6 Diabetes-Friendly Recipes to "Fall" in Love with This Season

Whether you're one of the 29 million people diagnosed with diabetes in the United States or simply looking to limit your carbohydrate intake, finding recipes that are both delicious and nutritious - without a lot of starch or sugars - can be difficult. Fortunately, Fall is just around the corner, and so are new Fall recipes!

The general recommendation for a diabetes-friendly, limited carbohydrate lifestyle is between 40 and 60 grams of carbohydrates per meal, or about 200-250 grams of carbohydrates per day. Of course, that number will vary from person to person depending on weight, age and physical activity level; it's best to consult with your physician, registered dietitian or certified diabetes educator to know what's best for you!

Combining the forces of our stellar culinary and nutrition teams, PeachDish has developed several recipes that are lower in carbohydrates and loaded with satisfying flavors that you're bound to "fall" for this season!

Below is a list of nine low carb dishes to look for on our Menu in the upcoming weeks:

French Style Vegetable Ragout with Carrots Turnips and Edamame

French-Style Vegetable Ragout with Carrots, Turnips & Edamame

Vegetable soup is more charming when we call it by its French name, n’est-ce pas? While a French-style ragout is often made with meat or seafood, this dish is comprised of generous chunks of seasonal vegetables simmered in a bit of delicious herbed broth - just enough to keep everything tender and well-seasoned without turning the dish into soup. Edamame (young soybeans) add satisfying protein and a nice pop of green to the pot.

Beef-Mushroom Fettucine with Roasted Peppers

Beef-Mushroom Fettuccine with Red Pepper, Spicy Greens & Parmesan

What’s more satisfying than a warm and filling pasta dish? Fettuccine gets a double hit of savory flavor with the combination of grass-fed ground beef and mushrooms, while roasted red peppers and spicy greens add a touch of zing to bolster those bold flavors. A welcome touch of heat comes from a spice blend made with dried herbs and crushed red pepper, while Parmesan cheese - stirred in right at the last minute - adds an extra layer of richness to every bite.

Mustard-Glazed Alaskan Sockeye Salmon with Blue Cheese, Walnut & Apple-Kale Slaw

Wild-caught sockeye salmon, topped with a simple, three-ingredient glaze, is roasted and paired with a captivating slaw made with ribbons of kale, sweet-tart apple, blue cheese and crunchy walnuts – a sophisticated upgrade from standard cabbage slaw.

Grass Fed Sirloin with Apple Sweet Potato and Dijon Sour Cream

Grass-Fed Sirloin with Apple, Sweet Potato & Dijon-Sour Cream

Steak night should be fun and fancy, but it doesn’t have to be a complicated. In this dish, both the steaks and the sides are put in the oven to cook, so there’s very little hands-on time (and fewer dishes to wash!). You should keep a timer handy, to be sure your steaks are cooked to your liking. Apple and sweet potato, baked together until tender and sweet, pair nicely with the juicy grass-fed sirloin. A quick sour cream sauce made with Dijon mustard has a tanginess that complements every single bite.

Chicken Chickpea Soup with Spinach, Tahini & Lemon

Chicken Chickpea Soup with Spinach, Tahini & Lemon

This soothing soup makes it easy to eat your greens during cool autumn months. It’s a light soup made filling with the help of protein-rich chicken thighs and chickpeas. Tahini, or sesame seed paste, gives the broth more body, and a twist of lemon keeps everything bright and cheerful.

Chicken Breast over Butternut Squash with White Bean & Apple Salad

Chicken Breast over Butternut Squash with White Bean & Apple Salad

Crisp apple, sage, green onion and white beans create an addictive melange with a flavor far greater than the sum of its parts. It plays nice with both the seared chicken and cumin-seasoned squash, which has the perfect balance of savory and sweet. Sage and butternut are the happiest of flavor combinations; they love to dance.
