…the phrase irks me.  Pet peeve maybe?

No one food is more “friendly” than another.  Healthier, perhaps, but friendly is a personality trait not a food description.

Should you eat that hamburger using glazed donuts as a bun.

With or without diabetes, probably not.  Especially not on a routine basis.

For me, if someone wants to make a claim that something is diabetes friendly, provide us the nutritional information.

Especially the carb counts for the serving sizes.

In restaurants.

For recipes.

Pasta, rice, macaroni and cheese companies…I’m looking at you too.

With that information, anything can be “diabetes friendly.”

It’s about moderation, not deprivation.
