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 pkg (11-oz) refrigerated pizza dough
2 tbsp vinaigrette salad dressing
2 roma tomatoes, sliced thin
1 1/4 cups shredded cooked chicken breast
2 cups baby spinach leaves, chopped coarsely
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp freshly minced rosemary

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Spray a 15-inch jelly roll pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Unroll the pizza dough onto the prepared pan and spread to fit.  Bake for 5 minutes at 400 degrees.

Brush the dressing over the crust and spread the tomato slices over all.  Top with the chicken, spinach, cheese, and rosemary.

Bake at 400 degrees another 8 to 10 minutes until the crust is a golden brown.

Cut into rectangles to serve.
