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.

FYI - FAST FOOD VS COOKED AT HOME

Notice this title is Fast Food vs Cooked at Home, not Home Cooked!
If you follow my blogs at all, you know I am against grabbing fast food rather than more healthy cooking at home. However, here is an exception to my rule. Popping a Jimmy Dean's Sausage, Egg, and Cheese biscuit into your microwave or toaster oven will give you more fat than 2 1/2 McDonald’s Egg McMuffin sandwiches!
(And way too much of that is the no-no trans fat!)
