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.

1 lb Swiss chard, trimmed, cleaned, coarsely chopped
2 slices bacon, cut-up
1 cup chopped yellow onion

Cook the bacon and onion together in a skillet over medium heat for about 8 minutes or until the onion is tender and golden brown.  Add the Swiss chard, cover and simmer for 2 minutes just until wilted.  Uncover and toss well.  Continue to cook for 10 minutes or until the chard is tender; stir occasionally while cooking.
