Are You Diabetic or Pre-Diabetic?
I’m Jules Clancy, a food lover with a degree in Food Science.
Deliciously Diabetic is where I share my journey of taming my Type 2 Diabetes by eating fresh, delicious real food that also happens to be Low Carb.
I’m on a mission to help you do the same.
Because eating Low Carb is the easiest way I’ve found to manage my blood sugar without feeling deprived.
Because eating Low Carb need not be complicated or time consuming.
Because I love food! Especially Low Carb.
And Because I firmly believe you don’t have to sacrifice taste to be healthy, even if you’re diabetic, like me.
How Can Deliciously Diabetic Help YOU?
Deliciously Diabetic is dedicated to helping diabetics eat well by following a simple Low Carb approach to real food. It’s all about keeping things as easy as possible.
It’s where I share:
* My favourite fresh, easy Low Carb recipes.
* Variations for each recipe – including how to adapt for your carb-loving family.
* Tips and advice that have helped me manage my blood sugar without medication.
What makes Deliciously Diabetic different?
Unlike many other websites for diabetics, I am a food lover first and concerned with my blood sugar second. If it doesn’t taste amazing, I’m not interested.
While I find a Low Carb approach to be the easiest for me, I don’t believe in depriving myself. I also don’t believe in counting carbs, calories or anything else that takes away from the joy of eating.
Here’s what you won’t find on Deliciously Diabetic:
– counting carbs
– counting calories
– diets and restriction
– processed food
– low fat anything
– artificial sweeteners or other fake ingredients
– ketogenic recipes that are all cheese and no fresh veggies
– complex recipes with long ingredients lists
Who is behind Deliciously Diabetic?
Deliciously Diabetic was founded by Jules Clancy (that’s me!) and Amanda Ledger, who have been friends since we met at university in Sydney back in the early 1990s. We share a passion for all things food.
While neither of us is a doctor or practicing nutritionist, I (Jules) studied nutrition as part of my degree in Food Science.
I (Jules) was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes and later Type 2 Diabetes in 2015. After having success experimenting on myself with a Low Carb approach to manage my blood sugar without medication, I came up with the idea of creating a website to share my journey to help other people in a similar situation.
I mentioned the idea to Amanda who has a strong background in marketing and publishing and was super excited when she suggested we create it together.
And so Deliciously Diabetic was born.
