Thanksgiving Is Almost Here…Posted by in Diabetes Friendly Food
Thanksgiving is a great time to count our blessings. I try to practice an “attitude of gratitude” year round, but Thanksgiving serves as a nice reminder to slow down, enjoy and focus on the important things.
Holidays at most homes focus a lot on food and that can be especially challenging for anyone with diabetes. If you are looking for low sugar, low carb recipes, the internet is a great source. We found a great Pumpkin Pie recipe worthy of sharing this morning. If you have any favorite recipes you would like to share, you are welcome to share them here as a comment.
