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.

CINNAMON RAISIN BREAD PUDDING FROM EQUAL

Last week when we were at the Ft Worth VA they were passing out diabetic recipes.  This is one of them.

2 cups fat-free milk
2/3 cup Equal Spoonful or 16 packets Equal Sweetener
4 tbsp stick butter, melted
1 egg
2 egg whites
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
4 cups 3/4-inch cubes day old cinnamon raisin bread

Combine the milk, Equal, butter, egg, egg whites, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl; stir in the bread cubes.

Spoon the mixture into an ungreased 1 1/2-quart rectangular casserole dish.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes or until the pudding is set and a sharp knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
