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.

CRUSTLESS HAM AND SPINACH QUICHE

1 cup chopped onion
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1 tbsp canola oil
1 pkg (10-oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, well drained
2/3 cup finely chopped cooked ham
5 eggs
3 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper

In a large skillet saute the onion and mushrooms in the oil.  Saute until veggies are tender.  Add the spinach and ham to the skillet; cook, stirring, until the excess moisture is evaporated.  Allow to cool slightly.

Beat the eggs in a bowl, add the cheese and mix well.  Stir in the spinach mixture, add the pepper and blend together well.

Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared baking dish.  Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes or until a smooth knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings.
