I was recently invited to speak at a Diabetes Expo held in the lovely town of Brooks, Alberta. I was so impressed by the Diabetes Association of Brooks & District, who runs this event – this is a group of people who are REALLY passionate about the care of their diabetics! They are so excited about diabetes care, in fact, that they have their own publication (pictured above) called the Healthy Choices Guide. Amongst many other pearls, this book has a great collection of diabetic-friendly recipes. A huge thanks goes out to the Brooks team, who have graciously agreed to allow me to share a few of their delicious creations.
The first recipe I’d like to share with you is just AWESOME – low in calories, rich in protein, and nearly carb free, meaning that one of these delicious muffins won’t have a big impact on blood sugar.
