I’m beating diabetes one bite at a time!

Hi, I’m glad you’re here! I haven’t updated this blog in years but I was inspired recently (my doctor has allowed me to stop all diabetes medications on a trial run)  and so I plan on continuing to tell my story. I still have diabetes, but not as bad as my last post at the end of 2012 (where my AC1 was a crazy 11.7). As you can tell by some of the recipes, I didn’t always have the right facts about diabetes and often tread down the wrong path. After being on roller coaster diets for 7 years, I think I’m finally starting to figure this thing out. Stay tuned!
