Diabetes never takes a vacation and neither do I.
Since I plan to be here for another 50 years, I've learned to make holidays more about the people or the celebration, rather than the food. In fact, my commitment to my future means very little revolves around food anymore.
There are so many wonderful veggie side dishes that can be enjoyed; too many to list. Turkey is naturally a very diabetic-friendly food, so indulge! If sweets are still part of your life, you could make a sugar free cheesecake or crustless sugar free pumpkin pie or mousse.
But mostly, I'd suggest thinking about the things we, as diabetics today, should be thankful for; insulin, endocrinologists and researchers working to help us live longer, healthier lives without complications.
