How to Eat to Lose:
Foods are assigned to “green,” “yellow,” and “red” groups giving you an eating traffic light.
- You can eat as much of the green foods–such as fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and low-fat dairy products–as you like.
- The red group includes high-starch potatoes, breads, and convenience foods like processed cereals, snacks and cookies.
Many recipes designed for diabetics are suitable for people watching their glycemic index.
Crescent Pizza Pockets
* 1 (8 ounce) can Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
* 1/4 cup pizza sauce
* 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
* 1/2 cup sliced pepperoni
* 1 teaspoon grated Parmesan cheese
1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Unroll dough on cookie sheet and separate into 4 rectangles; press each into 6×4-inch rectangle, firmly pressing perforations to seal.
2. Spread 1 tablespoon pizza sauce on half of each rectangle to within 1 inch of edge. Sprinkle each with 3 tablespoons cheese; top with 6 slices pepperoni. Fold dough diagonally over filling; firmly press edges with fork to seal. Sprinkle each triangle with 1/4 teaspoon grated cheese. With fork, prick top of each to allow steam to escape.
3. Bake 13 to 15 minutes or until deep golden brown. Serve warm.
