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 salmon steaks (about 3-oz each)
Vegetable oil cooking spray
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp dried whole dillweed
1/2 tsp dried parsley flakes
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Rinse salmon thoroughly with water and pat dry with paper toweling. Spray a shallow baking pan with vegetable oil spray. Place steaks in the prepared pan. Brush steaks with the lemon juice. Sprinkle the dill weed, parsley, and pepper evenly over the salmon steaks. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 35 minutes or until salmon flakes easily when tested with a fork.
