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.

Remember that diabetics have to watch their portions. Only 1 slice a day, no cheating.

1 9-inch sugar-free unbaked pie shell
3 large eggs
1 1/4 cups Splenda Granulated
3 tbsp white whole-wheat flour
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup fat-free or low-fat buttermilk
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large mixer bowl, beat the eggs; add the Splenda, flour, nutmeg and cinnamon and mix well.  Beat in the buttermilk, butter, and vanilla; pour into the pastry shell.

Bake for 10 minutes at 400 degrees then reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees and bake another 35 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

Cool before cutting.

Garnish with some fresh fruit, if desired.

Leftovers should be refrigerated.
