Issue 18 of Sweet Life
If there’s one thing I look forward to every day, it’s eating. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are three of my favourite times of day and I’m so grateful diabetes hasn’t stopped me from enjoying food.
What it has done is given me a new awareness of food – and of every mouthful I eat. I look at this as a positive thing, because we should all be paying attention to what we eat and how it makes us feel… As diabetics, we just get a number to tell us if our medication and our food are working together!
This issue, we’ve covered all the various aspects of food and diabetes, from what to eat to where to get it. In our cover story, you’ll meet Alliyah Geldenhuys and Annora Mostert, who are passionate about providing the right ingredients for people with diabetes and anyone looking for a healthy diet at their shop, Anja’s Pantry. You’ll also find out exactly how to count carbs in our Just Diagnosed section, and get delicious inspiration for winter meals with our food feature.
Next issue we look at motivation… One of the hardest things to keep going when you’re living with a chronic condition every day. If you have any questions or comments that you’d like us to cover about diabetes and motivation, please pop me an email or visit our Facebook page.
