WELCOME TO DIABETIC ENJOYING FOOD

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.

OATS AND NUTS ARE IMPORTANT TO DIABETICS

Oats and nuts should be major foods in diabetics meal plans. That is not to say you have to eat loads of either. Oats are easy to work into the diet through morning cereal, snack bars and mixes, etc. When you eat nuts, use the unsalted variety and do not smother them in candy coatings. Try to work a portion of both oats and nuts into you diet everyday.
