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.

2 cups low-fat cold milk
2 tbsp Splenda granulated
1 pkg (4-serving size) sugar-free instant chocolate fudge pudding mix

In a large bowl, combine all three ingredients; beat on lowest speed of electric mixer for 1 minute or just until blended.

Pour mixture into a shallow pan that is freezer-safe.  Freeze mixture until firm, at least 4 hours.

Remove from freezer and let stand 15 minutes before scooping to serve.
