What is real food?
I explained this in a post here.
What is type 1 diabetes?
This is also contained in a post here.
Who is this blog written for?
This blog is written to me six months after my child was diagnosed. At that point I was starting to be less overwhelmed with diabetes, so I wanted to move back toward cooking the way I did before diabetes. However, the information on carbohydrate counting while baking and cooking from scratch seemed to be very slim. I’m hoping this blog can reach others at a similar point.
What is the purpose of this blog?
I want to provide information to people who enjoy cooking and want to cook from scratch, but need to count carbs in their homemade food. I’m thinking about how much a blog like this would have meant to me six months or a year after my toddler was diagnosed with diabetes. Although I had support from a wonderful nutritionist, I needed information on specific tricks that she couldn’t provide.
This blog also serves a secondary purpose. I’m using this blog as a means of self expression and creativity. When I come up with a new recipe that works, I want to share it.
Why don’t you include other nutrition information?
I only include carb totals because this is all that my family uses.
Why was my comment removed?
A post can be removed for bad language, being disrespectful of others, containing dangerous misinformation, or for any other reason.
