Did you know that November is Diabetes Awareness Month? I honestly had no idea. I am embarrassed to say that, but I just didn’t know. I have been very fortunate to not have diabetes touch my life, or anyone close to me. I recently met someone who has it, but he manages it very quietly, so you would never know. My friend Carolyn, from All Day I Dream About Food is my closest real connection to diabetes. She is constantly in the kitchen doing amazing things, making over the most decadent dish to make it diabetic friendly.
Today many of us are getting together to help spread the word about Diabetes. Did you know that 25.8 million people (adults and children) in the United States have diabetes. In 2010, 1.9 million new cases of diabetes were diagnosed in people 20 years of age and under. It is a wide spread disease that can affect anyone.
Today Carolyn challenged us to share a recipe that was gluten free, lower in carbs, and didn’t use any type of sugar. I came up with this Greek yogurt dip. It is a little spicy, and you can never go wrong with chili and lime together. Serve with veggies, or your favorite gluten free crackers for a super healthy snack. You can easily serve this at any party, and no one will ever know that you are serving something healthy!
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt, (I used nonfat)
- 2 tsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 jalapeno, , chopped (seeded for less heat)
- 1/2 lime, , juiced
- Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl, and mix until well combined.
