Please Help Me
Ok guys this was started in another post so I thought I would make a seperate one since I hope to get a good response and diabetes (type 2) being as common as it is, I thought this would be a great thread.
So - here's the deal - someone VERY close to me is a diabetic (type 2) and I am looking for recipes - good food that he can eat without having to worry bout sugar content - obviously the hardest recipes to track down would be the sweet stuff like cookies etc etc - desserts
Also if anyone has cooking experience with Splenda and knows how to use it in some things that would be VERY good.
Alright guys - thanks a lot - I appreciate any responses.

You guys are the best - thanks so much!!
I have seen the splenda site and didnt find many recipes there - I will have to check again as it has been a little while.

And for anyone else this friend is NOT a bodybuilder (I am just using this board for my own selfish needs) so it doesn't need to be like a protein pie or anything Just some qulaity low to no sugar food
