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-oz fat-free sour cream

In a bowl combine the pudding mix and milk, stirring with a whisk until blended. Add the sour cream and whipped topping, mix gently to combine.

In a dish, layer vanilla wafers, banana slices and pudding mix. Crush two or three of the vanilla wafers and sprinkle over the top of the dish as a garnish.
