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.

BAKED PARMESAN PORK CHOPS

This recipe was given to me by a friend. She credits it to Janet's Appalachian Kitchen. I have made a minor adjustment to make it diabetic-friendly.

Parmesan Baked Pork Chops 

4 boneless pork chops
1 T. olive oil
1 C. parmesan cheese
1 C. Italian bread crumbs (use whole-grain bread crumbs and mix in Italian seasoning)
1 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder

Nonstick olive oil cooking spray

On a plate combine the last 4 ingredients. Rub the pork chops with olive oil and then dip (coat) each one in the cheese mixture. Press the mixture over the pork chops to make sure they are well covered in it. Line a pan with tin foil and spray with cooking spray. Place the pork chops on the pan and bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.
