What can I eat?: I am guessing that one of the burning questions on your mind if you have been newly diagnosed with this potentially debilitating condition is “what can I eat?” The author does an admirable job of explaining your options by incorporating a concept called carbohydrate counting.  She explains how the incorporation of a higher fiber, carbohydrate controlled meal plan can help you effectively bring your blood glucose within target range

What’s so special about this blog?: Diabetes is a broad and complex topic with many complicated aspects when it comes to self-management.  The author does a wonderful job with distilling  down the overwhelming amount of  information that is available today, to what would be the most relevant for you, the consumer. She provides a wealth of practical tools and guidelines including recipes and resources that will stand you in good stead, on your journey of diabetes self-management.  Furthermore, the clean and uncluttered blog design helps readers stay focused on the content.
