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.

6 ( 1 1/2 lbs) boneless skinless chicken breast halves
6 slices Swiss cheese
3 tbsp white whole-wheat flour
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp butter
3/4 cup chicken broth
1/2 tsp dried oregano

Flatten chicken to 1/4-inch thickness. Place a cheese slice on each chicken piece and roll up jellyroll style.

In a shallow bowl or pie plate, combine the flour and pepper; roll chicken pieces in mixture to coat.

Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat, add chicken and cook until browned, about 10 minutes, turning to brown all sides.

Add the broth and oregano to the chicken in the skillet and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer 12-14 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
