Thanksgiving for Diabetics

Just because you have to watch your intake, doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on all of the goodness that the Thanksgiving holiday brings. The most important thing, is of course, friends and family. Colder weather is a sure thing, and safe travel is a must. But when the family is close. The site, battlediabetes.com says it best:

“As a diabetic on Thanksgiving you are left with a couple of choices:
1. You can either stay home and not celebrate with your family and loves ones
2. Or you can make sure that you have a game plan for healthy diabetic eating before you sit down for your meal.”
