    Default Diabetes on a Budget???

    <font face="Arial" size="2"><span class="930571615-09122002">I know this thread has been discussed, but I didn't think I could do anything for my Mom in NC. However, she has now moved in with us in Kansas. Because this happened due to losing her job, things will be very tight. I am doing the cooking (and helping her get her diet in order) I need information and cheap suggestions for meals and snacks.

    <font face="Arial" size="2"><span class="930571615-09122002">I also need to be able to prepare meals she can heat and serve that are good for her and three kids because I am going to work nights, so anything that keeps well or can freeze will be appreciated.

    Go to http://www.budget101.com/id194.htm for Diabetic Gift Mixes. You
    will also find a chart on substituting certain types of sweeteners in
    ANY recipe that your mom likes.

    Basically you can convert any of the recipes she allready enjoys.

    ps, I will not be available for a few days, our youngest broke his
    arm this past weekend (proving to his Older brother that he can climb
    higher and jump further) & I will be working overtime to cover the
    bills, <argh>.

    Hi Katey,
    There are a zillion sources out there. First, look to your
    local American Diabetes Association. They can be an incredible
    help, Including sometimes having education classes. This may or may
    not involve some cost. 2. Check out the library, they will have
    many informative books plus cookbooks (many from the ADA) 3.) Most
    major food companys are happy to send you information on their
    brands, call their 800# and ask. 4.) Take into consideration any
    other health issues that may be diet related such as high blood
    pressure or cholesterol.
    5.) You mentioned your mom lost her job, but I'm assuming she is
    able to cook etc. Plus, how long has she been diabetic and has she
    taken any courses on diabetes. If not, you might want to check your
    local Agriculture Extention Agent, that office will often offer free
    or low cost diabetes education classes. If she is in good health,
    don't assume you have to do for her. Health wise it is better for
    her to feel needed, not a burden.

    Finally, if I can help you any, just holler....I've been diabetic
    for 30 years, so if I don't have an answer, I know where to get one.

    Hugs Poppy
