Nothing is better than a soft peanut butter cookie. How can you improve on perfection? By adding chocolate, of course. But not chocolate chips, that’s so 2014. How about stuffing the center of the cookie with chocolate. There it is, just a normal-looking peanut butter cookie…with a surprise chocolatey center. I do believe we just improved on perfection. <a href="http://asweetlife.org/recipes/chocolate-stuffed-peanut-butter-cookies/">Read more</a>

I knew if were to wake up one morning and stop eating everything I loved, I'd be hungry and cranky. So, I gave up carbs gradually and turned into a low carber with ease. Here are the steps that helped me. If you are considering a low carb diet, I hope they'll help you, too. <a href="http://asweetlife.org/feature/how-i-started-a-successful-low-carb-diet/">Read more</a>

Product Review: Animas Vibe Insulin Pump
I was given the opportunity to do a free two-week trial of the Vibe on behalf of A Sweet Life. Having never used an Animas pump before (but nearly all of their competitors), I was particularly excited to see what they’re all about and to get my hands on the first Dexcom G4-integrated pump system. <a href="http://asweetlife.org/feature/product-review-animas-vibe-insulin-pump/">Read more</a>

J&J Animas finally received US FDA approval of their Animas Vibe Dexcom-integrated insulin pump that has been available in Europe since 2011 and will start shipping in January 2015. Another player in the CGMS business, Abbott Diabetes, received the CE Mark for their new FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring system in 2014. <a href="http://asweetlife.org/feature/7-new-diabetes-products-to-look-for-in-2015/">Read more</a>

Best Low Carb Holiday #Recipe Round-Up Ever!
There is something about the holiday season that inspires brunch. The chance to linger over breakfast with friends and family, coffee or tea in hand, in a relaxed casual atmosphere - it’s what the holidays are all about. And it doesn’t have to derail your healthy low carb diet either. There are so many great breakfast and brunch recipes to choose from, you don’t need to miss out on the celebrations. <a href="http://asweetlife.org/recipes/20-low-...

Fear may very well be the number one complication impacting families of children with diabetes today (and many adults, as well). As we glimpse more into life with diabetes, seeing more glucose trends thanks to tools, hearing more stories thanks to social media, being told more and more to fear… it might be crippling many of us. So how does one vanquish fear? <a href="http://asweetlife.org/feature/these-7-things-will-make-your-life-with-diabetes-b...

I learned that Tess’ little brother Jeff had been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. My heart broke for their family. How could the people who were so understanding and caring when I was diagnosed be dealing with the same disease in their own family? Still neighbors, my family offered their family as much support as they could during that hard time. The tables had turned. <a href="http://asweetlife.org/feature/when-diabetes-makes-a-friendship-strong...

This one is for the outside world, the people watching us try to master this parenting a child with diabetes life, because I’ve noticed that you’re avoiding me sometimes. And other times you say things with the best of intentions that just… set me off.So here it is, my guide to help you. Instead of saying what not to say to the parent of a child with diabetes, I offer you what yes to say. I hope it helps you. I know it will help me. <a href="http...

The number staring back at me on the display was in the low 400s. I had no idea what that meant, but I sensed it was bad. The doctor held his breath for a moment before speaking. "I'm sorry to tell you my friend," said the doctor, "but you are a diabetic." That's it. In that brief sentence, one part of my life was over, and another part had begun. <a href="http://asweetlife.org/feature/surviving-but-barely-a-type-1-diabetes-diagnosis-in-nepal/"...
