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.

CHOCOLATE CRUMB CRUST

A diabetic who has their blood sugar under control can enjoy dessert just like anyone else. It is all in the ingredients you use and in quatity you eat. If you make a pie, enjoy a piece of pie not half a pie.

1 1/4 cups sugar-free chocolate wafer cookie crumbs (I prefer sugar-free Oreo cookies)
2 tbsp Splenda Granulated
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 egg white

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a food processor, combine crumbs, Splenda, and butter; pulse until blended. Add the egg white and pulse until moistened.

Press the mixture  onto the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate.

Bake at 375 degrees 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before filling with your favorite sugar-free filling.
