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.

Combine the eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix well. Pour the egg mixture over the layers.

In a small bowl combine the bread crumbs with the butter and sprinkle the crumbs over the casserole.
