Christmas is coming soon as well as New Year and I bet everyone knows what comes along with this holidays, of course; FOOD!
Although this dates are my favorite I have to point out that resisting the appetizing aroma of the turkey, the delicious smell of the pork and the tamales is kind of difficult, isn’t it? And I haven’t talk about the desserts such as Cakes, Flans, Apple salads etc.
This days are tough for people with diabetes specially for me! I like food remember? Still I’ve learned how to manage my sugar levels this dates and still enjoy a delicious food.
Preparing low carb food which is still delicious is always the plan in my family for this important days this helps avoiding those awkward moments were I know I won’t resist from tasting that delicious plate of food.
Tell me what plate you like the most or tell me what you eat in this holidays HOW DO YOU SURVIVE?!
REMEMBER TO E-MAIL ME YOUR STORY ABOUT DIABETES, IT MAY APPEAR INN MY WEBSITE! Just give it a try!!
Today my work had a potluck and coworkers kept going “come on in and eat”. I said it’s too hard looking at all that food sometimes. One of my good friends came in the lunch room and ate with me, saying it’s too crowded in the other room. So sweet!
Just like you and most here…Christmas is my favorite time of the year. So many festivities, Christmas carollings, beautiful lights and lanterns, wonderful gifts and most of all…food! In my household…Im the cook, the baker, the food specialist…I still serve the usual Christmas goodies like Ham, turkey, potato salad, fruit salad, morcon (its a native beef dish), and my Double chocolate cake! Uhuh…tons of carbs! I cook mostly for my family and close friends to enjoy. Most (if not all) knows Im diabetic. I also have relatives who are too. I guess we do avoid talking about “diabetes” during this season…Exept for occasional jokes and fooling around. And my family does know and trust me on how I manage my condition. Do I give in to the temptation? Yup…But I have the self control to eat in moderation. Then I get to exercise twice longer the day after…sucks!
