Simple Diabetic Recipes

As a diabetic, are you constantly looking for simple diabetic recipes? Recipes for diabetics sometimes offer some very bland and tasteless menu ideas. Here are a couple of my favorite recipes for diabetics that taste great. Your non diabetic family members will love them, too!

First, let me say I am not a nutritionist nor medical professional of any kind. I am, however, diabetic having been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 1996. These recipes are a compilation of ones I have used since then.

Breakfast is one of our most important meals. Starting the day with a good breakfast gives us energy for the rest of the day. This is even more important if you are diabetic. Here then, are two of my favorite diabetic breakfast recipes.

FRUITY BRAN YOGURT

Pick any fresh fruit...a small banana, medium sized peach, half a cup of fresh blueberries... whatever you like best. Toss it into a blender with 1 cup skim or non fat milk, 1/2 cup of plain non fat yogurt, about a teaspoon of vanilla extract, a teaspoon or two of sugar and 1/4 cup of your favorite bran flakes. I like to add about 1/2 cup of ice. Blend until smooth and pour into an 8 ounce glass or goblet. Sprinkle with cinnamon and wow! What a great and quick starter.

QUICK FRENCH TOAST

You don't have to give up on pancakes or french toast when you have diabetes. Just make a few substitutions and a great diabetic breakfast recipe is soon on your table.

For this one whisk 2 eggs, 1/4 cup of orange juice and a dash of salt in a bowl. Into a separate flat pan you will need either 1/2 cup of crushed bran or corn flakes, or some crushed pecans. Or you can mix the two together for added taste. Melt two or three tablespoons of margarine in a frying pan. Dip slices of whole wheat bread into the egg mix and then into your crushed dry mix and line the frying pan. Cook until brown on both sides. Serve with fresh peaches or blueberries as a topping. Who says cooking for diabetics has to be boring?

These are just a couple of my favorites. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
