I've been on the Portfolio Diet for 9 months and have reduced my cholesterol very succesfully and while we tend to have DIY breakfasts and lunches my partner would have a tofu stir fry in the evening with me.
He has now been diagnosed as pre-diabetic and I'm wondering how to help him adjust and incorporate his needs without either of us feeling too deprived. For many recipes I can just susbstitute artificial sweeteners but we've both got quite a sweet tooth; it would be nice to have cakes and puddings occasionally but fat and sugar seem to be the basis of most of them and I'm not sure when they are essential for the structure of the recipe. Unfortunately he hates nuts and I've got to reduce salt for blood pressure.
Can anyone help, please?
