You've heard about diabetes "superfoods" -- the foods packed with nutrients that may help protect against diabetes complications -- and maybe even tried to remember to put them on your grocery list whenever you can. But it's not always easy to figure out ways to fit these foods into your daily meals.
To that end, we have created a one-week plan of dinners that take advantage of many of the superfoods. You can use the dLife recipes we provide or go off on your own and be creative.
