Diabetics and Me
There are two sides to every family – your Mom’s side and your Dad’s. In my family, my Mom’s side has longevity. For the most part, the Cochrane’s outlive the average. In fact, my Grandmother just passed away at the age of 98. The other side of my family is the Corliss side – the Corliss’s are fun people! We are blessed with a wicked sense of humor – my Aunt’s can make a sailor blush – not with raunchy humor, but hilarious family fun and the whole group is that way! Unfortunately longevity isn’t our strong-point. I take after the Corliss side.
As we age, I’ve seen things change. My Dad developed diabetes, then my Aunt Shirley and Uncle Bill, most recently my Aunt Barb was given a pre-diabetic health scare. My cousin Jenny is diabetic too. How does this relate to me? At my last physical my blood sugar tested at 101 and though that’s not in the “danger zone”, it certainly has been enough to make me stop and think about the choices I’m making in my life.
So….what I’m sharing with you today is, you’re going to see some changes on my website and blog. It’s time to change my life; make better food choices and eat proportionally. I bet there’s a lot of folks out there like me. I’m going to begin by developing a program to help those that live with diabetes have an arsenal of delicious, healthy recipes that fit within their dietary guidelines.
I hope this doesn’t scare you away from my blog, my goal is the exact opposite! My food and recipes will continue to be yummy and fun! It will be my job to analyze nutritional values before posting a recipe to make sure I’m offering you exceptional food choices!
I am not a dietician, nor do I profess to be an expert in nutrition, but I promise you this; I am making it my business to learn as much about diabetic healthy choices as possible and will pass my knowledge onto you! If you have any questions or concerns – I’m always available – just pop me a note; debra (at) bowl-me-over (dot) com. (p.s. I type my email this was because the spambots drive me crazy if I don’t! 🙂 )
