Chili Lime Shrimp

From Lara Rondinelli-Hamilton, RD, LDN, CDE, and Chef Jennifer Bucko Lamplough, Healthy Calendar Diabetic Cooking, 2nd edition

This dish is not only really flavorful but also beautiful. Serve them on skewers, in a lettuce cup or over brown rice for a main dish. They are easy and a huge hit at parties!




Spanish Style Dates with Bacon

From Robyn Webb, The Diabetes Comfort Food Cookbook            

This may be short on ingredients, but three powerfully flavorful ingredients are all you need for a spectacular appetizer. The sweetness of the dates, crunch of the almond and the smoky bacon all come together into one fantastic mouthful.





From Barbara Seelig-Brown, The Stress Free Diabetes Kitchen

This recipe is quick, easy, nutritious and versatile and can be prepared a day or two ahead. The variety of toppings for your homemade Bruschetta allows guests to have it just the way they like!





Mini BBQ-Topped Potato Halves

From Nancy S. Hughes, 15-Minute Diabetic Meals

A “guy-pleaser” without the effort or heavy fat! Every bite is hearty and full-flavored. This dish is great year-round casual entertaining, buffet style or coffee table style. Great for game-day watching, too!




Jeweled Basmati Rice with Goji Berries

From Corinne Trang, Asian Flavors Diabetes Cookbook

This is a colorful, festive, nutritious, delicious and perfect side for the holidays. It is also naturally gluten-free!
