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.

I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S NOT BUTTER! FAT FREE SPREAD: The main ingredient of this soft spread is water so it is not recommended for cooking but makes a great topping for toast, breads, baked potato, etc. Because of the high water content, this spread is not recommended for baking! 1 tbsp = 5 calories, 0 fat, 90 mg sodium
