Alright, so I am a diabetic, and I go to a boarding school.

The food at the cafeteria is EXTREMELY high carb. I have complained about this, and they have have now come back to me asking for ideas for food that would be better suited to me...

Now, I could just give them a list of crappy veggies and weird foods that will end up tasting like crap. But, I decided to try my luck and see if anyone had some tasty foods that are low carb.

Thanks in advance.

Anything without grains and grain products (bread, pasta, etc.), fruits (although some berries are lower in carbs), and a select few vegetables (e.g. corn, potatoes) should be low in carbs as long as you don't add sugary sauces. That leaves a huge range of foods they can use. Also, are you vegetarian? Meats are pretty much carb free unless you add something to make it otherwise.

You might find something helpful in the Low GI thread or my now-dead low carb diet thread.
