Today we are launching our new Diabetic meal plan. This plan will provide tasty, simple recipes your entire family will enjoy as part of a healthy lifestyle, whether you have diabetes or not. These good-for-you recipes take the stress out of planning carb-smart meals.
We provide carbohydrate counts for each recipe to help you keep your blood sugar in check. Each meal plan includes five meals with 50 to 60 grams of carbohydrate (or about 4 Carb Exchanges) and two “low carb” meals with 30 to 40 grams of carbohydrate (or about 2 Carb Exchanges).* We provide the calories, grams of carbohydrate, and grams of fiber for each main dish and side dish to help you incorporate the recipes into your personal eating plan. All recipes are created with heart-health in mind, utilizing healthy cooking oils, lower-fat cuts of meat, whole grains, and plenty of vegetables and fruits. Whether you have diabetes or not, this meal plan can serve as a simple guide to enjoying heart-healthy balanced meals every night of the week.
Savor classic favorites like Taco Soup and Chicken Enchiladas, Slow Cooker selections like Smothered Steak, and even pasta dishes like Chicken and Cheddar Spaghetti, all recipes from the Diabetic sample meal plan.
*We based these carbohydrate counts on the most recent recommendations from the American Diabetes Association, which recommends a consistent carbohydrate diet rather than low-carb. If you’re interested in a low carb diet, check out our Low Carb meal plan.
The eMeals Diabetes meal plan is meant to serve as a guide for creating simple, balanced meals to help manage your diabetes. Although each of our recipes is reviewed by Registered Dietitians, always consult your health care provider before making any changes to your diet.
