World Diabetes Day

Hey all you fellow Type II Diabetics! The ones who sneak those sugary snacks... a bite here... a bite there... I know you're out there cause I'm there too. But not so much anymore.

A few key rules and you can keep that glucose number down.

First, controlling sugar levels if you're Type II isn't so bad when you make some effort. Like cook it yourself. Bake it yourself. And use the right ingredients.

Now this is optional, but I got rid of grains. Totally. Wheat, Oat, Barley, Corn... whole grain or processed... doesn't matter because in the end, it's sugar.

So you ask what the hell can you eat? Lots. Tons. And it's all good.

Today's feature, in honor of the sweet tooth which need no longer be banished?

The Nut Butter Cups. They seem to be a favorite among my low-carbing, grain-free, gluten-free, diabetic and non-diabetic friends.

If you are a chocoholic, and love peanut butter snacks, I'm going to give you the secret. Use Crunchy Almond Butter (all natural, roasted) and make your own chocolate. 

Chocolate starts with three ingredients, four if you like it on the lighter side. Cocoa. Cocoa Butter (food grade.) One bag can make up to 8 batches, easy. 

You'll also need sweetener. I use Swerve Confectioners. It's a natural sweetener (using a fermenting process) which leaves no weird tastes or nasty gastric side effects. If you keep these ingredients around you'll never have to reach for a donut or a cookie or god-forbid, an almond joy bar, or even worse, peanut butter cup, again. In under 15 minutes, you can have your fix.

FYI... you can find all your ingredients at Amazon

Before you try the nut butter cups... try making your basic chocolate first. Experiment with amounts until your chocolate is just as you like it. Then from there, the chocolate world is your oyster.
