Do you have any vegan diet plans for people on a pre-diabetic diet? I know vegan or vegetarian are great, but I also have to have minimal protein because of the purine diet for uric acid. Any suggestions on customizing a meal plan option.

Hi, Denise! You can opt for a vegan or vegetarian meal plan and I will further manually-customize it for you to eliminate some of the protein-rich recipes. Just send me an email after you've ordered it so I can make the changes.
