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.

2 cans no salt added whole kernel corn, drained
1 small green bell pepper, chopped
1 small red bell pepper, chopped
2 tbsp finely chopped red onion
2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro, optional
1/4 cup Zesty Italian Salad Dressing (watch the sugar content)

Combine the corn, peppers, onion and cilantro, if using, in a bowl. Pour the salad dressing overall and toss to coat. Best when allowed to chill for 45-1 hour.

This salad is good for camping and picnics as there is no mayonnaise.
