Ingredients

2 small turkey tenderloins (about 1/2 pound each)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

One 4-ounce can chopped green chilies, or 1/2 cup mild giardiniera pepper-vegetable mixture, drained

Prepare a charcoal grill or preheat the broiler.

look at the American Diabetes Association website to get "proper" diabetic recipes.

Mostly they cut out the salt, sugar and fats from anything and everything. They think a serving of 45 grams of carb is good dessert or main dish.

You can substitute Splenda for equal amounts of sugar in any recipe. Look for Splenda for baking in the baking aisle. They even have a brown sugar version.

Having had diabetes myself for over forty years, I have found that there really aren't "diabetic" receipes. Diabetics eat the same food as anyone else, its only that the portions have to be managed. A balanced diet of carbs, proteins, vegs and fruits (The same that is recommended for everyone.) I think you will find that your guest will be happy if you just prepare your normal fare. We can even eat a small serving of regular dessert occaisionly. Hope this helps.

There are several diabetic cookbooks available, and many regular recipes can be adapted for diabetics. The American Diabetes Association website has good information on available cookbooks. You might also try looking on line with "diabetic recipes". (Most public libraries have several excellent cookbooks available.)
