Recipes for Healthy Living
Being diagnosed with pre-diabetes or diabetes does not mean you no longer can enjoy cooking or eating the things you love. There’s no such thing as a diabetic diet or diabetic recipes. Managing your diabetes with a healthy, balanced eating plan is what is important.
Cooking and preparing your own meals at home puts you in the driver’s seat. It gives you control of what you eat and a better understanding of how healthy eating can help you to better manage your blood glucose levels.
Here is a collection of some of our favourite recipes that have featured in our newsletters and Diabetes Matters, our member magazine. All of these recipes have been approved by Diabetes WA’s team of dieticians and Credentialled Diabetes Educators. These recipes are also good for people without diabetes. Enjoy!!
