Are you planning your Christmas meal yet? If not, I know you will be very soon. Many tables may see fish, roast, ham, turkey, even a combination of these entrees. The holidays are a food fest between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. Usually it’s the appetizers, sides and desserts that offer the most in calories, unhealthy fat, sodium and carbohydrates. It’s the time of year we gain the most weight, become sluggish and impact our glucose levels.
I frequently hear from diabetics, “I don’t want to give up potatoes.” I do remember that expected sense of loss because potatoes = comfort food. I’m here to tell you it’s a fallacy. When you consume healing foods, you feel better while stabilizing your glucose levels you work on improving your digestion to absorb needed vitamins and minerals.
I am thankful that God has given me the strength and perseverance to go against the odds reversing the effects of diabetes. Not only for me, but to help so many others who have been led down a path of ill health.
I am thankful that my time with my clients are short, but my friendship with them is for a lifetime.
I am thankful that my friends and family put up with me in my quest to make everyone healthy!
I am thankful for the many radio show hosts who allow me to spread the word that diabetes can be improved and reversed.
I decided to share two recipes. During the holidays we have visitors, so it’s a good idea to prep food and snacks in advance. Today, you have my cheesecake recipe and stuffed mushrooms.
Every year at holiday time, friends and family ask me to bring dessert. Who knew the diabetic – uh hum, “ex-diabetic” had the best dessert that everyone loves!
You will need to find the following ingredients before you start: blanched almond flour/meal and Xylitol.
I had the pleasure of once again being a guest on the Maggie Linton Show. Love her show, Maggie is great and lover her audience! I promised to share my fave recipes. This week is my homemade waffles. No leggo my eggo here…. everything is fresh!
To be honest, I have not tried making the waffles then freezing. So if someone tries it, please email me at [email protected] and let me know how it works out. I just store any leftover batter in the refrigerator.
