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 LASAGNA

1 pkg sugar free Oreos
6 tbsp butter, melted
1 pkg (8-oz) reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup Splenda Granular
2 tbsp cold low-fat milk
1 carton (12-oz) sugar-free frozen whipped topping, divided
1 pkg (4-serving size) instant chocolate pudding mix
3 1/4 cups cold low-fat milk
1 cup sugar-free chocolate chips

Crush cookies to fine crumbs; transfer to a large bowl. Add the 5 tablespoons of melted butter and stir with a fork until combined. Press mixture onto the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Refrigerate while you continue with the recipe.

Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until light and fluffy; add the 2 tablespoons of milk and the Splenda; mix well. Stir in 1 1/4 cups of the whipped topping; spread over the chilled crust.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the pudding mix and the 3 1/4 cups of milk until the pudding starts to thicken. Spread mixture over the cream cheese layer. Let set for 5 minutes for the pudding to firm up.

Spread the remaining whipped topping over the top of the lasagna; sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the top. Refrigerate 4 hours before cutting to serve.
