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 1/2 cups cold fat-free milk
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon*
1 pkg (4-serving size) vanilla-flavored sugar-free instant pudding mix

In a bowl, combine the milk, applesauce, and cinnamon; add the dry pudding mix.

Beat the mixture slowly on the lowest speed of electric mixer until well blended, approximately 2 to 3 minutes.

Pour mixture into 4 individual dessert dishes and let set 5 to 10 minutes or until firm.

Garnish with a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.

May use as little as a pinch of cinnamon to suit your taste. But remember, cinnamon is a blood sugar stabilizer.
