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.

VEGETABLE QUESADILLAS

1/2 lb fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 medium zucchini, sliced
1/2 cup sliced green onions
2 cans whole kernel corn, drained
2 medium tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 tsp dried basil
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
6 8-in flour tortillas
2 cups shredded reduced-fat cheddar/Monterrey Jack cheese blend
3/4 cup your favorite salsa
fat-free sour cream

Coat a large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Add the mushrooms, zucchini, and green onions to the skillet and saute until tender. Add the corn, tomatoes, basil, salt, and black pepper; cook another 2 to 3 minutes until heated through. With a slotted spoon, spoon the filling evenly over 1/2 of each tortilla. Sprinkle the cheese over the veggies and fold the tortilla over. Lightly spray the tops of each tortilla with the nonstick cooking spray. Bake, uncovered for 10 to 12 minutes at 400 degrees, or until golden brown. Serve with the salsa and sour cream.
