While you can make this recipe any time of year with frozen or canned corn, we suggest trying it with fresh corn at the height of summer. If you’re not a fan of lima beans, edamame makes a nice substitute and doesn’t need to be cooked.

During the holidays, we gather with friends and family to lavish each other with love...often in the form of food. As much as we all enjoy the sweets this time of year, they can be rough on our systems. That's true of everyone, but especially true of people with conditions like diabetes who need to watch their food carefully to manage their blood sugar safely. This year, why not show your love by adding in one or two options to help your guests manage their health?
