Welcome back to Day 6 of Diabetes Blog Week 2012!
Instead of choosing the assigned topic for today’s post, Saturday’s Snapshots, I’m going to go with one of the wildcard topics, “Something Good to Eat:”
Something Good to Eat – Saturday 5/19: Inspired by DFeast Fridays share a favorite recipe with us. It can be healthy, or it can be a yummy indulgence. Extra points if you can include carb counts and other nutrition info!! If it’s not an original recipe, be sure to properly credit your source.
My husband and I have been having a lot of fun in the kitchen recently! He’s been really supportive of my recent kick in healthy eating, which has been awesome. We’ve been eating more and more fresh fruit and vegetables, which are easy on the bloodsugar. He’s a king of the grill and I love throwing veggies in a little olive oil on there.
I’ve also stared making some smoothies for breakfast in the morning. My favorite one right now uses Greek yogurt as the base and is really easy to whip up. I put a cup of fresh berries (usually chopped strawberries and a few blueberries) in the blender with 1/2 cup plain, fat free Greek yogurt and 1 cup of crushed ice. Blend until smooth and enjoy!
Trust me, it is as delicious as it looks!
