Hello Dragonfly, I'm sure mealtimes are tricky with you two having different needs! For the diabetes, the best place to start is right here. Look for the lists of food we've talked so much about
, including a recent one about
sources of protein. Knowing what he can eat will help guide you two as to what to cook. In general a diabetic should stay away from carbohydrates because they drive blood sugar very high. Most vegetables except potatoes are great. All meat/fish/poultry are fine. Try to stay away from packaged food because they usually have added ingredients like flour, corn syrup, sugar, etc. For specific recipes, you could look at the low-carber forum: http://forum.lowcarber.org/index.php
? I hope this helps. Let us know how that goes.
