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 (1 lb) pork tenderloin
3 tbsp white whole-wheat flour
2 tsp lemon pepper
2 tsp olive oil
1/4 cup white cooking wine
1/4 cup lemon juice
very thin lemon slices for garnish, optional
4 tbsp drained capers for garnish, optional

Slice the tenderloin into 8 equal pieces and place pieces between sheets of plastic wrap.  Pound each piece until only 1/8-inch thick.  Dust lightly with the flour and sprinkle with the lemon pepper.

Pour the olive oil into a skillet over medium-high heat.  Quickly saute meat, about 4 minutes per side until golden brown.

Add the wine and lemon juice to the skillet; shake skillet gently and cook 2 minutes until the sauce is slightly thickened.

Garnish with the lemon slices and capers to serve.
