Guilt Free Snacks and Desserts

Starting to feel like a walking vegetable garden? Is extra virgin Olive oil and cold pressed organic flax seed oil oozing out of the pores of your skin? Are you having dreams of yourself lifting weights and doing push ups, and climbing steep mountains? The let's take a break and see what sort of goodies you may be able to eat without driving your blood glucose level up over 300. Try these on for size.

  • A cup of sugar free hot chocolate with cinnamon sprinkled on top. Heck, go for broke and add a tablespoon of sugar free whipped topping
  • Bowl of sugar free pudding layered with sugar free whipped topping, and cinnamon
  • A bowl of melon salad (ALL melons are good for you) Cut up cantaloupe and honey dew melon into chunks, sprinkle with chopped mint leaves, and perhaps some heavy cream whipped, stir together and enjoy
  • Lite yougurt sprinkled with cinnamon
Hey, I know it isn't the same as a Jim Dandy at Friendly's ice cream or  a double fudge chocolate cake topped with Haagen Dazs ice cream and hot fudge, but it isn't bad and it is a lot healthier for you in the long run.

OH, I forgot, now go out and run two miles and do 100 push ups. Only kidding, but I have a sense of humor too. Everyone needs to let go once in a while for their sanity. Just remember Type 2 diabetes is very serious business and you have to discipline yourself. It's NOT easy, but it is simple.


God Almighty declared Himself to be the Healer of His people with these words: "I am the Lord that healeth thee." He spoke those words to over a million people (Ex. 12:37). God's people, after seeing all the plagues fall upon Egypt, believed God's words were true. The result: Every one of them who needed healing was made well in preparation for the trip to the Promised Land!
How do we know that?? The answer is in Psalm 105:37, where we are told "He (God) brought them forth...and there was not one feeble person among their tribes...."

He who takes medicine and neglects to diet wastes the skill of his doctors.  ~Chinese Proverb
