Recipes and Cooking Substitutions

Posted on December 14, 2018

Recipes and cooking substitutes are one of the most common conversations among diabetics and for good reason! It can be intimidating to change what we eat. By sharing our favorite recipes with each other, we can avoid wasting money or making food that tastes bad. What are your favorite diabetes-friendly recipes?

On DiabetesTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with type 2 diabetes, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Recipes and cooking substitutes are two of the top topics most discussed.

Here are some conversations about recipes and cooking substitutes:

"This is a recipe I found today in my newspaper and thought that since Thanksgiving is next week I will try it. It looks diabetic friendly and better then the green bean casserole. Recipe: Zippy Green Beans"

"I made this chickpea salad today. REALLY good...here’s the recipe if anyone wants...."

"Currently making a breakfast meatloaf... Recipe: Morning Meatloaf Keto-Friendly"

"Made these today. They’re definitely going on my holiday dessert list. Recipe: No-Bake Pumpkin Pie Mason Jar Cheesecake"

"In need of healthy dinner recipes. Im newly diagnosed and frightened to change my eating habits."

Suggestion for a decadent "cake" for a celebration of a major life milestone?
