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.

IT'S IN THE EYES OF THE BEHOLDER

The eyes are the window to the brain. You can trick your mind into thinking you are eating more simply by using a smaller size plate. Forget the huge dinner plates and go for the smaller ones. Also, cut your food into smaller pieces and spread the food out on the plate. Suddenly your mind will believe you have more food than you actually do. Put these tips into practice daily and you will be surprised how quickly you become adjusted to eating less.
