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.

Sweet Creamy Cole Slaw

Made this the other day and Dustin, Steve, and I all enjoyed it.  I'm sure you could make your own substitions and still have a tasty dish.

1 bag (12-14 oz) slaw mix
1/4 cup Splenda granulated
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup milk
1/4 tsp celery seed, optional

Pour the slaw mix into a mixing bowl and sprinkle the Splenda overall.  Combine the mayonnaise with the milk and add to the slaw mix.  Toss together with a silicone spatula to coat the mixture well.  Sprinkle with the celery seed, if using.

Refrigerate until ready to serve.  Any leftovers should be refrigerated.
