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.

6 to 8 ounces skinless boneless chicken breasts, cute into bite-size pieces
1/3 cup mango chutney
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
4 cups mixed salad greens
1 cup peeled and chopped mango
thin sliced green onion for garnish, optional

Coat a medium nonstick skillet with cooking spray.  Place sprayed pan over medium-high heat; add the chicken.  Cook chicken while stirring for about 3 minutes or until cooked through.  Stir in the chutney, water, and Dijon mustard.  Continue cooking, stirring, just until hot.  Remove from heat and cool slightly.

Toss the salad greens and the chopped mango; arrange on serving plates.  Spoon the chicken mixture onto the greens.  If desired, garnish with the green onion.
