The foods you mention that you don't like cooked, do you like them raw? Adding raw foods to your diet is an important part of controlling your diabetes, since it adds fiber that you need. I have been Type 2 since I turned 40, I am now 55.
It is difficult sometimes but it will get better. The way I keep myself on track is reminding myself that the closer I stick to the guidelines, the healthier I'll feel for longer. If you don't take insulin or pills, sticking to the guidelines helps to keep you from needing either one longer.
Good luck and let us know how you're doing. Please contact the American Diabetic Association by mail or on the web. I'm sure they can help with your recipe search and be sure and see a diabetic educator at your hospital. Your doctor can set it up. They can be a big help, also check to see if there is a support group, too. The Canadian Diabetic Association also has a website that has recipes you might enjoy. (03/01/2008)
