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.

For a light dessert serve this creamy custard in individual dessert dishes garnished with a handful of fresh berries.

3 cups cold low-fat milk
1 pkg (4-serving size) Vanilla-flavored sugar-free instant pudding mix
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon (remember cinnamon is a blood sugar stabilizer)

Pour milk into a large bowl; add pudding mix and cinnamon. Beat with a wire whisk for 2 minutes until thickened.

Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve then top with the berries, if using.
