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.

COLORFUL OVEN VEGETABLES

1/3 cup butter*
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
3 cups cauliflowerets
2 cups broccoli florets
6 medium carrots, julienned
3 small onions, quartered

Place butter in a shallow 3-qt baking dish; place in a 400 degree oven for 5 minutes or until melted. Stir the salt, pepper and thyme into the melted butter.

Add the vegetables to the butter mixture and toss to coat well. Cover and bake for 25-30 minutes or until crisp tender.

*For a healthier dish, use a flavored olive oil instead of the butter. There are many delicious flavors available.

Note: If using frozen vegetables, baking time will be less.

Yield: 12 servings
