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.

1 tbsp canola oil
1 onion, sliced thin
1 pkg (10-oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
5 eggs, beaten
5 slices bacon, cooked crisp, drained, crumbled
3 cup shredded low-fat Cheddar cheese
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Cook the onion, stirring often, until tender.  Add the spinach to the onion and continue cooking until the excess liquid has evaporated; remove from the heat and set aside.

In a large bowl combine the eggs, bacon, cheese, salt, and pepper until well blended.  Stir in the spinach mixture.  Pour into a 9-inch deep pie plate that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.  Bake at 350 degrees 30 to 40 minutes or until set.  Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting to serve.
