One diabetic-safe recipe is grilled pork tenderloin with peach salsa, according to the American Diabetes Association. To make it, sprinkle 1 pound of pork tenderloin with 1 teaspoon of dried oregano, 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper. Grill the meat for 12 to 15 minutes, turning it often for even cooking, before removing it from the grill and allowing it to rest for 10 minutes. To make the peach salsa, combine 2 diced and peeled peaches with 1 finely diced green bell pepper and 1/2 cup of finely diced red onion. Serve the salsa over the pork tenderloin. This meal is diabetic-friendly for its lean protein, nonstarchy vegetable content and small amount of fruit.
To make fresh tomato crostini, mix together 4 chopped plum tomatoes, 1/4 cup of minced fresh basil, 1 minced garlic clove, 2 teaspoons of olive oil and freshly ground pepper to taste, explains Mayo Clinic. While allowing the mixture to sit covered for 30 minutes, cut 1/4 pound of Italian peasant bread into 4 slices and toast it. Serve it with the tomato mixture. This snack contains only one starch per serving.
