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.

3 cans (13 to 14-oz each) condensed chicken broth

2 tbsp minced fresh parsley
1/2 tsp tarragon
1 tsp grated lemon peel
3 large eggs
1/3 cup lemon juice
2 cans (5-oz each) premium chunk white chicken, drained, shredded
1 cup cooked brown rice

In a medium saucepan, simmer the chicken broth with the parsley, tarragon, and lemon peel over medium heat for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile beat the eggs and lemon juice until light and frothy. Slowly beat in 1 cup of the hot broth then pour the mixture into the saucepan with remaining broth. Reduce the heat to low and add the chicken and rice. Stir constantly until the mixture thickens slightly, about 3 to 4 minutes. Do not boil the soup.
