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.

Avocado-Feta Dip
Gina’s Quiche Tartlets
Green Tea Poached Salmon With Ginger Lime Sauce
Arugula Salad With Pesto
Apple and Ham Salad
Roasted Carrots
Asparagus With Tangy-Smoky Dressing (above)

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

Mushroom Stuffed Pork Tenderloin
Orange-Baked Ham
Sarsaparilla Basted Ham
Snap Pea Salad With Tarragon and Fennel
Lemony Hearts of Palm Salad
Fennel Potatoes
Glazed Radishes
Sautéed Kale

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.

Chocolate-Hazelnut Drops
Lemon Thyme Bars
Almond Snowballs
Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
Lavender and Lemon Cookies
