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.

4 large firm tomatoes
1 carton (8-oz) egg substitute
1/2 tsp dried dill
4 tsp whole-grain bread crumbs

Cut the tops off the tomatoes and scoop out and save the pulp.  Chop approximately 1/3 of the pulp and discard remainder or save for another use.

Lightly spray a 1 1/2-quart microwavable bowl and add the egg substitute and dill; cover.  Microwave on high 2 to 3 minutes or until set but still slightly moist; stir halfway through cooking.

Stir the chopped pulp into the eggs.

Arrange the tomatoes on a large microwave-safe plate and spoon 1 teaspoon of the bread crumbs into each of the tomatoes.

Divide the egg mixture evenly among the tomatoes and cover.

Microwave on a turntable for 2 to 3 minutes or until heated through on high.

Top each tomato with a sprig of fresh dill, if desired.

Serve immediately.
