Low carb paleo is probably the best option so you keep insulin low & your blood sugar stable, so plenty of non-starchy veggies drenched in fats of all kinds, a bit of fish/meat, some nuts, cheese if tolerated.
It doesn't sound like much variety but there's plenty of different non-starchy veggies, plenty of different fishes, meats, fats & oils you can use.
Also, don't go too high on protein as excess just gets turned into glucose, which as a diabetic you don't want.
