 From Eating Well.   Steak with  Cheddar Roasted Cabbage.  A mix of roasted cabbage and red onion is topped with melted cheese for a divine side to steak in this quick and healthy dinner recipe. Serve with a mixed green salad or toasted and lightly buttered bread.  Diabetic friendly.

Irish Lamb Stew  is quite like an Irish penicillin.  This stew is rich ad full of  potatoes, leeks and carrots . .  sure to cure whatever ails you. In traditional fashion, nothing here is browned first, just all stewed together. To keep it healthy make sure to trim the lamb of any visible fat before you cook it.  Low in calories, saturated fat and also diabetic friendly.
