The carb content isn't as important if it's all coming from veggies, I can have all of the veggies I want. I'm a diabetic, and I just stopped taking my meds at my dr's advice. We're trying to combat this thing with diet now, so I'm only allowed to eat veggies, meat, dairy and some fruit.Answer Question

You aren't allowed beans or lentils? Several recent studies have shown that a low fat vegan diet is better for Type 2 Diabetics than the traditional ADA diet. http://diabetes.webmd.com/news/20081001/vegan-diet-good-type-2-diabetes You can get free meal plans and recipes from Dr. McDougall, or find his books at your local library: http://www.drmcdougall.com/free.html

I'm diabetic as well.Â There are many recipes that you can adapt to your low carb diet.Â I follow the South Beach plan to help control my blood sugars. These aren't SB recipes but I still use them.Â My non-diabetic family likes them too!
Savory Beef & Vegetable Stew (leave out the potatoes if you want)
Crockpot Chicken & Vegetable soup (leave out the corn...it's a starchy veggie) - my family loves this one!
Italian Lentil Barley soup (barley is low on the glycemic index but you can cut back to 1/4 c.Â the net carb effect is around 13 g per serving on this soup)
