Lots of resources: If you have a smartphone try: myfitnesspal.Com or gomeals.Com there are also many others. There are also simple books and internet resources that list carbohydrate values. Don't forget that all carbo's are not created equal and look into the glycemic index information. You can try www.Mendosa.Com, or a good book: the new revolution for diabetes.

Vegetarian: Your friend has to have a long talk with his doctor or dietician prescribing the diet to be sure it is healthy for him. With diabetes one does not have the leeway to try different diets without professional assistance.
