I have been compensated by Glucerna for this post; however, I am sharing my own thoughts. All opinions are my own. #SteadyIsExciting

Back when Ashley was still in school and living with us, it was always on my mind to create diabetic friendly meals whenever possible.  This was sometimes a challenge when I was trying to cook for both a teenage girl and a tween boy.

Diabetic Friendly Meals: Roast Tilapia with Red Potatoes and Green Peppers

One of the diabetic friendly meals that we all could agree on was tilapia and baby red potatoes.  Cooking fish wasn’t something I was that familiar with back then, but I quickly found that it’s really easy to make.

This particular tilapia recipe comes from the Glucerna website.  Just multiply the ingredients by the number of people you’re planning to serve.  And if you don’t have one already, I highly recommend a digital food scale.  It makes getting exact portions much easier.

If you have a diabetic friend or family member, you know how scary those blood sugar spikes can be.  Every time Ashley would come to us and say her blood sugar was low, it immediately sets you on high alert.  So even now that she’s living on her own, I keep Glucerna shakes and bars on hand so she can better manage her diabetes.
