Seed Crackers GrainBrain Style

Have you ever tried seed crackers? All you wanted was a little crunch in your life, but all you got was disappointment. Were they a little… papery? Or were they full of chemical stuff, or stuff that you can’t/don’t want to eat? I’m making you a very happy bunny today. Almost everyone who has tried […]

Make A Change – 4 Steps How To

It’s never too late to start a positive change.   “The time for action is now. It’s never too late to do something.” Antoine de Saint-Exupery   It’s easy to think that “you’re too far gone/old/overweight/addicted/stuck” to make a change for yourself and your life. I know where you’re at right now. I really do. If […]

Diabetes Belief

Don’t stop believin’! Dealing with any kind of health challenges is, well, challenging to day the least. And, yes, it’s even more so when you know said challenge (say, diabetes) isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. This is exactly the point at which it’s so important to keep believing. I’m definitely not talking about a religious […]

Fat Facts

Food fact: Fat, glorious fat! Let’s set the record straight here once and for all: not all fats are bad! Sure, the transfatty crappy vegetable oils (cottonseed, rapeseed and processed sunflower oils for example), margarine, the junk food you get at most fast food restaurants or chips/cakes/cookies/candy aren’t what we’re talking about today. (Which are […]

Diabetes & The Long Run

When you’re first diagnosed with Diabetes, it’s a major shock to the system. The questions are endless. What do I eat? What medications do I have to take when? I have to inject myself several times a day?! What the what? I didn’t sign up for this!! But what happens after living with diabetes for […]

Paleo Scones

Going grain free = going bread free. In the very most cases, at least. The “bread” you do eat won’t be the factory produced, refined stuff you find at the super market. Bread is usually one of the things I hear most often from my clients that they miss when they are getting healthier. Which […]

Traveling with Diabetes

I truly love to travel, it’s one of the biggest passions in my life. To get to see, feel, sense, experience and smell the smells of a new place, is sometimes what keeps me going through a rough patch. I try to travel as often as I can, meaning as often as money allows me […]

New Year – New Resolutions?

“Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress; working hard for something we love is called passion” So why stress yourself to a goal you think you need and want? I don’t believe in new years resolutions. They are very often a surefire way of setting yourself up for failure. Why is […]

Lonely Diabetes?

Plus one is the loneliest number. And my constant companion Diabetes knows exactly which buttons to push to make me feel lonely, alone and isolated. It’s the time of family gatherings, meeting friends and spending time with those you love. But if your (involuntary and unwanted) BFF Diabetes doesn’t play along, it doesn’t matter who […]

Saffron Coconut Macaroons

I know just how busy you are today. So today’s post will be very short and to the point. A few people have asked me about the recipe for the Saffron Coconut Macaroons that I shared in my Diabetes Advent Calendar. And because I’m feeling the festive spirits (no, I don’t mean the rum), I […]
