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.

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup lemon juice
21/2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Combine the lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce. Place chicken in the mixture and refrigerate 1 hour turning every 15 minutes.

Remove chicken from the marinade and discard marinade.

Grill chicken on hot grill or broil for about 6 minutes per side until cooked through and tender.

Garnish with fresh lemon slices, if desired.
