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.

The small snack-size boxes of raisins are perfect to carry with you in case of low-blood sugar. When traveling carry a box in your purse, car, travel bag, etc. When diabetics eating routine is interupted, as it often is with travel, it is important to have something within reach if your blood sugar dips too low.
