Keep Your Blood Sugar Low

Here's how:
1.The big secret is oatmeal, nuts and honey. When these are combined you have something that tastes good and will keep your blood sugar under control.

2. Potatoes send blood sugar through the roof. Slice or dice your potatoes and rinse them 3 times or until the water is clear.  We let them sit for a bit to make sure they are completely rinsed. Cook as normal. This works.

Here are some things you can enjoy eating while keeping sugar low:

Apple Crisp (Deborah eats this every morning for breakfast)
  • green or red apples, peeled and cored (4)
  • lemon juice (3 tbsp.)
  • cinnamon (1 tsp.)
  • unrefined or whole (not quick) oats (1 1/2 cups)
  • finely chopped walnuts (3/4 cup)
  • honey (1/2 cup)
  • vanilla extract (1 tsp.)
  • salt (1/4 tsp.)

1.    Slice apples thinly and spread in a 9"×9" baking dish. Sprinkle with lemon juice, sugar, and cinnamon. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2.    Combine oats, walnuts, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt in a bowl.

3.    Stir to mix, then spread evenly over apples.

4.    Bake until apples are tender when pierced with a knife, about 35 minutes. Let stand 5-10 minutes before serving. MMMMMM (From PCRM website)
