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.

1 packet dry onion soup mix
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tbsp low-fat milk
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1 tsp lemon juice
2 tbsp chopped chives + extra for garnish, if desired

Combine all ingredients in a bowl; stir with a wooden spoon or silicone spatula until well blended. Allow to stand about 3 hours before serving so the dip will thicken.
