Diabetic Meat-Filled Dumplings Recipe
4 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cup water
1/2 lb ground round
2 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
1 tsp sherry
2 cup fresh chopped spinach or
1 cup frozen spinach thawed
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
1/4 cup finely minced water chestnut
2 green onions chopped
Mix flour and water. Add more water a teaspoon at a time until
dough cleans bowl. Turn it out on a floured board; knead smooth.
Wrap in plastic wrap, and set aside for 20 minutes.
Brown and drain ground beef of all fat. Wash and dry fresh
spinach, or dry frozen spinach. Combine with ground beef and
remaining ingredients. Mix well.
Form dough into a long roll 1 inch in diameter. Cut or break into
1 inch sections. With your hands or a large glass, flatten each
piece into a circle 3 inches in diameter. Place 1 TABLESPOON of
filling in the center of each circle. With a finger dipped in water,
dampen the edge of the circle. Fold the dough over the filling and
press to seal. Brush a nonstick frying pan with 1/2 teaspoon oil.
Place the dumplings in the pan and brown them on each side.
Add enough broth or water to come up to a third of the height of the
dumplingsl Cover pan tightly, and steam until water is all gone -
about 15 to 20 minutes. Serve the dumplings hot or cold with sherry
or vinegar for dipping.

Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
Some reduced carbohydrate diet tips:
* Use low carb chocolate for cookies and muffins.
If you have gone to the trouble of converting your most popular chocolate chip cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soy flour, you really don't want to mix in those high carbohydrate sugar-rich chocolate. Chop up a reduced carbohydrate chocolate bar into tiny pieces and use that in its place.
* Know what is in your food
Watch out for the food label that boasts to be 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the reverse of the can or package. Some are only slightly decreased and in some instances still higher than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are exactly the same.
Superfoods containing carotenes
(includes paprika, turnip greens and winter squash)
These natural foods are rich in carotenes (alpha and beta) believed to play a major part in minimizing the risk of cancer, spefically cancer of the stomach. Many are low in calories, so should be a part of every weight loss program.
