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 egg white
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1 tbsp finely chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp pepper
12 oz lean ground turkey

In a mixing bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix just until combined. Shape into four patties. Spray a skillet with nonstick cooking spray, add burgers and cook over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Serve on whole-wheat buns with your favorite condiments.
