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 pkts sugar-free Hazelnut-flavored coffee creamer
1 cup thawed sugar-free nondairy whipped topping
3 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1 cup raspberries

Mix the coffee creamer with the nondairy whipped topping; set aside.

In a large bowl, toss the strawberries and raspberries together.  Place berries into individual dessert dishes and top each with a dollop of the flavored whipped topping.

Option: For a light, refreshing patriotic red, white, and blue dessert replace 1 cup of the strawberries with 1 cup of blueberries.
