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.

ZUCCHINI & TOMATO FRITTATA

2 tbsp olive or canola oil 

1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp thyme
6 whole green onions, chopped fine
1 large egg
3 large egg whites
1 large zucchini, halved lengthwise and cut into slices
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 can (16-oz) low-sodium diced tomatoes, drained*
1 cup shredded mozarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a nonstick 10-inch skillet that has an ovenproof handle, heat oil over medium heat about 1 minute. Add green onions and cook until soft. Be sure to cook uncovered. Add the garlic, zucchini, tomatoes, basil, thyme, and pepper. Mix and cover, continuing to cook 3 minutes.

In a small bowl whisk together egg & whites; blend into the skillet and sprinkle with cheese. Place in the oven uncovered; bake just until set - about 5 minutes or until golden.

*Or use equal amounts of fresh tomatoes, chopped.
