I'm reading Dr Barnard's Reversing Diabetes Program book, and it's very good. That might give you some insight too. Like Elaine said, with an insulin dependant diabetic, it can be trickier, but a veg diet can still be overall a healthier diet for them, allowing the insulin to be reduced. He too recommends vegetables, a few fruits, legumes. beans, and whole grain pastas over bread. He doesn't even knock the mock meats to get people off of meat and dairy, which he says to immediately stop. He doesn't recommend counting carbs or calories, as when you are eating whole foods, with the fiber intact, it'll fill you up, and you won't need to.
As far as recipes go, does she have a favorite ethnic food like Italian or Mexican? Cooking from that group of food would be a good place to start.
