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!

1 lb Velveeta Cheese Product, cut-up
1 can (10-oz) diced tomatoes with green chilies, drained
1 pkg (6-oz) Fully Cooked Southwestern Seasoned or Grilled Chicken Breast Strips, cut-up
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1 tsp ground cumin, optional

Mix all ingredients in a large microwavable bowl. Microwave on high for 6 to 7 minutes or until cheese is melted, stirring every 3 minutes.

Serve with baked tortilla chips or assorted cut-up vegetables.

Note: Adding chicken to this type of cheese dip makes it better for diabetics. When you are going to a party and you are asked to bring a dish, bring this one. Then you will know there is a cheese dip that is healthier for you but suitable for everyone.
