Just because having diabetes means watching what we eat, doesn’t mean that we don’t care about food. Most of us in fact probably care too much.
The trick is to increase the quality so we can decrease the quantity. Getting the tastiest and freshest foods is the way to go.
And going to our local farmers market is the trip to make. Here in northeastern Colorado, where we are more than a mile high, fresh local fruit and vegetables are just now coming into season.
We haven’t had a farmers market here for almost half a year. So I am very much looking forward to the first one of this spring in a couple of days.
The Boulder farmers market is like other farmers markets around the country. They provide locally grown vegetables, fruits, flowers, plants, gourmet cheeses and wines sold by the farmers who produce them.

Tired of your same old salad? Looking for a fresh, new taste for summer? Allow me to introduce you to one of my favorite chefs and cookbook authors: Joyce Goldstein. She takes salads to a gourmet level beyond the usual iceberg lettuce with tasteless, mass-produced tomatoes and some carrot pieces; all smothered in blue cheese dressing.

But if you're living with the same chronic pain you've had for years, it can sometimes be hard to grab on to that spirit of hopefulness. Over the past few days, I've been thinking about this upcoming new year and how I wanted to approach it. I knew I didn't want to make a bunch of stale resolutions that I'd never keep. Yet I couldn't shake the feeling that somehow this year needed to be different. I was still mulling over these thoughts when my phone rang. It was Sharon, one of my oldest and dearest friends. We hadn't taked in several months, so we had a lot of catching up to do. I asked her what she had been doing and how her children and their families were. She was bubbling over with exciting stories of everything that was going on in all of their lives. Then Sharon asked the inevitable question – “So what's new with you?”...
