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 lean pork chops

1 medium yellow onion, sliced thin
1 1/4 cups water
1 tsp chicken-flavored bouillon granules
1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
3 medium apples, peeled and sliced
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Spray a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray or heat 2 teaspoons of canola oil and brown the pork chops in the pan with the onion.

In a small bowl combine the water, bouillon, and pepper, stirring well to dissolve all the bouillon. Add the mixture to the skillet with the pork chops and onion. Cover the skillet and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Skim off any fat.

Add the apple slices and the cinnamon to the skillet. Return lid to skillet and simmer for another 15 minutes. Serve hot.
