WELCOME TO DIABETIC ENJOYING FOOD

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! And feel free to take a recipe and adjust it to suit your needs.

EXERCISE 150 MINUTES PER WEEK

At least 150 minutes of exercise per week could cut your chances of becoming a diabetic by up to 50%. For those of us who already have it, exercise can reduce our risk of serious complications. Think about it. 150 divided by 7 = a little over 20 minutes of exercise per day. You can do it and so can I!
