Today I shared about the initiative from the ADA called America Cooks to Stop Diabetes. Here is one of the first day items they posted. Great tips to help you adjust your favorite recipes to be more diabetic friendly. And if your family is like mine, they may not even notice some of the changes.

That is the real trick. Most of them are not hard. Cooking for diabetes is not as complicated as many people think.

I've had lots of people tell me that once they were diagnosed with diabetes, everyone in their family started eating a healthier diet. Thanks for posting these tips on how to enjoy great-tasting, healthy food. ~Lynn @Glucerna

It's true. My husband's cholesterol dropped and so did his triglycerides. He's back on a junk food track now, so I am sure that will go back up. But if he eats what I cook, he does better health wise, we all do.

Women are often the 'nutrition gatekeepers' for their families since we're typically the ones who do the bulk of the grocery shopping, meal planning and cooking. Hopefully your husband will keep eating your healthy, and I bet delicious, cooking. ~Lynn @Glucerna
