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 tbsp olive or canola oil
1 onion, chopped
1 can (4-oz) diced green chiles, drained
1 lb diced frozen hash brown potatoes
6-oz deli corned beef, diced
3 tbsp Taco seasoning mix
1/2 cup water
16-oz jar your favorite salsa
6 eggs

In a medium skillet, over medium heat, heat the oil until hot.  Add the onion and chiles; cook, stirring, 4 to 5 minutes until the onion is browned and the liquid has evaporated.

In a large skillet prepare the potatoes as directed on the package.  When potatoes are cooked through and beginning to brown, add the corned beef and taco seasoning; toss to coat well.  Stir in the water, add the onion and chiles and stir well to combine.

In a separate skillet fry eggs to suit your taste.  Place eggs atop hash and serve with the salsa.
Yield: 6 servings
Note: If you love potatoes, this is a good way to eat them.  The corned beef and egg help to balance them out.
