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.

Salt and pepper the chicken breasts; dredge lightly in the flour.

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet; when hot add the chicken and cook on medium-high for 10 to 12 minutes or until cooked all the way through.  Remove chicken from pan and keep warm.

In the same skillet cook the broth with the lime juice, and lime zest until reduced by half.  Stir in the cream and heat through.
