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.

To all the readers and followers of Diabetic Enjoying Food,

I wish you a very Merry Christmas or a special time during whatever you celebrate at this season.  I am a Christian so I say, "Merry Christmas" to you from the bottom of my heart.  May you have a very special and healthy day with your family and friends as we celebrate the birth of Jesus.  So here is a Texas Merry Christmas to you all.
