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.

1 pie shell, unbaked
1 1/2 cups cooked and cubed ham
1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
1 cup frozen broccoli florets, thawed and drained thoroughly
4 large eggs
1 cup low-fat milk
1/4 tsp dried onion flakes
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Layer the ham, cheese, and broccoli in the pie shell in order given. In a medium bowl, combine all the remaining ingredients; beat well. Pour this mixture gently over the ham, cheese, and broccoli in the pie shell.

Bake quiche at 375 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting to serve.

Note: This is a great item to add to your brunch table.
