Vegetables such as broccoli, tomatoes, leafy greens, sweet potatoes plus many more can be utilized for each meal instead of always having white potatoes, peas and corn. Or learn how to become a master chef easily by making some of the best baked fish recipes comparable to any recipe you will ever find at a good restaurant.

- Finally, the major holiday gatherings is when the whole family is there. This year, add a few diabetic holiday recipes which will have other family members in awe of what you are allowed to eat on your new "restricted diet."
So just by mixing and matching your diabetic recipes, apply some substitutions to some of your current favorite recipes, you can actually reap the rewards of better health. This is because you have found a way to add an abundance of antioxidants, calcium, iron, vitamin and minerals, high fiber and protein selections, omega 3 fats- the good fats - and all of this will lead to a longer and healthier life.
