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 tbsp olive or coconut oil
1/2 lb sliced fresh mushrooms
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 lb fresh baby spinach leaves
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and garlic to the skillet and cook, stirring, until mushrooms are tender.

Add the spinach to the skillet and cook, stirring, over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes until the spinach has wilted but color is still bright.

Stir in the salt and pepper.

Sprinkle cheese overall.
