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.

HOMEMADE DRY ONION SOUP MIX

This recipe makes the equivalent to 1 packet purchased dry onion soup mix.  You can make this even healthier by using sodium-free instant bouillon for a salt-free mix.

2 2/3 tbsp dried onion flakes
4 tsp beef instant bouillon powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp celery seed

Combine all ingredients and store in a plastic zip-top bag or an airtight container.  Use in recipes just as you would the purchased mix.
