Preparing meals for a partner with diabetes is a bit more challenging than it looks. However, when I got down to it, I discovered ideas in my own home. These are some favored recipes.
Here are a few of his favorites:
EASY BANANA AND ORANGE PARFAIT
- 1 packet of lite Orange Jello
- 2 cups of Vanilla yogurt
- ½ teaspoon of vanilla
- 2 teaspoons of Splenda
- 1 banana
- 1/8 cup of lite cream cheese
Prepare the jello as instructed by the packets instructions. Monitor it closely. When it is almost done, put in your sliced bananas which you should have previously cut. Stir gently. If this is done well, your bananas should be totally covered in the jello. Place in the refrigerator till it sets.
In a separate bowl, mix ½ teaspoon of vanilla, 2 teaspoons of Splenda, and 2 cups of Vanilla yogurt. Set the mixture aside separately in the refrigerator.
Before it is time to eat, put the parfait together. Make use of parfait glasses to give your parfait a polished look. Place a scoop-full of your yogurt and Splenda mixture in the glass then place a scoop of the jello. Continue to layer the desert until the glass is filled.
If you are out to experiment, you may try various flavors. However, my husband likes this mixture best.
FAUX APPLE CASSEROLE
- Faux apple crisp
- 3 apples (large size)
- Sprouted wheat bread (I make use of 2 slices of cinnamon raisin from the local health food store. They need to be frozen before time.)
- 9 inches casserole dish
Firstly, you need to coat or spray your dish with a non-stick mixture. You will also need to preheat your oven to 375F.
When that is done, slice your peeled and cored apples thinly into your dish. Sprinkle the slices with cinnamon to your taste.
Take out your frozen bread and blend to crumbs with a blender. You will need to make use of a spoon to evenly distribute the blended bread on the apples. Ensure that some crumbs are placed beneath the bread.
Place in the oven and but do not cover while you bake for 40 minutes.
