The Betes Organization FUNdraising Campaign! :)

Have you ever thought about what your diabetes might look or sound like if you tried to have a conversation with it? Or the path to growth and healing that could be opened up if you did try?

I never thought about anything like that until I saw the MOST MOVING piece of performance art from The Betes Organization.

When I saw the way Marina carried around her diabetes, how it weighed her down, how all of the emotions that living with diabetes can stir up were brought to life on stage, I was in tears!

It blew my mind to see one woman with diabetes act out her relationship with her diabetes on stage, and to deeply FEEL EXACTLY what she was performing in my mind, body, and spirit.

Marina (the Founder of The Betes Organization) and I made a 3 minute video (I’m wearing a hand puppet for the first time in my life…MY Betes…this video will make you smile!) to spread awareness about the work we’re doing 🙂

Get your shirt or sticker now & support a life-changing cause (lots to choose from!)

100% of profits made through shirt sales go directly to The Betes Organization to enable us to serve over 200 children and families with diabetes across the country this summer with our whole-family program – The Overneath!

What does YOUR Betes look like? Sound like? Get your shirt now before the campaign ends (April 17) and open up a conversation with the Betes in your life today.

PLEASE SHARE, thank you! 🙂 <3 xo – Daniele

Low Carb, Organic, Non GMO Pasta that Tastes Good and is Easy on Blood Sugar!

This week I wanted to share my review of the Explore Asian Brand line of low carb, organic, non GMO pastas because they’ve definitely added an awesome dimension of variety and value to my diabetes management choices when it comes to eating pasta.

I love them as an alternative to regular pasta because they don’t spike my blood sugar at all (however, this is only my experience and everyone’s body is different!) They also come in a number of varieties (black bean spaghetti, edamame fettuccine, etc.) and have a ton of fiber and protein in each serving which makes them super filling. And of course I’m a huge fan of the fact that they’re all organic and non GMO!

Give them a try and leave a comment letting me know what you think. How did it affect your blood sugar?
