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 is a recipe I got from another blogger - information is shown below.
1 Cauliflower Head, cut into florets
3 Cloves Garlic, chopped
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
Lemon Juice, to taste*
Cayenne Pepper, to taste
Salt, to taste
Mozzarella Cheese*
Fresh Parsley, if you have it
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1. Cut cauliflower into florets and put in a large bowl.
2. Cut or chop garlic into very small pieces.
3. Cover with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper, stirring well.
4. Put all into a buttered casserole, in a single layer.
5. Bake for about 30 minutes.
At this point, you have a delicious alkaline, low-carb dish. Adding the lemon juice will help with alkalinity. If you are not concerned about adding more acid to your system, stir in a bit of Mozzarella as soon as this comes out of the oven.
Serve Immediately.
