Believe it or not, it is possible to get a delicious, healthful dinner on the table without breaking the bank. One key is to fill your plate with vegetables and legumes and to serve meat, poultry, and fish in smaller portions.

What follows are six diabetes-friendly menus that cost $6 per serving or less -- some significantly less.
