Q. I need to learn how to cook healthy for my husband that have diabetic 2 can you help me with recipes meal for him thanks.
A. All fruits and vegetables can fit into a meal plan for diabetics. Starchy vegetables such as potatoes, peas, and fruits may need to be considered for their carbohydrate content. Also, canned fruits that are packed in syrup and sweetened frozen fruits will have more carbohydrate from the sugar. Unsweetened frozen fruits and canned fruits packed in juice or water are usually better choices for a diabetes diet.
The American Diabetes Association has some resources for meal planning. However, I strongly suggest that you consult a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) or Certified Diabetes Educator who can help design an appropriate meal plan based on your husband’s medical profile. His physician may be able to recommend someone, or you can find a RDN at www.eatright.org.
