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.

3 cups low-fat dry powdered milk
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup Splenda granulated (or your favorite sugar substitute)

Put all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix together well. Place in air-tight jars or canisters for gift-giving or personal use.

Directions for use: Use 6 level tablespoons to each cup of hot water. For a richer drink add some whipped cream (if that won't mess up your blood sugar) and sprinkle with cinnamon. Or add a cinnamon stick for stirring.

Note: Cinnamon is a great blood sugar stabilizer.
