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.

4 cups finely chopped zucchini

4 large eggs
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 cup shredded low-fat cheddar cheese
1 cup fully cooked cubed ham

Combine the zucchini and onion in a 9-inch microwave-safe pie plate. Cover and microwave on high 3-4 minutes until tender; drain well.

In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, salt and pepper using a whisk; stir in the cheese and ham.

Pour the egg mixture over the zucchini mixture. Microwave at approximately 70% power for 8 to 9 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
