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.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except 2 tablespoons of the steak sauce. Mix well and press into an 8-inch loaf pan. Drizzle reserved steak sauce over the meatloaf.

Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes or until cooked thoroughly. Remove from oven and allow to stand 10 minutes before cutting to serve.
