Enjoy Your Memorial Day with Good Food and Drink

By May 22, 2014

Follow me on:

It's almost Memorial Day - time to get prepared for good food, family, friends, and fun. While there may be lots of temptation coming your way - snack foods, sweet treats and festive cocktails, I encourage you not to worry. You have the tools to make good decisions and you are in control when it comes to your diabetes. People may want to remind you of things you cannot eat - corn, watermelon, and other fruit. Politely tell them that they are incorrect. You can incorporate these foods into your diet with some planning. Typically, there is something to eat for everyone at a barbecue. And if you're hosting it's even better - you get to plan the menu. Have fun with it!
