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.

REMEMBER, CALORIES DO COUNT!

Remember, calories do count. There is alot more to diabetic eating than eliminating or cutting back on sugar! Make it your goal to eat 3 meals daily that are around 400 calories each and 2 snacks, 1 in the morning and 1 midafternoon, of around 200 calories each. Yes, that is only 1600 calories a day. If you need more calories adjust proportionally. Do I do this everyday? The answer is no. But it is a goal that I often accomplish.
