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.

1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tbsp finely chopped parsley
1 small garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp oregano leaves, chopped (1/4 tsp dried oregano)

Sprinkle the salt evenly over the fish and place them in a large shallow pan.

Combine the bouillon, vinegar, parsley, garlic, and oregano in a small bowl and pour over the fish. Marinate in refrigerator for 2 hours.

Preheat broiler.

Place the fish on a rack on broiler pan about 4-inches from the heat. Broil 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Baste with marinate every couple of minutes while broiling, turning once.
