Until I became diabetic I didn't have a clue what diabetics eat, either. I have changed my diet but don't expect others to cater to me. If I'm traveling to relatives or friends for the weekend, I bring a cooler of my own food. I bring my own crackers, cheese, greek yogurt, cream cheese and some homemade treats. When I eat meals I bascially eat the meat and veggies and then supplement with my own food later.
