Default Type 1 Diabetic

Hello, I'm new to the forums and I notice it's nice to talk to a variety of diabetics for helps and tips. I've been on carb counting, but need some tips on kinds of food to eat to make myself healthier

We're forever talking about food around here, so pull up a chair & make yourself comfortable! There are many type 1s and you'll find all kinds of successful management plans . . . the Diabetes Forum Lounge has sticky threads for daily meals, and you can get ideas for your own meals by seeing what some of us are eating.

Welcome to DF. One thing we like to do is eat, here. Check out the food forum for some fantastic recipes. For me the biggest bg spiker is wheat flour, so I avoid it like the plague. I substitute things like almond flour, coconut flour, ground flaxseed and even whey poweder in my recipes. This cuts the carbs down about 75%. I also use a lot of low carb/gluten free blogs for my recipe and menu ideas. Here are a few that I like

Linda's Low Carb Menus & Recipes - Home
Low Carb Diets at About.com - Atkins South Beach and More Low Carb Diets
Comfy Belly
Healthy Gluten Free Recipes | Elana's Pantry
Healthy Indulgences
