Delicious Thanksgiving recipes for everyone at the table, including people with diabetes
Food plays a central role in family celebrations and holidays, especially at Thanksgiving. If you have diabetes—or if you’re cooking for someone who does—you don’t have to eat special foods or be excluded from what “everyone else” is eating. (In fact, everyone else should be taking their cue from what’s on your plate!)
Most of our diabetes-appropriate Thanksgiving recipes are low in calories (and between 1 to 2 1/2 carbohydrate servings), but any EatingWell recipe can fit into your diet. These Thanksgiving recipes are updates of classic dishes and twists on traditional fare, made healthy by using high-impact flavors like fresh herbs, spices and seasonal fruits and vegetables to minimize the need for gobs of butter, cream and salt. Enjoy!
