Broccoli Salad

Guys, I don’t mean to brag, buuuut I hit it out of the park with this one! I was craving a salad, but wasn’t wanting your typical lettuce or spinach based salad. I took a look in the fridge, saw broccoli and went out on a limb with this one. And, boy was it tasty!

Managing T1D On My Wedding Day(s)

Awhile back I had considered writing a post about our wedding day and how I managed to navigate this dream day while balancing T1D, but I honestly felt that although the day is a once in a lifetime experience, my T1D was no different than the day before.

Energy Bites

Let’s get back to food, shall we? I’ve been distracted with life lately so much so that I haven’t been putting aside time for writing and recipe making. With exams done and the craziness of life subsided for the next week or so, I woke up early this morning with a few hours to spare before going to a rowing class so I thought I would take this time to get back into it! Read More »
