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!

You should eat something lite before your morning walk, workout, etc. Eating a small amount of something such as yogurt or half a piece of fruit lets your body know you have broken the night's fast. This will help to reduce your early morning hormone levels that raise your blood sugar.
