I’m looking into some form of collaboration between TuDiabetes and FurtherFood.com, to bring our community creative, delicious and diabetes-friendly recipes. Further Food is a brand new site with a strong focus on presenting recipes that work for people with different health conditions (on the site you can choose your condition to get a list of recipes for it), including diabetes, along with dietician commentary on each recipe, stories from people who have the different conditions, and more. I think it’s a great concept! Please try this recipe, check out their website, and let me know what you think!
