It’s focus, from my very limited understanding is determining early stages of Diabetes, and the detection of Type 1 in adolescents. I recall when a friend, who is now in his 70’s was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when he was 20. That friend had not the diagnostic tools that available now.

Refried bean:

1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ancho chili powder, or other chili powder
1 (15-ounce) can pinto beans, preferably low-sodium, drained and rinsed or my leftovers black eyed beans
2/3 cup low-sodium chicken broth, plus more if needed/pareve broth
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic and chili powder and cook for 1 minute more. Stir in the beans and chicken/pareve broth and cook until the beans are warmed through, about 5 minutes. Mash the beans coarsely with the back of a wooden spoon, adding more  broth to moisten, if needed. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Stir in the cilantro.

Tonight, Thursday and Friday 6:30 A.M. much preparation is done:

I’ve included my menus for the holiday, and what remains to be done.

Before Night 1, Preparations are done for 3 days. I will have guests and so will have a 1 day holiday and serve friends from America. Theoretically, I just need to prepare for Shabat and one day of Yom Tov.

Friday night:

challa, salatim: tomatoes/parsley /cucumbers with tahina), spicy salmon and talapia, poached chicken with mushrooms. Friday prepare the fish and chicken so they are not dry,

Side dishes: Roasted vegetables: pepper, squash, pumpkin, mushrooms, cole slaw, vegetable lasagne, zucchini. cucumber salad, carrot apple muffins,

Dessert: cookies, compote with plums, cherries, blueberries, nectarine topped with coconut.
Alternate vegetarian: Spicy Tofu, mushrooms, spinach/tofu lasagne (to prepare on Friday).refried beans, cake melon, Frozen fruit

Shabas lunch, (Dairy) lasagna, fish, roasted vegetables, potato salad. Add roasted broccoli and cauliflower, celery, potato salad, fish, Friday leftovers, ricotta goat cheese cheese cake, cole slaw, couscous

Motze Shabat I plan a “modified” stir fry. Frozen edamame, broccoli, peas, 1/2 potato sliced thin, raw red pepper, onion, slivers of carrots, celery, tomatoes, mushrooms, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds. Adding sesame oil and the dish should be very satisfying to a diabetic:

1. Started with large saucepan ( you can use a wok) with bottom coated with olive oil

2. Added roasted garlic and some miso broth to the pan and added the raw vegetables Steamed a few minutes, and added the cooked vegetables

3. Added the remaining seeds At the table added sesame oil.

4. It had the starch of the potato, and the crunch of the seeds.

Sat night-meat  stew Lasagna( Pareve) fish, cole slaw,
Sunday day-Lasagna, fish, tofu cheese spinach quiche stew/chicken/cheese spinach kugel depends if we feel like eating dairy or meat

Sunday night – all of the above plus lentil
Soup, chicken

Add in cream Greek yogurt with cucumbers and dill‎

Another nice dish for before a holiday
