Tips  

Vegetables fill you up with few calories. That's why the latest American Diabetes Association recommendation is that fruits and vegetables should fill half of your plate, meat should fill only one-fourth, and a carbohydrate dish should fill the remaining fourth. With recipes like this, it's a snap!
