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 (4-oz each) skinless salmon fillets
1/3 cup lite creamy Caesar salad dressing, divided
8 cups tightly packed torn romaine lettuce
1/2 cup seasoned whole-grain croutons
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Very lightly oil the bottom of a square baking dish.

Place the fish, in a single layer, in the prepared baking dish. Brush with 2 tablespoons of the Caesar dressing. Bake at 375 degrees 15 to 17 minutes or until salmon flakes easily with a fork.

Toss the lettuce and croutons together with the remaining Caesar dressing. Divide lettuce equally onto 4 serving plates. Top each salad with a piece of salmon and sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese.
