WELCOME TO DIABETIC ENJOYING FOOD

I have chosen this name for this blog because it truly states my story. I am a type II diabetic who most certainly enjoys food. When I was diagnosed with diabetes several years ago, my blood sugar level was over 400. With some oral medications, a lot of research and some trial and error, I have found that unlike my ancestors I truly can continue to enjoy food. I hope this blog will help you to also enjoy food and be healthy. Some recipes are my originals and some I have collected.

EASY WAYS TO FIGURE SERVING SIZE

It is easy to figure out a serving of foods by remembering the following: For soups or pasta, measure out 1 1/2 cups in a 2-cup glass measuring cup. For foods in a round cake-type dish or pan ie cakes, cornbread, pie, quiche, a slice 1/8 of the whole is considered a serving. For square baking dishes or pans ie cake, bars, lasagna, casseroles, etc, a square 1/6 of the whole is considered a serving.
