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.

4 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1 medium banana, sliced
1 carton (6-oz) vanilla low-fat yogurt
1 cup ice cubes
1 kiwi, peeled and sliced for garnish

Combine the strawberries, banana slices, and yogurt in blender.  Cover and blend until smooth. 

With the blender still running, add the ice cubes one at a time through the hole in the lid - do not remove the lid to do this!

Pour into glasses and garnish each with a slice of kiwi

Yield: 4 cups
