Diabetic-Friendly Meals


  • Those with diabetes type 2 must have a good balance of protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats in their diets.
  • No food is off limits, but counting carbs and fat is important.
  • 150 g of carbs is recommended daily, which is half the amount if you’re not diabetic. Carbs come from grains, starchy vegetables, fruits, milk, yogourt and sweets.
  • A farm breakfast of eggs, sausage, hashbrowns and pancakes is a no! Instead try oatmeal, fruit and an egg.
  • Forget the alfredo pastas – diabetes can lead to heart disease; Instead go for a tomato-based pasta.
  • Fried chicken with mashed potato and a biscuit – heavy in carbs and fat. Try roast chicken, veggies and sweet potatoes.
  • Forget the fish and chips and go for fresh grilled fish and veggies.
  • Chinese food? Go for a stir fry rather than egg rolls and fried rice.
