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 lb lean ground chicken breast (read labels, no skin!)
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp Italian seasonings
dash of freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp canola oil

In a large bowl combine the ground chicken, mustard, and all seasonings.  Form mixture into 4 even-sized patties.

Heat the canola oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot.  Add the chicken patties and cook 8 to 10 minutes per side or until browned and firm when spatula is pressed on the center.
