    Diabetes Friendly Guide for Thanksgiving Dinner

    MODERATORS...I hope that this doesn't get deleted as I really feel that it is some very useful information. But IF you do delete it my apologies.

    Hi Everyone. I thought I would share this with everyone.
    I have a diabetes educator that sends me information occasionally about things dealing with diabetes. Today sent me this one. Please I hope that everyone will check it out. It has some great recipes and it also has a suggestion on how to fill your plate. So that you can enjoy almost everything for your Thanksgiving meal. I think it is just filled with great information.

    There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING...

    By just looking at that picture of the plate with the food when you think about it...it looks like alot of food. I try to do have my plate with salads and veggies but sometimes it is really hard. But one thing I have always done in all my adult life is when we go out to eat at like Hometown buffet, I use only one plate and on that plate, I ALWAYS fill it up with a salad and then put my other choices AROUND that salad and so I can't overeat because there is no room for much. And I NEVER EVER EVER have dessert. Thats a personal choice as I do not like sweets, but I will usually fill up a salad plate with just a small salad as my desert. It works for me, it may not work for others. My husband thinks I'm crazy having salad for my desert while he eats 4 or 5 of those custard flan or whatever it is and ice cream. LOL

    Holy crap, that's a lot of carbs! I suppose it's better than completely pigging out but wow.

    I'm so jealous of diabetics who can eat like that. lol

    So am I. I definately don't eat all that. Most stuff for the holiday meals I don't like so its just a bit easier for me to eat less carbs.

    Haha! Well I'm jealous about that, too, because I LOVE stuffing and mashed potatoes. LOL

    Fortunately I can have this version of stuffing anytime: http://genaw.com/lowcarb/stuffing_pie.html
    If you aren't familiar with that site, it has some amazing recipes.

    Many thanks for the pdf. Pumpkin pie is one of my favourites and of course - generally off limits!

    Looks good for some, but my DH is diabetic and a lot of this we stay awy from. Carrots are very high in sugar. We do occasionally do a small sweet potato...no mashed potatoes...basically we stay away from the starches since they turn to sugar in the body. It has taken years to figure this out but even a lot of the drs have no idea and each diabetic is different in the way he or she metabolizes the food they eat. If it's someting he can only have a tablespoon of, I don't fix it....too much of a tease. Thanks for the link anyway. Wish we could go there.
    Those who are piecemakers will sew seeds.

    Hugs,
    Drue

    I love Pumpkin Pie and am a diabetic. However, I make my usual recipe for the pie and only take a very small slice at a time. After I eat the pie, I will do something active for at least 15 minutes. Clean house, vacuum, play with the dogs, or just go for a walk around the neighborhood. After a full meal, a brisk walk feels good.

    Love the site and the recipe for Pumpkin Pie there. I will try it. (I can have a bigger slice!)

    Is there a doctor in the house? I just got bit by the quilting bug!
