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.

I have a hard time making myself eat eggs but can do them some when I have them mixed in with something else. This is a pretty good way for me to get them down and is a great recipe for diabetics.

  • 12 large eggs
  • 16 ounces sour cream
  • 12 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
  • ½ pound bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 1 cup broccoli, cooked and chopped
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • dash pepper

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Put eggs and sour cream in blender with salt and pepper. Blend well.
  • Put half the cheese into a 9X13 baking pan, followed by the bacon, the broccoli and then the rest of the cheese.
  • Pour the egg mixture over the whole thing.
  • Bake 45-55 minutes, until top is golden brown and toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
