My husband is diabetic and has asked that I get us back on a healthier diet. I have to agree. We have fallen off the low glycemic bandwagon lately. So I will be mixing things up a bit, adding more diabetic-friendly dishes to my menu and this blog.
After a night of trying not to eat all of the Halloween candy, I decided to make this very simple and tasty frittata – which is like a crustless quiche – filled with turkey sausage, bell peppers, onion and egg substitute instead of whole eggs.
