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.

A few tips on healthy eating
If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
Some low carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Replace sugar with splenda.
Many recipes that require sugar can be changed to make use of splenda instead. It doesn't weigh the same so you will need to experiment a little and it may not work for every recipe, but it does bake up nice once you get the measurements right.
(inlcudes lettuce, fennel, lima bean & chamomile)
The nutrients called 'flavonoids' which exist in these foods are thought by experts to have properties as anti-carcinogens.
Nutritionalists looking into the effects of flavonoids believe they may well also have numerous healthy benefits, amongst them, antiviral and anti-inflammatory capabilities.
A good number also help you lose weight, so should be included in every weight loss regime.
