Now that the holiday season is upon us, there will be office parties, family gatherings and other opportunities for the goodies of the season to tempt us to eat them. Can't you just hear the cookies just saying "Eat me, I taste good?" Well for some of us a cookie won't change our blood sugars however, you still have to consider whether or not you should eat it.
Office party planners and family and friends may consider the vegans but they might not think about the diabetics. If you are a part of the party planning team, make sure you have foods and snacks for everyone. If you aren't, ask the office team, the family member or the friend who is considering a party to have foods diabetics can eat. If they aren't sure of what to provide, make suggestions. It is no fun being at a party with foods that will not benefit us as diabetics. If you are invited to a party, you can still eat the food and be happy. If you are not sure what will be served, eat before you leave home. You will arrive at the party full and you can have veggies or even a cookie provided your numbers are at a normal level. Remember Diabetes does not take vacations or skip the holidays. Peace and Love and have a Healthy, Happy, Holiday Season.
