I was working from home today and I had been craving something sweet for hours. Of course, I have no diabetic friendly treats here and because I am expecting a FedEx delivery, I can't leave the house to buy anything.
I needed something quick to make on my afternoon break. Looking through the cabinets, I discover I have the ingredients to make a version of pumpkin muffins. Now the last time I made pumpkin muffins, I hadn't been diagnosed with diabetes yet, so didn't worry about the white flour or loads of sugar in them.
I decided to use the same recipe, but cut the white flour with whole wheat flour. I also cut down the brown sugar from 1 cup to 1/3 cup and added a bit of Stevia to bring it up to around 1/2 a cup in total.

I spent the last week with a bad cold and didn't do a lot of healthy cooking. Toast...yeah, that's my go-to food when I am sick. Toast and jam, no sugar added jam of course.
Well, I am feeling much better today and was in the mood for some "real" food, but nothing too heavy. And of course, I didn't want to expend much energy either. What could be easier than whipping up some home made soup.

I was born in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and spent the first half my life there. I became a mom just after I turned 20 and within a couple of years, decided to move from a small town to a bigger city to take advantage of better job opportunities. After a few great jobs, I finally settled in at a legal publishing company. 13 years later, I'm still there.
