In honor of National Diabetes Month, try the healthy recipes below to help in your own fight with diabetes, reduce the likelihood of developing it, or to support loved ones battling the disease.

Squash Soup

This warm, comforting dish is the perfect starter for any fall meal. Made with squash, pumpkin, carrot, onion and herbs, this soup is chock-full of nutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin E and vitamin K.

Baked Chicken with Vegetables

Everyone loves a simple one-pan meal, and this one happens to be healthy! Hearty chicken, onions, potatoes and carrots are all roasted together on a baking sheet to create a savory dish that requires minimal preparation and clean up. 

Apple Cranberry Salad Toss

This crisp, crunchy salad makes a perfect light meal or a delicious first course for lunch or dinner. Tart and bursting with fall flavors, the Apple Cranberry Salad Toss is a good source of antioxidants and fiber.

Winter Crisp

When the weather cools down, warm, fresh-out-of-the-oven desserts become almost irresistible. This Winter Crisp, made with whole wheat flour, rolled oats, apples and fresh cranberries, will satisfy any sweet tooth without packing on as many calories and grams of sugar as other recipes.
