Like "I am a normal person with diabetes. I can eat some of the same things I was eating prior to being diagnosed only I eat it differently. I eat fresh or frozen veggies, beef, poultry, and pork and fish now and then. I also eat a sweet treat when I want one. Instead of looking first at the cost read the label. Not everything is diabetic friendly. If it says sugar free, don't just go by the label, read the ingredients. As Steve says, eat as if your life depends on it. "
