Welcome!

Welcome to Diabetic Foodie! This blog is for people who love food, love to cook and love to eat, but also just happen to be diabetic. We will provide recipes, tips and information on easy-to-use tools to make daily meal-planning as painless as possible.

Although, we can’t afford to have each recipe analyzed, nutritional information will be provided to the best of our ability. Sometimes we calculate this information by hand using Corinne T. Netzer’s Complete Book of Food Counts and package labels. Sometimes we use the nutritiondata.com web site. Sometimes we reprint recipes from other sources and simply relay the nutritional information they provide. These methods have allowed us to keep our own diabetes under control quite successfully.

If you have diabetes or any other insulin-resistant condition (PCOS, Syndrome X, etc.) or if you simply agree with our philosophy of eating and would like to write for Diabetic Foodie, please contact us at info@diabeticfoodie.com.

    Massiel – Has your doctor recommended seeing a Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) or nutritionist? That might be a good place to start. In the meantime, try to stop drinking soda and eating sweets (if you do). A diet full of veggies, lean protein (chicken, turkey, fish), whole grains, nuts, seeds, and fruits works for me. Follow the plate method – fill half your plate with non-starchy veggies, 1/4 with lean protein, and 1/4 with starchy veggies/whole grains. Eat a little dairy and fruit too. Start exercising if you don’t. Even a 10-minute walk after each meal with help. See if there’s any type of diabetes support group in your area – check with your local hospital/health department or see if there’s a DiabetesSisters meetup. Good luck!
