Answer: I'm a type 2 diabetic and I cook very simply. I steam a lot of vegetables. Cook chicken or salmon a lot seasoning with either Rosemary (salmon) or McCormick's California Style Lemon Pepper with Garlic and onion. Salads are great. Watch starchy foods. These are no nos for diabetics. No corn bread, corn, rice, potatoes (except 3 small new potatoes), dried beans. A simple sugar-free pudding or small bowl of berries makes a good dessert.
