Joella gets bored and forgets to try new things to keep staying on a health giving diabetic diet.  An easy recipe for the uninspired is my version of Corned beef and Cabbage.

First, get a large pot, I use a stainless steel 4 quart pot with a heavy aluminum bottom to spread the heat.  Next I add a little olive oil about 2 tablespoons, slice up a large onion and start it to "fry" on medium heat.  Since carbs are somewhat limited, I peel and slice a medium potato for each person who is eating...actually two are enough for up to four servings.   After adding the potatoes, put a lid on the pot and stir occasionally to keep things from sticking.  Cook for about 15 minutes...while this is cooking thinly slice a medium head of cabbage, not over three lbs.   When cooking reaches the 15 minute mark add the cabbage, drizzle with about 1 tablespoon of oil  and stir to coat the cabbage.  Add any salt or pepper you might need at this point and about 1/4 cup water.  
I use canned corned beef, remove from the can and break it up or slice it and put on top of the cabbage, onion and potato mix.   Leave the lid cocked and cook for about 5 minutes or until cabbage is done enough for you.  I like mine a little crispy and not boiled to death..but cook how you like it. Nice served in soup bowl with a wide rim so you can add sliced tomatoes and cucumbers along the outside for decoration and enjoyment.  Even if the corned beef is a little heavy on calories it can meet the calorie test because it is mixed in the the cabbage....
