Hypoglycemia, blog award and other stuff

About a month ago I was diagnosed as hypoglycemic which in layman’s terms means that I can’t go more than 2 hours without eating on account of low blood sugar. Diabetes is very common in my family and I have to be mindful of what I eat, especially now being a hypoglycemic ‘cause if I don’t I might end up being diabetic . It’s not all bad [I might finally lose the weight] but I can’t have the same quantities of dinner as I used to. It’s a lifestyle change, but if I keep to my diet everything will be fine. Now all I need to do is adapt my nutricionist’s diet to vegetarianism. Speaking of which, I found this amazing-tasting sweet potato burger recipe on Pinterest [as usual], I did some alterations and the end product was simply delish! If you want the original recipe click here, but scroll down for my take on the burger.

yummy time!

Ingredients:

1 medium size sweet potato

1 tsp of garlic salt

½ tsp of parsley

2 tbsp of flour

½ tbsp butter

3 tbsp parmesan cheese

Bread crumbs

Directions: mash the sweet potato and add salt, parsley and flour. Combine the ingredients and add the butter and cheese. Form into two patties and cover in bread crumbs [I used cereal crumbs but you can use whatever you like]. Heat vegetable oil in a medium skillet and fry the patties for about 8 minutes on each side or until golden. Spread BBQ sauce over hamburger buns and top with your favorites [I chose lettuce, tomato and lots of advocado yum!]. Enjoy 🙂
