Cooking healthy food after a type 1 diagnosis can be difficult. Counting carbohydrates when cooking a recipe from scratch, weighing the whole, and then measuring the portion size is hard work. It can become simpler to narrow your cooking repertoire, and revert to meat and three veg. Snacks are also challenging, and instead of baking you may be inclined to reach for carb-free snacks or pre-packed items with carbs labelled, to take the headache away.
Here we aim to take away your pain and give you back your cooking freedom. Our recipes are focused on meals and snacks that are family-friendly, and weighed in a variety of portion sizes so you can choose the option to best suit your family. We’ll be building on our database of recipes all the time, so check back regularly for your favourites.
