Many people these days are looking at vegetarian or vegan diets as low glycemic alternatives to the Standard American Diet (S.A.D.), and as dietary solutions to diabetes.

According to Dr. Gabe Mirkin, adopting a plant-based diet helps Type 2 diabetics to stabilize their blood sugar levels, eliminate some side effects, reduce insulin dependence, and in some cases, reverse the course of the disease.

We have lots to learn about diabetic diet, but for now we're using low glycemic load, low carbs and low sugars as our diabetic friendly recipe guidelines.

Savvy Veg Comments:

We only know what many others know: Diabetes is an epidemic in North America, and the top culprit is the Standard American Diet.

After reading some of the diabetes articles online, and talking with diabetic authors such as Jessica Apple, we've begun to get a sense for what a diabetic vegetarian diet should include, and not include.

We were puzzled as much as enlightened by VRG's article on diabetic food exchanges for vegetarian diet. We're guessing that the basic principle is "How to eat what you want on your veggie diabetic diet without raising your blood sugar levels". We don't quite grasp the mechanics, but perseverence furthers!

We'll continue to develop our diabetic friendly recipes, and we'd love to hear your comments and suggestions for making our recipes more diabetic friendly.

Visitor Comment: My partner is a Type 1 diabetic and for her I cook any vegan recipe that is low in sugar and low in fat. If the recipe calls for sauteing vegetables in olive oil I will saute in water. Otherwise we enjoy nearly every recipe on your site. Our favourites are Tomato Chickpea Soup, Jamaican Red Bean Stew, Crockpot Quinoa Red Lentil Soup, and Mung Dhal Vegetable Soup. - Vibeka V.
