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.

Do you need a portable sandwich for those busy times?   Try this recipe.  This is okay for breakfast on the run, too.

1 Whole-wheat Pita, halved
1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese
1 small banana, sliced
4-5 walnut halves, chopped

Mix the cottage cheese, banana, and chopped walnuts together.  Divide mixture and use half to stuff each half of the pita pocket.

Approximately 46 g carbs and 21 g protein; a very good combination for a diabetic.
