Diabetes Meal Plan

30 Day Meal Plan for people with Diabetes

Planning healthy meals can be a challenge, but what if someone did all the work for you? Well ... almost all the work! Below is an entire month's worth of menus for every day of the week, including snacks. Many of the recipes are right here on the website to assist you in creating delicious meals with less effort and more flavor. The menus are designed based on the principles of diabetes management: fruits, vegetables, lean protein, whole grains with minimal use of added sugars, fats and salt. Each food is listed with a portion size -- one of the best keys to good blood sugar control. When using Food Network recipes, a portion is one serving of the recipe unless otherwise indicated. You may choose to regulate the amount of salt, sugar and fat in each recipe according your needs, or to substitute different fruits and vegetables that are in season. We suggest you work with a health professional to design the best food plan for you.

Look over the next few days to see the daily plans for what you should be eating.
