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 not sit down and eat the whole dish of this dip. A little on a few pieces of fruit is fine for most diabetics. This is a way for you to enjoy a snack/appetizer with others. Remember, cinnamon is a blood sugar stabilizer.

Assorted fresh fruits of your choice, cut into bite-size chunks, pieces, etc
1 cup low-fat sour cream
2 teaspoons Splenda Brown Sugar Blend

Mix the sour cream and Splenda. Refrigerate 30 minutes to chill and flavors to blend. Serve with the fresh fruits.
