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 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
1/2 cup almond meal
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp paprika

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray a glass baking dish with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.

Combine the almond meal, salt, pepper and paprika together in a resealable plastic bag. Add thighs, one at a time, to the bag and shake to coat. Place in a glass baking sheet.

Bake 25-30 minutes until chicken is cooked through and the juices run clear.
