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 tub (10-oz) Philadelphia Original Cooking Creme, divided
6 large eggs
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp butter
1 cup chopped green bell peppers
4 green onions, sliced
1/4 cup chopped smoked ham
1/2 cup shredded low-fat cheese

Reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking creme than whisk remaining creme with the egg and pepper until well blended.

Melt the butter in a 10-inch ovenproof skillet on medium heat. Add green peppers; cook and stir 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Stir in the egg mixture, onions, and ham; cover and cook on medium-low for 8 to 9 minutes or until the center is almost set.

Heat the broiler.

Uncover frittata and sprinkle with the shredded cheese. Broil 6-inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until the center is set and the cheese is melted.  Drizzle with the reserved cooking creme, if desired.

This Kraft foods recipe is a good choice for diabetics even with the cooking creme. The eggs and ham provide protein. In this one recipe you have dairy, veggies, and meat.
