7 Low-Carb Dinner Recipes for Diabetes - Mini–Turkey Meatloaves

Eating low-carb meals can help people with type 2 diabetes avoid spikes in blood sugar levels and even lose a few pounds. These simple dinner ideas are so delicious and satisfying that you won't miss the starchy rice, potatoes, or pasta!
Mini–Turkey Meatloaves
Traditional meatloaf is made with fatty ground chuck and refined white bread crumbs, but I've mastered a lighter, lower-carb version by substituting lean ground turkey for the beef and omitting the bread crumbs. Plus, I mix in chopped red bell peppers and carrots to add a blast of nutrition and a pop of color. The meat mixture is baked in a muffin pan instead of the usual loaf pan, creating individual mini-meatloaves that offer built-in portion control. For a picture-perfect diabetes-friendly dinner, enjoy two pieces with a serving of no-starch Cauliflower Mashed "Potatoes" and steamed sugar-snap peas.
