A festive menu for diabetics

17 December, 2011 ,

We are concluding our trilogy of menus for people with specific dietary needs, with a specially designed festive menu for diabetics. There’s no reason why you cannot celebrate just because you are diabetic, if you pay attention to a few points:

  • For example, if dinner takes place late in the evening, have a healthy snack beforehand, because people with diabetes should eat at regular times.
  • Restrict your alcohol consumption to reduce the risk of hypoglycemia.
  • It’s also better to prepare homemade pastries and baked products because they contain less fat and sugar than commercially made ones.
  • You should choose fruit desserts that all the guests will enjoy. There is no need to use sugar substitutes (like Splenda, Equal, etc.). Just use a small amount of sugar, as in the below menu.

Happy holidays!
