A Merry Christmas is possible...

by Nicky T2 on 24 December 2011

...even for Type 2s! Don't forget that turkey, sausages, bacon, and sprouts are effectively carb-free; carrots and parsnips may need a bit more caution. I avoid the roast potatoes and instead have a small slice of Christmas pud and cream, all washed down with a glass of dry wine and followed by a post-meal walk. Normal blood glucose is resumed very soon :)
