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.

TILAPIA WITH A TOUCH OF RED PEPPER

4 (1 lb total) tilapia fillets
2 tbsp flour
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
salt & pepper to taste, optional
1 tbsp canola oil

In a shallow dish or pie plate, combine the flour and pepper flakes.  Stir in the salt and pepper, if using.  Coat the tilapia fillets in the flour mixture.

Heat the canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.   Cook the fillets in the skillet for 6 - 7 minutes or until fillets flake easily with a fork.  Carefully turn once during cooking.
