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 cup egg substitute (or 4 eggs)
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
2 slices Canadian bacon, diced into small pieces
1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
4 (7-inch) whole-wheat tortillas
1 cup baby spinach leaves

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Spray a 9-inch glass baking dish with butter-flavored nonstick cooking spray; set aside.

In a mixing bowl combine the egg substitute (or eggs), cheese, Canadian bacon, pepper sauce, and black pepper; combine well.  Pour the egg mixture into the prepared baking dish and bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes or until set.  Remove from oven.

Place the tortillas in the oven for approximately 1 minute until warm, soft, and pliable.

To assemble, cut the egg mixture into quarters.  Place 1 quarter onto the center of each tortilla.  Top with 1/4 of the spinach leaves.  Fold the bottom of the tortilla up to the center and fold the sides to the center enclosing the filling.  Serve immediately while still hot.
