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.

1 head lettuce, broken up
1 head cauliflower, broken up
1 large purple onion, sliced thin
1 box frozen peas, thawed
1 lb bacon, fried, drained, crumbled
1 1/2 cups low-fat mayonnaise (I use mayo made with olive oil)
1/4 cup Splenda Granulated
6-oz can Parmesan cheese

Mix the Splenda and mayonnaise together; set aside.

Layer the ingredients, in the order listed above, in a large bowl or an oblong glass baking dish.

Spread the mayonnaise mixture over the top of the salad and sprinkle the cheese overall.

Cover salad and let set overnight.

Toss before serving.
