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.

This recipe makes the equivalent to 1 packet purchased dry onion soup mix.  You can make this even healthier by using sodium-free instant bouillon for a salt-free mix.

2 2/3 tbsp dried onion flakes
4 tsp beef instant bouillon powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp celery seed

Combine all ingredients and store in a plastic zip-top bag or an airtight container.  Use in recipes just as you would the purchased mix.
