Tips for hosts with diabetic guests

If your holiday guests have diabetes, here are some suggestions for meeting their needs without stressing yourself out, or making them feel self-conscious. Bonus: Your weight-conscious guests will thank you, too.

* Stock diet sodas and sugar-free mixers and juices if you’re making a signature cocktail.

* For appetizers, Jane Norman, a registered dietitian, recommends steamed whole edamame pods like you get in Japanese restaurants. “They’re high in fiber, low in carbs and have a limited effect on blood sugar,” she said. Other good options: hummus and fresh salsa served with celery for scooping instead of chips.

* Walnuts and pecans are among the lowest-carb nuts per ounce, but because of their high fat and calories, they are best enjoyed in small quantities.

* Cheeses are also low in carbs, but high in fat and calories, so enjoy in small amounts.

* Any lean meat, fish or poultry without skin.

* Nicole Johnson, who likes to limit carbs to about 30 per meal, suggests including a variety of salad greens and non-starchy vegetables. Serve dressings and sauces on the side so guests can better control calories, fat and carbs.

* For dessert, Norman suggests any kind of berries with light whipped topping. Johnson said this is especially good with a small slice of angel food cake.

* For breakfasts, berries, low-fat or fat-free milk, yogurt, sugar-free cereals, jams, whole-grain breads, egg substitute and sugar substitute are all good to have on hand.
