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.

4 eggs or 1 cup refrigerated egg substitute
1 tbsp low-fat milk
1 tbsp Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy Blend (or a similar product of your choice)
1/2 medium-size red bell pepper, finely chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
nonstick canola or olive oil spray

Spray a heavy nonstick skillet with the oil spray.

Break eggs into a medium bowl and whisk with the milk until fluffy; add the seasoning blend.

Saute the bell pepper and onion in the skillet over medium heat until softened.

Add the whisked eggs to the skillet and reduce heat to low.  Stir gently while cooking until the eggs are set; 3 to 4 minutes.
