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.

Sprinkle the Cajun seasoning on both sides of the fish fillets.

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add fish (2 at a time if necessary); cook until lightly browned (approximately 3 minutes), turn and repeat on other side. Fish is done when just opaque.

Combine the salsa and cilantro; and place atop the fish for serving.
