Yehudi, Many of the recipes you'll find at the ADA site are HIGH-carb, low-fat, or include artificial sweeteners. Every T2 person is different, but I haven't met a single one (I'm T2 for 10+ years) whose blood sugar benefits from that combination.

Try testing your blood sugar after eating specific foods. It will let you see what you react to. For most people, it's going to be grains, starches, and processed food.

Search the web for recipes with whole foods. The less-processed, the better. The closer to its natural state, the better. One of my favorite sites is http://nomnompaleo.com (note: it's more veggie than Atkins-style).

Test. It's the only way you'll see what you can safely eat.
