๐Ÿ‘‰If you're a diabetic whether you're type 1 or 2, you really should be counting your carbs. It can save your life. You should shoot to keep your carbs under 150 grams per day! If you're on medication and your sugar is still high, lower your carb intake, and see your local Physician, or see about getting an endocrinologist. We all only have 1 life, and letting diabetes go for very long untreated will cause many serious problems, and will ultimately kill you!!! I will be posting more Diabetic friendly crockpot/smoothie recipes on later blog posts so I hope you will subscribe below!
