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!

You can replace flour and sugar with protein and potassium when you make these simple pancakes using only egg and banana.

1 large egg
1 large banana

In a small bowl, peel and slice the banana.

Mash banana and beat in the egg to combine well.

Spray a medium skillet with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Pour batter onto skillet, one-fourth cup at a time.  Cook until browned, turn and cook until browned on both sides.

May eat as is, use instead of bread for a breakfast sandwich, or enjoy with some sugar-free syrup.

Yield: 3 pancakes

File photo. In my opinion these pancakes with not fluff up as much as in this picture.
