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.

2 slices turkey bacon
1/4 cup egg substitute
1 whole-wheat English muffin
1 slice low-fat cheese
Dash of hot sauce, if desired

Cook the bacon in microwave according to the package directions.

Spray a small pan with nonstick cooking spray and set over medium-low heat.  Cook the egg substitute until set.  Flip and cook other side for about 30 seconds.  (Sprinkle with a dash of salt and of pepper, if desired.) 

Toast the muffin, if desired.

Place the egg on the bottom of the muffin and add a dash of hot sauce if using, top with the cheese slice and the bacon.  Add the top of the muffin to make breakfast sandwich.
