I’ve got to be honest, I like a bit of cooking. Have done ever since my mum and dad used to let me come into the kitchen and help them make dinner. Mainly I think this interest was based on how much I loved to eat (probably still partly is if I’m entirely honest). However, since I was diagnosed with diabetes, cooking took on a whole new level of importance for me.
What’s the one way you can be sure of what you’re putting in your body? Make it yourself of course. Processed and ready meals are, for the most part, shite. Particularly if your pancreas isn’t in a position to deal with the sugar spikes these carb heavy meals deliver. I like to cook meals that are low carb, high in protein and full of a good quantity and variance of veg. This all allows me to easily control my blood sugar around meal time with a minimal amount of insulin. Happy days right?
As I make diabetic friendly recipes that I REALLY enjoy I’ll add them here and hopefully some of you will find them as helpful as I do.
