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.

1/2 cup unpopped popcorn
butter-flavored cooking spray
1 tbsp curry powder
2 tsp Splenda granulated
1 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp salt
pinch of cayenne

Combine the curry powder, Splenda, turmeric, salt, and cayenne and keep in an airtight container.  This mixture will keep for up to a year.

Pop the popcorn in an air corn popper; place in a very large bowl for tossing with the seasoning.

Coat the popcorn with the butter-flavored spray then toss in spice mixture to coat.
