New Cookbook

Do you want to cook healthy for you and your family?  Hate how cook-books usually don’t tell you the nutrition facts in the meal you’re about to prepare?

Well, I do!  I recently came across an awesome and simple diabetic cookbook.  Josh and I aren’t diabetic, but it doesn’t mean I can’t cook from a Diabetic cookbook.  It’s full of delicious recipes that are healthy, well-balanced meals. 

The nutrition facts are listed with each recipe, so you know exactly what you are putting into your mouth.  Back when I was being very strict with my calorie counting with LoseIt, dinner was the hardest meal for me to calculate.  If I wasn’t eating a Lean Cuisine or some other pre-packaged meal that listed the nutrition facts, I didn’t really know what I was eating; I could only estimate.  Plus, cooking fresh meals is so much better for you.

From the second I started flipping through the cookbook, my stomach started growling.  There are so many good recipes!  Chances are if you come to my house for dinner, you’ll probably be trying one of my new creations from this cookbook!

  2. I have to be honest, I would never ever ever buy a diabetic cookbook. I'm willing to try whatever you make though!

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
