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.

1/3 cup tub-style olive oil spread, softened
1/2 tsp snipped fresh parsley
1/2 tsp Cajun seasoning
dash of freshly ground black pepper

In a small bowl combine the olive oil spread, parsley, pepper, and Cajun seasoning until mixed well.  Cover and chill until ready to serve.  Serve with corn on the cob, other veggies, etc.

Suggestion:  On a sheet of waxed paper, roll the mixture into a 1-inch diameter roll.  Wrap in waxed paper and chill for about 4 hours until firm before slicing into serving slices.
