@ Sehhoward - I am diabetic, and most of my life I've NOT gotten enough protein on a daily basis. When I look at all those recipe examples above what I see is mostly carb options boosted with some protein powder, it's not an all protein diet void of all carbs (which I agree would not be good).
In my past my meals would be mostly carbs (ex. large plate of pasta & sauce with little meat or vegetables), and the result of that lifestyle has given me diabetes. This article is very helpful for me in helping me find new ways of still enjoying the carbs I love (and would miss dearly if I had to give them up cold turkey) and also boosting and getting much needed protein into my diet.
What I am finding so helpful in general about this site (incl this article) and their meal planning features is that they encourage you to eat a large variety of foods each day, so that we can attempt to optimize the ratio of carbs/protein so that we are in fact eating a balanced diet.
