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.

BARBECUED PORK SANDWICHES

2 (1-1 1/2 lbs total) pork tenderloin
1/3 cup barbecue sauce (watch sugar content)
4 pita bread rounds (whole-grain)
1/2 cup prepared horseradish
1 onion, thinly sliced
4 romaine lettuce leaves
1 red bell pepper, cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
1 green bell pepper, cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place tenderloins in roasting pan; brush with barbecue sauce and bake at 400 degrees and 15 minutes.  Turn and bake another 15 minutes or internal temperature of 160 degrees. Transfer to a cutting board and cover with foil.

Allow roast to stand for 10 - 15 minutes before slicing allowing the internal temperature to continue to rise during this time.

Slice meat across the grain and cut each pita bread in half.

Spread the horseradish inside each of the pita halves and stuff with the pork slices, onion, lettuce, and bell peppers.
