Thanksgiving Recipe: Diabetes-Friendly Cornbread Stuffing

DBS_Blog_DTOP_Belowtitle_336x280

Stuffing is nearly as traditional a dish during Thanksgiving as the turkey. Not only is the crowd-favorite great during your holiday feast, it also makes tasty leftovers, which personally, I prefer to the meal itself!

Unfortunately, it’s typically pretty high on the glycemic index, not to mention loaded with carbs. Plus, more often that not, it packs a mighty punch in the calorie and sodium department to boot. Therefore, even though I love it, I try to avoid it in favor of a small portion of one of my other favorites.

But this year, I’m so excited to try a new take on stuffing that looks delicious and incredibly easy to make (apparently, it only takes 30 minutes)! The recipe includes fresh rosemary, oregano, basil, thyme, and homemade vegetable broth. The best part? It’s a healthy diabetes-friendly alternative to the traditional recipe.

Why is that so awesome? Because it means I can indulge in a little bit of stuffing and still have room for one of my other Thanksgiving favorites! Pumpkin pie, anyone?
