I realize I'm a little late joining the Ultimate Blog Party but I guess better late than never! I haven't been able to get their cute logo to load but I'm working on it. The Ultimate Blog Party is hosted by 5 minutes for mom & the title will take you to her blog where all the participating blogs are listed. There are 1000's of them listed now!
My name is Barb Gary and I've been blogging for about a year & a half now. I divorced after 25 years of marriage & I haven't looked back! I'm enjoying being unattached again! I also am a Powerseller on ebay (link at left) where we have a lot of household items at lower prices. Come visit our (sons & me) ebay store. I named this blog Diabetic Snacker because I'm now on a hypoglycemic type daily meal plan of 1200 calories with 3 meals & about 6 snacks a day to keep my blood sugar levels steady. It's working great but I'm snacking all of the time! So the diabetic snacker.
I have many health related issues which I've discussed on this blog before but the main one that is food blog related; type 2 diabetes.
So this foodie blog is all about food just like all the other blogs only I have to try to healthify up some of my recipes. It's a bit more challenging but thank goodness they invented Splenda! It's my substitue sugar of choice because it tastes great & has no calories! Sugar free cupcakes here I come!
If you're new here I'd love to have more followers, email or rss subscribers so feel free to sign up. I'm new to twitter & facebook & haven't quite worked out the system yet but I did join so that's a start.
Oh yeah, just so readers know I don't think I've mentioned it but I am legally blind. That's right I have very low vision completely blind in one eye & the other is 2/200. I say this because it's the main reason I don't have many pictures on my blog. I love pictures but it's rather difficult for me to take them & make them great. So a lot of times I post hints, tips or recipes without a picture or using a stock photo. With all the wonderful blogs out there in cyberspace I could never take a picture that would compare to those!
I love food blogging! I'm an "oldie" (53), with 2 grown boys and one of them has now become our full time cook here at home. The meals have improved a lot! I'm sort of his soux chef now so I don't have much to do in the kitchen anymore execpt make my diabetes friendly snacks and desserts which I love doing!
I worked at RCA for 14 years and all my life before that. I'm retired now and I love just visiting other food blog websites and leaving comments. I've been entering a lot of contests lately but I haven't won a thing yet!
Anyway, that's my story & I hope you'll come back and visit sometime. I'd love to have ya! I'm also accepting guest posts so if you have a mom blog, money saving blog,food blog or diabetes blog email me! Also if you have a food blog go to my McLinky page and submit your blog to my blogroll! I suscribe now to over 1600 food blogs in my rss google reader & I love reading all the new updated food news every day.
