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 tsp canola oil
1 green bell pepper, diced into bite-size pieces
1/2 tsp oregano
2 cans (14-oz each) Healthy Choice Chili Beef Soup
1 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise, cut into slices
1 cup whole-grain uncooked elbow macaroni
1/2 cup frozen corn

Heat oil in a stockpot or Dutch oven and saute bell pepper with the oregano until crisp tender.

Stir the soup, zucchini, macaroni, and corn into the pot; bring mixture to a boil.  Reduce the heat and simmer for approximately 10 minutes or until the macaroni is tender.

Perfect for times when you need something quick.
