If you have diabetes, cook for someone who has diabetes or just want to eat healthy, you’re in the right place. We firmly believe a diabetes diagnosis is not a dietary death sentence.
Good food is one of the great joys of life and it should be flavorful, satisfying, and nutritious!
We don’t believe that there is one “diabetes diet” that everybody has to follow, but we focus on recipes that are relatively low in carbohydrates and sodium because this fits the way many people living with diabetes prefer to eat. But great taste always comes first!
Diabetic Foodie was founded by Shelby Kinnaird in 2010. Shelby has lived with type 2 diabetes since 1999 and wanted to create a platform to share her love for great tasting food. In 2020, she decided to pursue her passions for cooking, teaching, and advocacy in a different way and handed over the reins of Diabetic Foodie.
Diabetic Foodie is now part of the Diabetes Strong family. Diabetes Strong was founded in 2015 by Christel & Tobias Oerum. Christel has been living with type 1 diabetes since 1997 and she shares Shelby’s love for great food.
We will continue to post great recipes on Diabetic Foodie that work for people living with any type of diabetes.
