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.

Make your own tasty Almond Butter to use in place of peanut butter for a change.

3 cups slivered almonds, toasted
1 tsp salt

Place the almonds and salt in a food processor and process until the mixture has a buttery consistency.

Serve on whole-grain crackers, whole-grain bagels, rice cakes, use as a substitute for peanut butter in baking, etc.

May be stored in an airtight container or jar and kept in the refrigerator.
