A low-carb "lasagna" made with eggplant, ground beef, cheese, and tomato sauce.

The people at church usually hate the healthy food I cook, but this dish was demolished. Definitely a winner.

November 3 2007 day 23 – Baking while being diabetic

Today marks the last day of the weekly focus topic of Food in the Diabetes 365 project. The biggest challenge for a diabetic is food, because what a diabetic consumes directly and immediately impacts blood sugars. We are fortunate that we live in a time where we can continue to indulge in tasty treats while watching our carbs. The advent of sugar-free syrups, low carb. flours, low/non fat cream cheese and other healthy low fat and low carb. ingredients have made it easier for diabetics to concoct tasty treats that rival the original recipe.
I embarked on a baking spree today. I’m trying two new recipes. I’m experimenting with a low fat mocha cheesecake, and I’m also trying to concoct low carb. pumpkin cake. How did they turn out?I don’t know. The cheesecake just came out of the oven, and is cooling down before it goes into the refrigerator. The pumpkin cake is now in the oven, hopefully rising.
I’m just glad that I have the ability to procure the ingredients and try these recipes. Here’s the irony: It is cheaper to eat high carb., high fat foods than it is to lead a healthy lifestyle with a healthy diet. This is another sad aspect of diabetes. It is not a poor man’s disease.

There is no cure for diabetes, yet.

Veal w/ Asparagus & Mushrooms

Used the recipe for "Veal with Asparagus from Betty Crocker’s Low-Carb Lifestyle Cookbook — one of those sad, neglected cookbooks no-one has borrowed from the library since the low-carb craze died down.

Ingredients: veal scaloppini, asparagus, cremini mushrooms, garlic, shallots, thyme, white wine, olive oil.

While I had high hopes for this dish, we mostly just found it "okay." While the vegetables were perfect, the veal seemed overcooked and the whole dish was a bit bland. If I were to make this again, I would cook the veal less, double the garlic, shallots, and thyme and include liberal amounts of fresh ground salt and pepper. (I might also skip using veal and go with turkey or chicken cutlets).
