So all sarcasm aside, it is certainlyContinue reading “What can I have that won’t affect my blood sugar?”

What is your target range?

When I was in school, I hated math and most things that involved numbers. I was good enough to get by but I definitely focused my efforts a whole lot more in the areas of art and science.
