Recipes for Diabetes
Resource Type:Online Resource
Website and/or Calendar Links
These recipes have been either part of Illinois Extension's Dining with Diabetes or Living Well with Diabetes programs, or have been featured in the Illinois Extension newsletter Diabetes Lifelines.
Each recipe also contains an approximate nutritional analysis for calories, protein, carbohydrate, fat, saturated fat, fiber, sodium, and cholesterol. Exchanges have been calculated based on the exchange list of the American Diabetes Association and the American Dietetic Association. For those using the carbohydrate counting method of meal planning carbohydrate units are also provided.
It must be emphasized that the nutritional analysis, exchanges, and carbohydrate units are all based on the serving size included on the recipe. Larger servings will have more calories, more exchanges, and more carbohydrate units. An understanding of how calories and blood sugar are related can also be found at the Your Guide to Diet and Diabetes website at the link above.
We hope you enjoy these recipes, and invite you to share your favorite recipes with us either through your Extension unit office. Please remember we can't return recipes and can't promise we will post them to the website.
