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.

FAKE OR SUGAR-FREE POWDERED SUGAR

Diabetics often come across recipes calling for powdered sugar. You can make your own substitute for powdered sugar that works very well in recipes. 

3/4 cup of Splenda Granular
2 tablespoons cornstarch

Place both ingredients in a blender and blend until it is a very fine powder. Use as you would powdered sugar.

0 grams of sugar and only 4 carbs per tablespoon.
