Good websites for diabetes friendly diets (Type 1)?

My boyfriend is diabetic (type 1) and I am not. Lately, on our regular diet of things that probably aren’t the best idea for diabetics (fast food, junk food), he’s been having a lot of blood sugar spikes. I would search websites myself, but I have no idea what is a legitimately good website for diabetics and what is just a website that gives you low-carb foods. I was wondering if anyone who has diabetes (type 1) uses a specific website to create meal plans or look up recipes. Preferably ones that have good recipes or good hints. Thanks!
