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.

2 chicken breasts (deli or KFC, etc okay), broken or shredded into small pieces
1 head lettuce, broken
1 cup red grapes, halved
Low-fat mayonnaise

Toss the chicken, lettuce, and grapes with just enough mayo to moisten. Serve with a crusty whole-grain bread, if desired.
