A Week In The Life Of Amber’s T1D Diet

menu planner

The DDG does a fabulous job of documenting our favorite recipes and random food concoctions. In honor of the Sixth Annual Diabetes Blog Week, I want to highlight a few recipes that keep my healthy eating habits in check. As a T1D, my week begins with a mental check list:

  1. Grocery shopping – I’ve admitted in a few posts how I feel like a grocery shopping nazi because I frequent at LEAST three stores a week.
  2. Meal Planning – What am I craving and won’t mind eating a few times?
  3. Make A List – Put your cravings on paper after checking your cabinets for ingredients.
  4. Food Prep – Prioritize your weekly game plan and schedule time to prep food.

Whew.  It sounds like a lot, but these four steps help me to prepare and enjoy a healthy lifestyle. Below are a few of my favorites – I hope they get your wheels turning and your mouth watering.
