Low carb alternatives - Recipes and snacks!

Hi everyone!!

As a type one diabetic, I am always looking for new foods and recipes that are low in carbohydrates. Things like pasta, pizza, pancakes, and other food with a high carb count are always tricky for diabetics. I have discovered many different foods that can serve as an alternative for those high carb foods.

I wanted to share some of those foods with you, and ALSO give you all a chance to share YOUR discoveries and ideas! Also, if you have a certain food in mind that you'd love to find a low-carb alternative for.. post it here. Perhaps someone can come up with something.

Here are some low carb foods that I love:

Spaghetti Squash:
A good alternative for pasta.

Shiritake noodles:
Noodles made from tofu that are EXTREMELY low carb, low fat, and low calories.

Pancakes made from JUST EGGS!

Grilled salmon:

Grilled chicken:

Low carb SNACK ideas:

-Nuts (Almonds, cashews, peanuts..)
Coat with cinnamon and splenda, and roast in the oven for flavor!


-Cheese (regular or vegan)

-Grilled or steamed vegetables

-Sugarfree Jello

-Celery or Carrots dipped in peanut butter

Now it's your turn! Share your ideas.

Alexi and the CURE DIABETES Team!
