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.

CREAMY GARLIC SALAD DRESSING

1 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1/2 cup olive oil mayonnaise
1/3 cup low-fat milk
2 tsp SPLENDA
2 green onions, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp fresh ground black pepper

In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, milk and SPLENDA. Stir in the onions, garlic, salt and pepper. Cover and place in refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.

For a change of flavor, try roasting the garlic before adding to the mixture. Yum!

If the garlic flavor is a little too much for you, use 1 garlic clove instead of two.

You can take this basic recipe and come up with a delicious dressing to suit your taste. Try replacing the salt with paprika or chili powder for a spicier dressing. Let your imagination run wild!
