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.

If at all possible, a diabetic should always take the stairs rather than an elevator or escalator.  One of the keys to diabetic exercise is to make it a part of your everyday life.  While that doesn't have to mean an hour a day at the gym, it does mean you should find the simple ways to get exercise.  Stairs are a very good way to do that.
