Type 3 Diabetes

Low Glycemic Food

My Hero is the common Green Bell Pepper. Stay with me on this because I want to tell the world about what I've discovered.

When I was diagnosed with Diabetes two years ago I thought my life was over. I have been careful my whole life with my eating choices. I never counted on the possibility of inheriting this disease. I still don't really know if I could have prevented this from happening if I could have been even more strict with my diet in the past. However, I went the medication route and did all I could to reverse my diabetes. I was allergic to most of the medicine that was prescribed for me, so I did a careful study on how to control the diabetes with food and exercise. I consider myself to be a Type 3 Diabetic. (Control with Food and Exercise.)

So far I've had a lot of success with controlling my blood sugar. I want to pass on a quick, simple and affordable recipe that works well for me.

Low Fat Cream Cheese Stuffed Pepper

2 ounces Low Fat Cream Cheese

1/2 Large Green Bell Pepper (washed, seeded and membranes removed)

4 Green, Pimento Stuffed Olives (what ever size you like)

One Bread Stick (optional)

Stuff the Pepper with the Cream Cheese, add a few green olives and then stuff yourself! This is a quick lunch or snack for me. I test my blood sugar two hours after I eat the stuffed pepper and the reading has always been good.

Until we meet again... Francesca27

      I am also diabetic and have inherited this disease (I would have preferred inheriting money, but that's life). I can attest to your findings on green peppers. I try to eat them as often as possible because I have my best blood sugar readings after eating green peppers. Thanks for the recipe.
