DFT 1st Anniversary

This month we are celebrating DFT’s (Diabetes Friendly Thursdays) 1st Anniversary. This wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for my awesome team!  I still can’t believe how time has flown. One year is already in the books.

What do you do for an anniversary? You celebrate! In order to do this we decided to showcase our favorite recipes. We went back and dug up some classics.

I have been a food blogger for 2 years now. I happen to meet Sonal via Facebook food groups whose blog, www.simplyvegetarian777.com is well known in the food blogging arena. Sonal is one of those people who are always there to help people whatever way she can.

Sonal decided to start something that would benefit people who have diabetes. Her master plan was to start blogging diabetes friendly recipes and Diabetes Friendly Thursdays (DFT ) was born. She reached out to me, and some of other bloggers to join this great cause.   I was so thrilled!  Not only could I learn more about diabetes but it would also benefit my husband who suffers from diabetes. DFT is a great platform that gives me a chance to create great dishes without losing the taste.

What keeps me motivated? The opportunity to help others with diabetes but also challenges my cooking as we have different themes each month. I can still create great tasting dishes but I also get to learn from other team members to create more sizzling dishes. DFT has given me the platform to enhance my skills.
