As I’ve recently posted about diabetes related, travel debacles, I wanted to start your Monday morning with a positive travel experience. I’m not bragging, but I’m lucky enough to visit dear friends each January in San Antonio who own what used to be called a “bed & breakfast”. King William Manor no longer serves breakfast, but Craig & Alison are a wealth of knowledge as to local places to visit depending on our preferred diet.

This recipe is simple, good for you and a great replacement for dairy. Enjoy.

Most folks just throw clothes in a bag, grab some cash and hit the road. That is NOT the case for a diabetic. I’m a planner so the diabetes related thoughts start flooding my consciousness about a week or so prior to leaving.
- Do I have enough insulin?
- Should I pack extra needles?
