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.

1 egg
2 tsp water
2 tsp butter
dash of black pepper
1 English muffin (I use whole-wheat), split and toasted
1 slice low-fat American cheese
2 to 3 slices bacon, cooked

In a small bowl, mix the egg and water beating with a fork.  Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat; add the egg mixture and cook, while stirring, about 3 minutes until set.  Season to taste with the pepper.

Place one half of the  English muffin on the serving plate.  Top with the cheese slice, add the egg, and top with the bacon.  Place the other half over the bacon, making a sandwich.

Yield: 1 serving
