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.

Many years ago when Gladys Knight (and The Pips) was diagnosed with diabetes there were lots of interviews with her and lots of her recipes were made public.  Here is an old yellowed clipping I saved from a magazine. With diabetes in my family, I had already started paying attention to diabetic articles.  Found this the other day and thought it worth sharing.
