I'm diabetic, so I have to be careful about how many carbs and fats I eat, and trying to regain my girlish figure, so am watching calories in general. It's hard to find things that are tasty and "legal." The recipes here are both.

Asparagus & Cashew Brown Rice

Cookbook creator says: This is a great recipe for diabetics--absolutely delicious! I cut the asparagus into 3" tips & chopped the stems; skipped the salt; & steamed rather than boiled them, in a steamer bag. I'd add sliced mushrooms next time, & maybe some chopped pimiento (for color).Submitted by MINDCRUSHER1376

Homemade Baked Ziti with Ground Beef & Sausage

This is *not* low sodium--next time, I'll leave the sausages out altogether, and either find canned tomatoes in a more reasonable range, or use fresh--but it is about as low-carb and low-fat as I know how to make it. (I usually only have it on holidays.)Submitted by ADIPOSEROSE
