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 1/2 cups bran cereal

1 1/4 cups lowfat milk
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 1/4 cups white whole-wheat flour
3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 cup Splenda granulated
1 tbsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line 10 muffin cups with paper liners or spray with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.

In a mixing bowl blend the cereal with the milk.  Stir in the egg whites and butter.  Blend in the flour, cocoa, Splenda, and baking soda, stirring just until blended.

Spoon the batter by heaping 1/2 cupful into each of the prepared baking cups.  Place in center of oven and bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until muffins are golden brown and a wooden toothpick inserted into the center of muffins comes out clean.

Allow muffins to cool for 5 minutes in the pan.  Remove muffins to cool completely on a wire rack.
