Best Frozen Meals for Diabetes

Let's face it: frozen meals are handy. And on hectic days, having a meal in minutes can be a lifesaver. Even if you're making an effort to cook more, stocking your freezer with a few emergency meals can save you from ordering delivery or hitting the drive-thru, which can wreak havoc on your blood sugar. All of these meals keep sodium, calories, saturated fat and carbohydrates in check, which are important nutrients for people who have diabetes. These options are healthy choices for anyone who needs an easy meal to grab straight from the freezer in a pinch.

How to Make a Healthy Diabetes-Friendly Salad Bar Salad

Featured Recipe: Greek-Style Chicken Salad

Size Up Salad Bar Serving Spoons

Most spoons and tongs in salad bar ingredient containers hold 2 tablespoons, so you can count as you dish them up. Smaller spoons found in toppings such as nuts and sunflower seeds hold about 1-1/2 teaspoons, which is enough to add crunch without excess calories.

Diabetes-Friendly Easy Plate Method Dinners

Use the plate method formula for simple and delicious meal planning to help manage diabetes. Start with a 9-inch-diameter plate, divide your plate into three sections and fill in each section with the appropriate amount of each food group. The plate method lets you eyeball appropriate portions without having to actually pull out a measuring cup or count calories, which makes plating out a balanced, healthy meal simple and easy.

Making the Plate Method Work for You

Follow this formula for plating out a healthy meal, every time.
