Beth writes: "We think this recipe is delicious! My husband and I just began The Hallelujah Diet on June 30th of this year. The fact that my husband would agree to do this is a definite answer to prayer. He was diagnosed 'diabetic' a year ago. His father and all 8 of his father's brothers and sisters are diabetic. After less than a month on The Hallelujah Diet, my husband is seeing a reduction in his blood glucose readings. We are so excited!"
