Does anyone know where I could find some diabetic meal plans (for ideas what to have) or even a list. For instance, out of the carb selection, you can choose this. Out of the protein selection, you can choose this. Make sense?

I appreciate any feedback.

Here's a website from Mayo Clinic. If your dietician has you following exchanges, this will help a lot. It's actually an easy way to start until you memorize the amounts of carbs/cal/fats etc. in food. It all just becomes a habit after a while. Watch carbs-- that's the most important number you will ever need to know. Insulin dosages are based on that most of the time. Rule of thumb I go by: 15 carbs jack up your blood levels 60 pts. on average.

Hope this helps!
