I want to try recipes, and if necessary change portion size and fiber count to equal correct amounts for one diabetic exchange. That way the food can still be eaten and hopefully enjoyed while keeping numbers in range

Jalapeno & Potato Soup
Very Good 4.5/5
(28 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: this recipe is 8 portions, but if I double it, the carbohydrates will be half of amount listed, less fiber. It sounds so good. I will also try with same amount of sweet potatoes and see what it is like.

Whole-Wheat Buttermilk Biscuits
Very Good 4.3/5
(38 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: I will substitute amaranth flour and change veggies and try with fruit, both fresh and dried. If fruit is added, I will add cinnamon and a pinch of ground cloves. If I want to eat two and know it, I will double the portions of the recipe.

Sausage, Egg & Cheese Breakfast Roll-Up
Very Good 4.4/5
(73 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: I would eliminate approximately 10g carbohydrate by rolling in endive leaf, instead of tortilla (also eliminates 50 calories) and I would half this and make only one serving. I may also consider changing sausage to, shredded (pulled) turkey or/and chicken, would be less fat and healthier.

Quinoa-Black Bean Casserole
Very Good 4.1/5
(464 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: I will work on this recipe, thinking one sweet potato shredded instead of two, would reduce the carbohydrates quite a bit depending on the size of it.
