Dinner. The main meal of the day that is also often the biggest one. Choices are tempting. Whether you go out or stay home for dinner, there is an abundance of great main course dishes out there to enjoy. But if you have diabetes, things are getting a bit challenging. When making your dinner plans, carbohydrate counting and portion control come into the picture since you have to manage your blood sugar levels as well as your weight. To make sure your main course is diabetes-friendly, apply the following strategy.

First of all, try to avoid frying and mostly stick with roasting, grilling, or baking. This way you will avoid using unnecessary fat. Also, stay away from excessively breading your meats with breadcrumbs or flour as they add on carbs and calories. For the same reason of controlling your calorie intake, don’t get carried away with heavy sauces as well. You should also complement your main course with peas, brown rice, beans, and vegetables such as broccoli, tomatoes, lettuce, cauliflower, and other vegetables.

Although diabetes implies certain food limitations, there is still a broad range of main course dishes to indulge in. Here are a few of our favorite main course recipes for you to try.
