I need some meal ideas.

My husband has diabetes and renal disease, and I need some meal ideas: meats, vegetables, bread and dessert. Thanks so much. Oh, and some snack ideas as well. Thanks.

DaVita.com/Recipes has more than 800 recipes to choose from, and each one denotes if it is appropriate for people with diabetes or not. The recipes are divided into categories (i.e., breads, vegetables, beef, lamb and pork, desserts, etc.) so they are easy to search. You may also find the DaVita Diet Helper (www.davita.com/diethelper) to be a helpful, too. Be sure to check with your husband's physician to obtain his correct kidney diet prescription. Best of luck.
