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.

According to a recent report from the United States Department of Agriculture, the average amount of cholesterol in an American egg has dropped in the last decade. Eggs tested from around the country show 14% less cholesterol than when last tested in 2002. The tests also showed a 64% increase in the amount of vitamin D from the same time period. It is believed these changes can be credited to the differences in hen feed.
