Cooking for a Diabetic?
My father-in-law has diabetes and my motherinlaw hasn't made much of a difference in her cooking until recently. I hate to say this, but she's not a great cook to begin with, so the changes she's implemented have resulted in some pretty awful food so far. Really bland and tasteless.
I was trying to talk to her about what exactly makes a recipe good for diabetics and she couldn't give me a straight answer.
It seems to me that tasty food is an option here as long as I look out for sugar/carb content. Or am I totally off base?
So I look to you all - can you give me some guidelines for cooking for a diabetic? What should I keep in mind? Any good sites out there I should check out? Any tasty recipes you can suggest?
Any help is appreciated.
