And Tomorrow…

Two months after my DM2 diagnosis, I will have my follow up checkup tomorrow.

So yeah, aside from the normal BMI as of today, I pray for great news tomorrow. Hopefully, no medications to take. Oh, fingers crossed!

And now I prepare to sleep. Haha!

And I wish I will wake up without much butterflies in my stomach for the checkup! 🙂

​Chicken in Lemon-Parsley Sauce

Meal choices stresses me a lot these days. The fact that I have to reduce my weight without dropping my sugar count is giving me a headache. Using Mr. Google, one that was handy as ever, I searched for recipes good for the diabetic and meals for those who wanted to lose weight.

I stumbled upon one recipe and thought I want to cook it. Unfortunately, I don’t have a griller neither a broiler at home. So I tried cooking it in a different manner using my gas stove.
Ingredients:

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 tbsp. white onion, minced

1 tbsp. soy sauce

¼ tsp cracked black pepper

1 tsp minced ginger

½ tsp paprika powder

½ tsp dried parsley leaves

½ kl chicken meat, skinless

¼ cup water

3 medium-sized kalamansi

Dijon mustard (substitute)
I was not able to find any available Dijon mustard at the supermarket, so I searched for a substitute.
Ingredients for the Dijon mustard substitute:

1 tbsp. mustard seeds

1 tsp water

½ tsp white vinegar

1 tbsp. mayo

1 pinch sugar
Mix all the ingredients in a pan. Cook for 20-30 minutes, or until the chicken meat is already cooked. Stir occasionally. After removing of pan from the fire, simmer for five minutes. Then serve!

Hubby was able to share this meal with his workmates, and he told me there were no violent reactions regarding the taste of the dish. Haha! It’s not the best dish, I guess, but it suits my taste. I love the combinations of spices in every bite.
This first experiment was a success, and I really hope the next recipes that I will make are both healthy and delicious. Well, let’s see what happens next, yes? 😉
