    I was going to question the use of Splenda, but I realize that the F.D.A approved it's usage and we all know the F.D.A would never allow anything bad into the food supply or into the human body. :greedy::greedy::greedy::greedy::greedy::greedy::greedy::greedy:

    3 eggs
    2 zucchini, grated
    1/2 c. soy floour, flax four, whole wheat flour or stoneground cornmeal
    Add more flour or a little milk to make pancake consistency
    Add scallions, garlic, herbs or other to create differnt tastes

    Stir the eggs into the grated zucchini, then mix in the flour until all the lumps are gone. Fry the batter like pancakes with a bit of canola oil to keep it from sticking.
    Delicious topped with grated cheese.These are a great finger food and make a balanced meal.

    Veggies on the Grill

    I make these to go with brown rice or some meat main dish. Use a wok filled with holes specifically for the grill

    1 red pepper , cut into squares
    1 green pepper, cut into squares
    1 large sweet onion, cut into squares
    1/2 bag of fresh mushrooms (1 cup) sliced
    1 small zucchini, sliced but not peeled

    toss all in a bowl with a bit of olive oil and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Place in wok and place wok on the grill stir fry for about 20 mins. The grill gives those boring veggies a great taste!

    BB...very funny, but Hoax has started a thread that is needed by diabetics and people just wanting to eat healthier.

    I would probably be laughing harder if I wasn't feeling so deprived....
    No mocha frappucino for a month now. No meat, no sugar, no potato,
    no, eggs.....the list goes on.

    I've had to make major adjustments because of my sugar being so high and being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. It's not easy to plan a basically Vegan menu. Any help in that area is greatly appreciated by me.
