It's time to start planning your Easter menu and it can be challenging to accommodate relatives with special dietary requests. If cooking for a diabetic is on your to-do list, we've got healthy, spring-inspired recipes with 30 grams of carbohydrates (or less) per serving.

Brunch Ideas

How about Easter brunch? That'll leave you free for more family time and (hopefully) a little time to relax at the end of the day. A spread of breakfast fare, lunch dishes and some veggie-heavy sides will please everyone.

Dinner

If a more traditional Easter supper is more your speed, make any combo of these mains and sides.

Desserts

Don't forget about dessert!  Bars and cookies help keep portions of sugar under control. These goodies range from 7 to 14 grams of carbs per piece.
