    I have a 6 year old diabetic son. I do find it difficult to plan low carb snacks for school. Any advice?

    Sure Ronel! Consider fresh veggies (carrot sticks, cucumber rounds, broccoli trees), cheese sticks, jerky, hb eggs – he doesn’t like veg? Try veggie pancakes! There are a ton of recipe sites out there, like balancedbites.com, paleomg.com, nomnompaleo.com & civilizedcavemancooking.com. Of course, google will also be able to help you. And if you find any great school lunch ideas, come back andet us know!

    Great post! And your comment re: lowering carb intake and getting off the pump and onto the pen is inspiring-something I’ve been thinking about in the several months. I know nothing about the pen and a little about Paleo–I adjusted my own diet after diagnosis, only eating whole, unprocessed foods but still eating carbs and, like you, counting like a pro :) but it was soon obvious that eating less carbs was key. Btwn boluses and basel I average about 25 units/day. And I would really like to dis-conect!
    Your recommendation re; a pen would be welcome-I’ll do more research on the Paleo diet.
    Would someday love to visit SA-was in Kenya and Uganda 2 years ago. Africa is a compelling place.
