You'll need to keep the glycemic index of your dish low. This can be done using whole grains and vegetables and keeping the fat content fairly low. You can increase flavor using spices. Salads are good, as are soups that don't have cream in them. Here's a handy chart in case you haven't already got one: http://www.southbeach-diet-plan.com/glycemicfoodchart.htm
