I have chosen this name for this blog because it truly states my story. I am a type II diabetic who most certainly enjoys food. When I was diagnosed with diabetes several years ago, my blood sugar level was over 400. With some oral medications, a lot of research and some trial and error, I have found that unlike my ancestors I truly can continue to enjoy food. I hope this blog will help you to also enjoy food and be healthy. Some recipes are my originals and some I have collected. Everyone reacts different to various foods. Check your blood sugar readings so you will know whether or not a recipe works for you!

The meal loaf has no high-carb filler as most do which makes it especially good for diabetics.

2 lb ground sirloin
4 eggs
2 medium onions, chopped
2 cups tomato juice
2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Put the eggs in a large mixing bowl and beat well. Add the ground sirloin, onions, salt, pepper, and tomato juice. Using your hands, mix together well. Form into a loaf in a baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours or until browned and cooked through.
