Hi my name is Andiswa and I am a Type 1 diabetic.
I was diagnosed with diabetes in June 2011 and am using Humulin 30/70 Biosynthethic Human Insulin. I inject myself twice a day,in the morning before I eat and in the evening before I eat.
Being diagnosed with diabetes has not been easy for me at all for the past year as I am still a student and can’t afford some of the foods. My mother is unemployed and it is very hard for me to get money to buy food.
I sometimes have to buy cheap products that are not healthy so that they can last me to the end of the month so to receive money to buy food which is sometimes not enough.
I try to follow a healthy diet but its very hard if you don’t have healthy foods.
I would like to know if anyone has a list of recipes and diets that I can use that are not too expensive for me but will be healthy and easy to make, for breakfast, lunch and dinner and also healthy snack choices that I can choose from. It would really mean a lot to me if I can get these recipes and a diet I can use.
