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.

PARMESAN PITA TRIANGLES

If you are looking for appetizers or snacks to serve when diabetics are around, these little triangles are a good idea.  Serve with hummus for a tasty but healthy snack.

6 pita bread rounds, split in half
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Set out 2 ungreased baking sheets.

Cut each bread half into six triangles.

In a 9 X 13-inch baking pan, mix the butter, garlic powder, and onion powder together.  Add the pita bread triangles and toss to coat well.  Add the Parmesan cheese and mix well.

Arrange in single layers on the two baking sheets.  Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes until lightly browned.

Makes 72 appetizer triangles.
