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.

Poultry is a good lean protein and a good source of necessary minerals.  It should be a part of a diabetic's healthy diet.  Having said that, let me add this; beware of ground poultry.  Read the fine print before you purchase packages of ground chicken or turkey!  They often contain skin which can really push the fat into an unhealthy level.  You don't have to avoid it, just beware of what you are buying!
