Prebolusing the Sh*t Out of Things.
Now, at the halfway mark of my pregnancy, insulin resistance is becoming a bit of a thing, and is going to progress into an Actual Thing as the weeks go on, which happened last time and I’m prepared for but it still a bit whoa and this sentence is a run-on. Which means that basal… Read More

5 Worst Things to Consume If You Have Diabetes.
Today is World Health Day and the focus is on diabetes.  Every media outlet in the world is picking up on this health story and twisting it just so, highlighting misconceptions aplenty and feeding the stigma about diabetes.  Messages get muddled and broken down into clickbait headlines that… Read More

Gimme a Beet!
Beets haven’t always been top-of-preference for my palette.  I read somewhere that people either love the taste of beets or think they taste like dirt, and I used to be in the latter camp.  But these days, beets are most desirable and I am looking for a calendar dedicated entirely to them,… Read More

Marcus is cool.  I’m pretty certain about this because he has diabetes, thus making him part of a group of people I trust without justification outside of the whole “not making insulin, either” part.  (And he makes entertaining videos, but that’s a whole separate post.)… Read More
