I have a friend who is verging on underweight and needs to gain some kilos, so what are your favourite tasty healthy calorically-dense foods/recipes?
Except: my friend is type-II diabetic and is controlling blood sugar levels only with diet - for a whole bunch of reasons, physicians aren't recommending medication right now - so anything heavy with empty carbohydrates wouldn't work.
My friend loves food and is willing to try anything as long as it won't spike blood sugar, so even the most random recipes would be appreciated!
(Also: I suggested protein shakes, but after looking at the local bodybuilding shop the tubs are too expensive to buy and try out once - do any of you know of diabetic-friendly protein powders/brands?)
