     November is National Diabetes Month and with one-third of Americans having diabetes or pre-diabetes, we've got some work to do.  Diabetes is a serious disease that can lead to many complications including blindness, amputation, kidney failure, dementia, stroke, heart disease and death.  We've been under the impression that diabetes is just something you will automatically develop if you have a genetic pre-disposition and that once you develop diabetes, you'll be on medication for the rest of your life.  The truth is this:  most cases of type 2 diabetes are completely avoidable and even if you already have type 2 diabetes, chances are it's reversible with personalized lifestyle and nutrition-related changes.  [Type 1 diabetes is caused by an autoimmune process and is a different story, but lifestyle and nutrition still remain very important in its treatment].

     Type 2 diabetes prevention and reversal requires change, which is hard....

This recipe is a little spicy and a little sweet - perfect combination!  

Ingredients:

1 lb chicken breasts, cubed

1 red onion, cut into chunks

1 yellow onion, cut into chunks

3 multi-colored bell peppers, cut into chunks

1/2 cup PALEOCHEF peach bbq sauce

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 tsp cumin

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1/2 tsp turmeric

1/2 tsp salt

Directions:

1. Mix the bbq sauce, olive oil, cumin, cayenne pepper, turmeric and salt in a large bowl.

2. Add the chicken, onions and bell peppers to the bowl and mix well.  Marinate in the fridge for at least 1 hour.

3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees (or these can be made on the grill).

4. Alternate the chicken, onions, and bell peppers on the skewers

5. Bake for 25 minutes, rotate the skewers and bake again for 15 minutes or until an internal temperature of 165 degrees is reached.

I complete this meal with a green vegetable and cauliflower rice.  It's great for dinner, but also can be reheated for lunch!
