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.

HOT CHICKEN SALAD

2 tbsp melted butter
2 cups Corn Flakes
2 tbsp chopped pimento
3/4 cup Real Mayonnaise
2 cups cooked chicken, diced
3/4 cup diced celery
1/2 tsp salt

Pour the butter over the Corn Flakes, set aside.  Blend remaining ingredients. Put in a 1 1/2 qt. casserole; top with Corn Flakes. Bake 15 minutes at 300 degrees.

Note: This is an old recipe from a childhood friend of my mother's. You probably already know that I won't allow chicken to enter my mouth. But my mother who was diabetic enjoyed this salad without raising her blood sugar so I am posting it here.
