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.

2 large eggs
1 egg white
1/3 cup low-fat milk
1/2 tsp poppy seeds
2 tsp grated lemon rind
6 slices whole-wheat bread, halved diagonally
Canola oil

In a large shallow dish combine the eggs, egg white, milk, poppy seeds, and lemon rind.  Whisk mixture to combine.

Place the bread into the egg mixture in the dish, turn to coat both sides until egg mixture is absorbed.

Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with canola oil over medium heat.  Cook a couple of bread slices at a time, turning only once.  Cook approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side until lightly browned.  Repeat until all the bread has been cooked.

Serve topped with sugar-free or low-sugar topping of your choice.

Yield: 4 servings
