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.

Make your own popsicles that are sugar-free, do not melt easily and you can choose your own flavors. Use popsicle cups or make in small paper cups with a popsicle stick.

1 pkg (4-serving size) sugar-free gelatin, your flavor choice
1 pkg (2-qt size) sugar-free drink mix
1 cup boiling water
7 cups cold water

In a 2-quart pitcher dissolve gelatin in 1 cup hot water; stir to completely dissolve. Add the drink mix powder; stir to dissolve. Add the cold water. Stir mixture to blend then pour into popsicle cups. Freeze until solid.
