I recently tried a recipe for my friend that is diabetic .At first I was quite worried and I needed to find out what diabetic could eat and what they couldn't. I tried making enquirers and found a list of 17 items that are diabetic friendly.

 Here is the list I came up with.

1. apples

2. asparagus

3 avocados

4. blueberries

5. broccoli

6. carrots

7. cranberries

8. fish

9. flaxseed

10. garlic

11. melon

12. nuts

13. red onion

14. red peppers

15. spinach

16. tea

17. tomato

18. yogurt

19. olive oil

20. green chilies 

Reading through this list I was over the moon, as most of these items are my daily ingredients. So I made up this delicious meal.

1. 3-4 Tbls olive oil

2. 1/2 cup carrots .julienne

3. 1/2 cup red pepper, sliced

4. 2 Tbls garlic ,crushed

5. 1 large tomato cut in 1/4 's 

6. 1/2 bunch spinach, chopped

7. 100g almonds

8. 3 sticks asparagus, choppers

9. green chilies

10. 1/2 red onion , chopped

11. yogurt

`12. 800 g salmon cut in stripes

13. 1 kg wholewheat pasta

14. fresh coriander Chopped (garnish)

To prepare 

Heat half the olive oil and stir-fry the vegetable. Allow to cook of less then 2 minutes leaving the vegetable crunchy. Place aside

In another pan heat the rest of the oil . Add the garlic and chille for 1 minutes . Then add the Salmon stripes. Allow the salmon to cook through. 

Cook the pasta until soft .

Toss all the ingredients into the pasta.

Mix the fresh coriander and yogurt together . Drop a scoop on top of the meal, as a garnish. 

Now it was time for my friend to taste. Well it was a winner. He still can't believe that a diabetic can eat such tasty food.
