I had the most relaxing bath ever using this avocado bath bomb my friend gifted me and then enjoyed my time alone, having my healthy breakfast and herbal sweet rose tea while watching The Glory which is a korean drama and it's on Netflix. I definitely recommend it as it's really interesting but very dark.

Celebrate Hanukkah and Thrive with Diabetes: Counting Carbs Ahead of Time

Get prepared for celebrating Hanukkah with family and friends by taking a few measures ahead of time.

One way to prepare is by planning your meals in advance by counting carbs that you plan to eat ahead of time.

You can learn the exact number of carbs in foods by using a carb counting app.

You can use carb counting as a tool to match your activity level and medicines with the foods you eat. Most people with diabetes use it to manage their blood sugar more easily, which helps them stay healthy longer.

Here are just a few highly rated carb counting apps for 2021:

1) Carb Manager
2) Calorie Counter – MyFitnessPal
3) Macros
4) MyPlate Calorie Tracker
3) Senza

In addition to carb counting apps, you can use carb counting charts like the graphic above from Beyond Type 1 that was specially designed for Hanukkah.

🕎 What are some of the things in the graphic that stands out to you?

🕎 Are you surprised with the carb amounts?

Keto Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes

Sharing another diabetes-friendly recipe. This recipe is for all of my pumpkin lovers 😀

Keto Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes

1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
1/2 cup sweetener
1/4 cup brown sweetener
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup Keto evaporated milk*
2/3 cup almond flour
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice*
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 12 cup muffin tin with silicone liners, foil liners sprayed with cooking spray or just spray the cups with cooking spray. Either of these three methods will make it easy to take the cupcake out after it’s cooked. Paper liners make it difficult to remove the cupcakes.

Mix the pumpkin, sweeteners, eggs, vanilla extract and evap. milk. Add the flour, pumpkin spice, salt, baking powder and baking soda to the mixture. Fill each muffin cup with 1/3 cup of the mixture. Bake for twenty minutes and let cool for twenty minutes. Remove cupcakes from pan and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle more pumpkin pie spice on top and serve. Makes 12 cupcakes.

* Keto Evaporated Milk:
20 oz Heavy Whipping Cream
Simmer 30-45 minutes in open saucepan, stirring constantly to avoid scorching.

Makes about 10 oz.
*Pumpkin Pie Spice:
3 tbsp. ground cinnamon
2 tsp. ground ginger
2 tsp. nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp. ground allspice
1 1/2 tsp. ground cloves

My favorite food this time of year is a teeny- tiny plum we call Hungarian plums. They are super tart. I cook them up - tiny bit of water just split and pitted. They turn the most magnificent color. I love it straight, mixed with homemade apple sauce, or poured over vanilla ice cream a hot and cold sweet and sour feel. They are in season only for a short while only right now. My mom may she live and be we’ll always made them during this season.

New to the app.

Hello. I’m new to this app. I’m still looking around, experiencing, & learning. I just wanted to post a thought, I guess.
For the longest time I’ve been putting off trying to control my bipolar. This, in fact has messed with many aspects of my life. I’ve recently decided that I can not live another shitty year. I’ve been reading, & doing more research on being bipolar. I’ve done the pill thing, & seeing someone to talk with. None of which helped or fit me. I hate taking medicine. So I’ve found some articles on Pinterest. They talk about vitamins the body is lacking & healthy foods to eat. Also gives you foods to avoid. I’m taking a shot at the natural remedies. Wish me luck!
