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.

8 large eggs
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried onion flakes
1/2 tsp hot sauce, optional
1 tbsp butter
1 medium tomato, chopped
1/3 cup finely chopped lean cooked ham

In a mixing bowl, using a fork, beat the eggs, oregano, basil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion flakes, and hot sauce only until blended.

Melt the butter in a medium nonstick skillet or omelet pan.  Add the above mixture to the pan.  As omelet cooks gently lift the edges of the omelet with a spatula, tilting pan so uncooked mixture flows under the cooked mixture.  Continue until the eggs are set.

Gently loosen the omelet with a large spatula and slide onto serving plate.

To serve, divide the omelet into 4 to 5 equal portions and serve while hot.
