Meal plan August 17th- 23rd

This is my first post on this brand new blog. I am so exited. I have a one year old daughter named Daisy May. I also have a three year old daughter named Bobbiesue. They both keep me super busy. I also have a diabetic husband who just got diagnosed in June. These things keep my life super busy.

I am going to share with you today some ways to make feeding a diabetic fun.

The first way is play with different spice combinations. I don’t think I will ever run out of different spice combinations to play with. My favorite ones are chipotle and garlic on pork chops. My other favorite is Molasses and bacon and chicken. I use the mccormick grill mates for this.

The next way is to grill out. This is the prime time of year for grilling. The weather is beautiful outside. I love to just grill out and play with my girls while cooking a delicious healthy meal. I like to add my favorite spices mentioned above to meat and grill it.

The last but still a great way is to use local produce that is being grown around me. I love to use corn on the cobb as a side bought at a roadside farmer’s stand. I also love to go the farmers market and buy green peppers, onions, cucumbers and carrots and make a salad from them. I also add the green peppers and onions to my food all week long.

I also enjoy buying brats from a local german meat shop. It tastes so good because it was made fresh. Louies finer meats in Cumberland, WI has great brats. Louies site.

These are a few fun cooking methods that I like to feed my diabetic husband with. He deserves me to come up with fun cooking methods because he works 60+ hours a week for my family. I love what he does for our family so I try to cook the best food I can for him while trying to keep it frugal. The meal ideas from my meal plan may not work for all diabetics. My husband works all day and a very physical job so I need to keep his carbs on the medium side so he doesn’t go low and get sick.
