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.

SMOKED TURKEY SALAD SANDWICHES

1/4 cup olive oil mayonnaise
1/4 cup fat-free plain yogurt
1/4 cup dill relish
2 cups chopped deli smoked turkey breast
1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
4 whole-grain sandwich rolls or whole-grain sandwich thins
4 lettuce leaves
1 medium tomato, sliced
In a large mixing bowl combine the mayonnaise and yogurt. Stir in the relish. Add the turkey and celery; toss to combine the mixture well.

Divide the mixture between the 4 sandwich rolls and add a lettuce leaf and tomato slices to each sandwich.

If you want to avoid using bread, wrap in large lettuce leaves for a sandwich wrap.
