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 pkg (8-oz) fat-free or low-fat cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup light mayonnaise
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cup chopped pecans
8 to 10 slices deli ham

Beat the cream cheese, mayonnaise and garlic in a bowl until smooth; stir in the pecans.

Lay out the ham slices and spread about 3 tablespoonfuls of the cream cheese mixture on each slice. Roll slices up tightly, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Cut rolls into bite-size pieces.
