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.

1 lb halibut (or salmon fillets)
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tbsp vinegar
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp oregano
dash of freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup low sodium chicken broth
1 green onion
1 oz grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Rinse the fish in cold water; drain and pat dry with paper towels. Place in a shallow baking dish; brush with the mustard.

In a small bowl whisk together the vinegar, lemon juice, oil, oregano, and pepper. Pour mixture over the halibut steaks. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.

Drain the marinade off the fish and discard.

Pour the chicken broth into the baking dish and top the fish with the chopped green onion and the Parmesan cheese.

Bake at 375 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
