U of I Extension offers Recipes for Diabetes website
University of Illinois Extension has launched a newly-revised website version of Recipes for Diabetes.
Today, 25.8 million children and adults in the U.S. — or 8.3 percent of the population — have diabetes. Because of the high incidence of this disease, U of I Extension offers this website with a variety of recipes with nutritional analysis for people with diabetes. More than 80 photographs have been added that show what each dish looks like.
These recipes have been either part of Illinois Extension’s Dining with Diabetes or Living Well with Diabetes programs, or have been featured in the Illinois Extension newsletter Diabetes Lifelines.
Each recipe also contains an approximate nutritional analysis for calories, protein, carbohydrate, fat, saturated fat, fiber, sodium and cholesterol. Exchanges have been calculated based on the exchange list of the American Diabetes Association and the American Dietetic Association. For those using the carbohydrate counting method of meal planning, carbohydrate units are also provided.
The site was developed by Karen Chapman-Novakofski, Extension specialist, Foods and Nutrition.
