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.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In the oven, melt butter in a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Add the olive oil and stir to blend; set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine the egg, water and lemon juice.

In a shallow pan or dish, combine the flour, onion salt and pepper.

Coat the fish fillets with the flour mixture then dip in egg mixture. Roll in the bread crumbs. Place fillets in the baking dish, turning to coat with the butter/oil mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
