 I found this recipe in “Kids, Food, & Diabetes”  Author is Gloria
 Loring  ISBN 0-8092-4956-1
 
 I am not sure if this book is still in print, but for anyone that is a
 diabetic whether it be a child or adult, Ms Loring has us given some
 very very good recipes.  Althought I am not a soup opera fan, she and
 her ex-husband Alan Thicke (Canadian) are parents of a diabetic child.
