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 pkg (1.4-oz) sugar-free instant chocolate pudding mix
2 cups cold low-fat milk
1 tub (8-oz) sugar-free frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 sugar-free pie crust, baked or 1 reduced-fat graham cracker pie crust
1 pkg (1-oz) sugar-free white chocolate instant pudding mix

Beat chocolate pudding mix with 1 cup of the milk for 2 minutes with a wire whisk (mixture will be thick). Stir in half the whipped topping and spread in the prepared pie crust.

Repeat the process with the white chocolate pudding mix, remaining milk and whipped topping. Spread this mixture over the chocolate layer.

Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before cutting to serve.

Top each slice with a dollop of whipped cream or additional whipped topping, if desired, before serving. Garnish with additional graham cracker sprinkles and fresh berries, if desired.
