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.

3 tbsp Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb Blend, divided
1 lb boneless sirloin, cubed 1 1/2-in size
3 pieces gresh broccoli, approximately 3-inches long
1 medium orange, unpeeled, cut into 8 circular slices
1 tbsp finely grated ginger

Preheat grill or saute pan to medium heat.

Thread the sirloin cubes, orange slice, and broccoli onto 4 skewers (if using wooden skewers, soak in water first), alternating in the order listed. 

Sprinkle the ginger over the kabobs then roll each in 1 1/2 tablespoons of the herb blend.

Cook in the pan or on a grill (broiler may also be used) approximately 5 minutes on each side for medium done.

Remove from heat, sprinkle with the remaining herb blend and let meat rest for a couple of minutes before serving.

Note: Great served with or over brown rice.
