a recipie

My mom had sent me a cookbook for diabetics for christmas and I finally had made a recipie from it the other day. It turned out really good and my hubby loved it. Hope you enjoy it as well. I didn't have some of the low or no salt and low fat items, but it was just as good with the regular. :)

Pork Paprikash

Vegetable cooking spray (didn't have that, but used a little bit of butter)
1 1/2 pounds lean pork loin, cubed (used whole chops and was just as good)
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
1 cup canned no-salt-added chicken broth (didn't have, but water worked just as well)
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can reduced-fat, reduced-sodium cream of mushroom soup, undiluted (used regular soup)
2 teaspoons paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup low-fat sour cream (used regular)
3 cups cooked egg noodles (made rice and tasted great with this)
Chopped fresh parsley (optional)

1. Coat a largh nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium-high heat until hot. Add pork and onion; cook until pork is browned on all sides, stirring often. Add broth; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until pork is tender.

2. Add soup, paprika, and salt to skillet, stirring well; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in sour cream. Serve over cooked noodles; sprinkle with parsley, if desired.

re: a natural approach to diabetes
Much like newb, I am also a borderline diabetic who can thank PCOS. Because I have been seeing a reproductive specialist, I was sent to see a second specialist, who sent me to her diabetic counselor. With her help I have started a diet that incorporates a better balance of foods than I was previously getting. But even before this, I was always fond of ginger, garlic, cinnamon, and incorporated it into my diet for a long time.

My major problem is finding a happy medium between diet and exercise. Thanks for posting information about different herbs.
