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!
