On a daily basis, we get questions from diabetic people on what our experts say to eat and not to eat.
We say, these recipes for the food we love that is healthier as a practical answer.
We also hope that Dan’s story inspires diabetic people to start wearing the chef caps and start cooking something healthy. These recipes make a delicious meal.
