Avoid spikes in blood sugar levels and even lose a few pounds with these simple dinner ideas.
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.
