These are just so delicious. You can add choc chips if you like, or coconut, or chopped nuts.
1 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup liquid stevia or substitute
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Combine ingredients and drop by teaspoonfuls on cookie sheet. Bake for 8 minutes. Let cool. Recipe doesn't make very many, so you could double recipe as you wish.
I have had the most dreadful cold all week, the chemist refused to let me buy cold/flu tablets since they raise the blood pressure of diabetics so much, so I have been going it alone. I have actually never felt more alone in my life, no lemon and honey, hot blackcurrant drinks, no comfort at all, just me and a few boxes of tissues. I broke down and ate a mandarin orange one day, was delicious, but oh dear, did it ever raise my blood sugars! My little poodle behaved most oddly, snuggled up to…Continue
I have been invited to a formal tea party, RSVP and all that. I have to admit I find it hilariously funny that a known diabetic should be invited to a tea party. I have said I will go because I have already turned down a like invitation, but am not looking forward to the experience. I had no excuse this time so will have to go. Think the best thing I can do is to make sure I am not in the least hungry before I see all those cakes and cookies. Am wondering whether to pop a few celery sticks…Continue
I am so pleased with myself, have gone from 6.5 A1C to 6.1 in just under 3 months. Here they are not that concerned about T2s since they can be controlled with drugs and more drugs. My dr. was most surprised that I had achieved the reduction. In truth it was not that difficult, I just substituted full fat milk for cream in my coffee. All else remained the same. Since my hospital stay last year, in the short stay ward, I have regained the 5kg I lost and it has been difficult to lose again. In…Continue
I went to the dr. for the results of my blood test to find my A1C had risen from 6.0 to 6.5 and that I have high cholesterol. I also am low on calcium and potassium. The cholesterol problem is probably related to having high fat dairy as per the Bernstein diet, I guess it is just not for elderly diabetics. Or maybe just some diabetics. Very disappointing result as I have been trying very hard to be good with the low carb stuff. The other thing that has been upsetting me is that I am putting…Continue
There I was awake and up at 4am and longing for a cup of coffee, but I needed to get a blood test for the A1C thingie. So being good I made do with a glass of water (definitely does not substitute for the first coffee of the day). Then I began to shake and feel dizzy. My bsg was 3.6! Munching on glucose tablets I decided I was wasting my time but stuck it out with no coffee and no breakfast. But no, the dr. could not do the blood test so I have an appointment for next week.
How do you…
