Issue 12 of Sweet Life
Happy National Diabetes Month!
It’s no surprise that November is our favourite month here at Sweet Life – the one time of the year that everyone wants to talk about diabetes. So let’s spread the word far and wide!
This issue is all about conversations around diabetes – talking about it with our parents, our friends, those who we know and those we don’t know just yet. Diabetes awareness is a powerful tool. Our cover star, Neville Pillay, does this in a most inspiring way – check out our interview with him to find out more.
For me, spreading the word about diabetes is about showing that it’s possible to live a perfectly normal, happy, healthy life as a diabetic. But there are certain things that make it much easier to do that – having the right food in the pantry, knowing which recipes to cook that are delicious and good for you, and getting active in the great outdoors. We’ve got advice on all this and more in this issue!
Of course, the festive season is also just around the corner, which means temptation is at every turn. There are two things I try and remember at this time of the year: Everything in moderation, and the joy of feeling well… Which comes from eating well and looking after my diabetes.
Happy Diabetes Month and all the best for the festive season and new years!
