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.

2 cups + 2 tbsp cold fat-free milk, divided
2 tbsp chunky peanut butter
1 cup thawed frozen sugar-free whipped topping
1 pkg (4 serving size) sugar-free chocolate instant pudding mix

Add the 2 tbsp of milk to the peanut butter and stir until well blended. Stir in the whipped topping; set aside.

Pour the two cups of milk into a medium mixing bowl; add the pudding mix. Beat with a wire whisk for two to three minutes until thickened.

Using half the pudding mixture, spoon into 6 parfait glasses, top with the peanut butter mixture. Use the remaining half of the pudding mixture to top the peanut butter mixture.

Refrigerate until serving time.

Before serving, top with an additional dollop of whipped topping and some chopped peanuts, if desired.
