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!

Often we diabetics also have to watch our salt intake.  If you are like me, you think food without salt is bland!  I have found that Mrs. Dash products are excellent ways to flavor foods without salt.  Here is a favorite

4 large eggs
1/2 small onion, chopped
1 small red bell pepper, chopped
1 small garlic clove, minced
1 tbsp Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy Seasoning Blend
butter-flavored nonstick cooking spray

Spray a nonstick skillet with the cooking spray and heat over medium high heat.  Add the onion, bell pepper, and garlic; saute until tender.

Whisk the eggs with Mrs. Dash seasoning using a wire whisk in a medium mixing bowl.  Pour the eggs over the veggies, reduce the heat to low, and cook while stirring gently for about 4 minutes or until the eggs are set.
Yield: 3 to 4 servings.
