Suddenly there's been a surge in insulin pump upgrades. Read about
Medronic's new 640g -which
comes with SmartGuard anti-hypo
technology onboard. p. 8. Any regular readers will know that this magazine
puts great emphasis on the enjoyment of food
as well as knowing what your food contains. I
regularly include info on counting carbs and also on 'zero
carb' foods, things that should not make your blood glucose
levels rise. Among these fab ingredients are nearly all of the
many interesting and tasty herbs and spices available from
so many cultures, nearly all of which can be relied on not to
raise blood sugars. Even if a jar costs you £3 it will last a
while and be worth every penny. In this issue we talk to the
Australian author Ian 'Herbie' Hemphll who is the author
of the Herb and Spice Bible. With winter foods often using
spices to bring extra warmth and depth to a dish it's the
perfect time to reacquaint yourself with the spices of life!
