Tip of the Week:
People with diabetes should check their feet everyday. Nerve complications can lead to numbness in the feet and may
leave you unaware of injury or infection. Follow these steps to keep feet healthy.

I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with your menus.
In the one week I've used the menu, my sugar readings have come down and
I've lost 2 pounds. I have a doctor appt. on Wednesday and I'm sure she
will be very happy when I show her my log with all the good foods I'm
eating along with the great numbers I have now. Your site is just what I
needed. Thanks so much.
