To make your recipes more diabetes-friendly, tweak your cooking methods with these simple tricks.

Luckily, there are lots of ways to adapt recipes for your type 2 diabetes diet, and there are diabetes cookbooks that offer a wide range of delicious dishes from many flavorful cuisines. You can also learn to use healthier cooking methods in order to reduce the amount of saturated fat in food, making the resulting dishes more diabetes-friendly.

Here are some easy ways to make your meals healthier so that you can help manage your type 2 diabetes:

  • Broil, grill, poach, steam, bake, or roast meat or fish. These methods either do not require added fat or allow the fat to drip away from the food during cooking.
  • Try marinating meat overnight to add flavor without fat.
  • In a wok or skillet, use low-sodium broth instead of oil to quickly brown foods like meat or tofu.

With these healthier cooking methods, you’ll be able to create diabetes-safe meals the whole family will enjoy, without sacrificing flavor. Still not sure what to make tonight for dinner? Check out this list of delicious diabetes-friendly dinner ideas.
