Ramblings of a mother of five, wife of one, and Type 2 diabetic.

I have come to the realization that there are certain foods that can no longer be a regular part of my eating plan. My mantra is "Moderation not deprivation" however these are foods that I have a hard time consuming in moderation.
regular or thick crust pizza
I'm sure my list will get longer as I continue on this journey with diabetes. Some of these I'm more upset about than others. I can deal without the white bread. Wheat bread tastes better and I'm loving the Arnold Sandwich Thins that are lower in carbs. However I *love* pizza, doughnuts, and pancakes. Luckily we don't have any of those very often. I'm trying to work out in my mind how I can still have those "forbidden" items since I don't want to deprive my family. If we have pizza, I might have a small piece and then fill up on a nice dinner salad.
I've been told by others that dealing with diabetes is a constant learning experience that will always involve fine-tuning. Thankfully I have some great company for the journey!
