Did you know that 1 carb serving is equal to 15 grams of carbohydrates? Important to know in case your nutritional information lists carb servings rather than straight carbs. Also it is important to know how many carb servings you are eating per meal. Most diabetic men can handle 4 to 5 carb servings per meal while most women should only have 3 to 4. If in doubt about your situation, ask your doctor.
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. 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.
