As diabetics we are always looking for healthy options to substitute for some of the common ingredients in our recipes. Here are a couple of examples:
Instead of sour cream use low-fat Greek yogurt. This in an excellent substitution to use in dips and dressings and in baking.
Instead of using bread crumbs when called for in recipes substitute whole-grain bread crumbs or wheat germ.
You will be surprised how much these simple, mostly unnoticed changes will make in your diet!
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. Everyone reacts different to various foods. Check your blood sugar readings so you will know whether or not a recipe works for you! And feel free to take a recipe and adjust it to suit your needs.
