This is a personal lifestyle blog that is centered on diabetes. The onset of COVID-19 and postal delays have caused me to temporarily close my sugar-free bakery, The Diabetic Pastry Chef. This in turn has led me to change the focus of my blog. I now share my personal life, thoughts and musings, sugar-free recipes, informational diabetes-related articles and videos, my spirituality, music choices etc. I hope you will find points of interest to you as you await the reopening of my sugar-free bakery.
This blog is of course as I just mentioned, heavy on diabetes information, food, art, music, dance and exercise. I have a love for the arts and have always appreciated and dabbled in it, mainly concentrating on writing, food and design. I am a recipient of the Parents Choice Gold Award for an educational toy I designed for children. I entered the competition on a whim and was shocked I actually won such a coveted prize! I love designing all sorts of things including food, this blog, home interiors etc. I collect art and books, do a little bit of acting, and I love to listen to music and watch and participate in dance, even though I don’t dance very well. Lol! But I reason, dance and exercise are good for keeping the blood sugar down.
I also enjoy conceptualizing, coming up with formulas, and sharing helpful information I come upon with others. Diabetes is a tough disease, I want to do whatever I can to help myself and others to navigate this perilous quagmire. If I had to articulate what I am doing as a whole with this blog, I would say I am trying to make some sort of social change here. Through food and health, diversity and inclusiveness, art, music, video, the written word, and spirituality. I’m trying to do a small part of improving the health of the people on our planet. I hope you enjoy your time here!
Photo of me taken 10 years ago. I like to date my photos, so you don’t one day see me in real time and think, what happened??? (Lol)! So now if you do have that thought, know that TIME is what happened!
