diabetic recipes?
We have quite a few people coming over for of them being diabetic. I wanted to make sure we have plenty of stuff for her too so I was looking for recipes - mainly dinner roll recipe.

I was under the impression that diabetics can't have ANY sugar....but I saw diabetic recipes with sugar in it? :headscratch:

Obviously I know very little about the diabetic diet...can someone enlighten me? lol

Re: diabetic recipes?
sorry this is such a late reply.......but yes, they can have sugar, just not to much, its best to use splenda or stevia as a sugar substitute though.

Re: diabetic recipes?
This is also late, sorry :) but good for future.

Diabetics CAN have sugar, but the sugar adds to the total carb count that they are allowed to have per meal/snack. When I was insulin dependant during my pregnancy, I could have 45 total carbs per meal (3 carb choices), so that might mean a small apple, 2TSP salad dressing & a small serving of pasta - which left no room for pumpkin pie LOL! Occasionally I'd forgo the healthy carbs and indulge in a small piece of cake or something though, but never enough to max out my carb intake balanced with the other requirements. I ate a LOT of sugar-free jello because it was a *free* food!
