Welcome!

Hello to all my fellow diabetic and nondiabetic inhabitants of this earth. My name is Abby, I’m a 24-year-old Vancouver native currently living in Toronto, Canada. I’m a musician, health enthusiast and lover of all things chocolate.

 

This website is a personal projection for my constant thirst for learning new and better ways to live as a type 1 diabetic. Being chronically ill has the potential to be chronically shitty, but it doesn’t have to be. Over the past 7 years of having diabetes, I’ve learned a lot about how to harmoniously coexist (for the most part) with the beast it can sometimes prove to be. I know that my blood sugar will never be perfect all the time, but knowing that I have the ability to keep it within my comfortable range, and still live a fulfilling, non-restrictive life, is empowering to me. The reason I care so much about maintaining the best blood sugar I can is because my ultimate goal is to be super old and wrinkly and not have any complications. Check out “my journey” to read more about the different diets and experiments I’ve tried that have lead me to where I am today.

Total Macros for carbs and protein per slice (assuming you cut it into 12 slices) are 10g Carb and 10g protein! 

So here is there recipe:

Wanting to impress some guests with a cute/healthy hors d'oevre at your next dinner party? Or maybe your like me and you just want to stuff your face with something yummy that isn't going to wreak havoc on your blood sugar levels! Either way, this is the recipe for YOU.

These cauliflower tots are a fun twist on the classic potato version, slightly more flavourful and a lot better for your tum. 

So here is it!! Your tastebuds will thank you :)
