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.

Rinse the turkey breast and pat dry with paper towels.

Place turkey, meaty side up, in slow cooker.

Place the onion quarters and the garlic cloves around the sides of the turkey.

Place lid on cooker and cook on low 9 to 10 hours (meat thermometer in the thickest part of the breast should read 170 degrees).
