*Note:

  • I am very specific about the bread to use for this recipe because this bread was recommended to us by health care professionals. It has 45 carbs for two slices. For this meal you will use only one slice of bread per person to ensure you will not go over your recommended allowance of carbs per meal (usually around 45 per meal)
  • As a diabetic it is important to keep a close eye on your intake of carbs. Bread can be an occasional treat. We all need some carbs. Whenever possible, the healthiest carbs are those that are low on the glycemic index. .
  • Please make sure you follow the guidelines and directions of your health care professional. These are recipes we eat at home with good results. They work for us.
  • As always, follow the guidelines given by your physician and dietician and ask them if you are in doubt about any changes in diet you may wish to make.
