Looking for a new family favorite? This tasty and alternative hominy dish will have them singing in no time!
My sisters and I grew up in a diabetic household when the options for diabetics were severely limited.Poor Dad had to endure saccharin in his coffee and avoid really interesting foods where calories and carbs ran rampant.On the plus side, we grew up learning about label reading and nutritional content long before it was the norm and it has served us well.
As the grandparents of a juvenile diabetic, it is super important that we provide balanced and nutritious meals for Noah.Hominy, at a glycemic index of 57, fat at 9 grams, carbohydrates of 66 and 7 grams of proteinis both acceptable and delicious!
You simply cannot go wrong with this easy to a make dish that seems to please everyone!It is a lovely compliment to ham dishes and goes great with scrambled eggs in the morning.Enjoy it all year long!
