Like "Both Ray and Jaybee have great advice for you. Our site it filled with all kinds of great recipes and ideas. http://www.diabeticconnect.com/recipes Just type in what you want to make and the nutritional values should be there to help you make a decision. I keep good foods posted on my frige with the carbs next to it, calories and some other things. That is what I tend to ususally have on hand. Just keep a log of what you are doing, specially in the beginning, as it will show you patterns and bumps to avoid."
