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 is from Diabetic Connect.  I don't often post their recipes as I don't find them to always be what I consider either sugar-free or good for you but I believe this one will work for most diabetics.  Thanks to my friend Patti for posting this.

Creamy, chocolatey, and delicious, this pie will quickly become a family favorite. And with only 10g of carbs per slice, you can enjoy without feeling diet guilt.
