Diabetes – The Gourmet Cupboard

Friday, April 5, 2013

There are a lot of independent representatives selling food products on the internet. I even sell one of them-but as a diabetic
I can not go near their products anymore. Before I was diagnosed I ordered from all of them at one time or another and the stuff is REALLY good—however— There are only a few places that I can buy from these days from the independent reps and most of those companies have maybe one or two products suited to diabetics-that company is called The Gourmet Cupboard. They have lots of sugarless and low sugar items for sale. There is even a separate category you can click so you do not get tempted by all the other luscious food mixes they have. Of course if you click on any of the items you will be able to check out the nutritional values! The mixes are really easy to prepare and you do not have to add a whole bunch of extra ingredients to most of them (a big plus in my book).

My favorites, SO FAR, are:

The Diabetic Friendly Carrot Souffle (I have bought and made this 3 times so far)
Paw Paw’s Sugar Free Chocolate Pie/Cheesecake (I made the cheesecake)
Sugar Free Hot Chocolate
Sugar Free Key Lime Pie

I have not exactly been following the directions (so what else is new) but the above are beyond delicious and I did not even use a pie crust for the pies! The Diabetic Friendly Sweet Green Beans was a bit too sweet for my taste but then again-if I bothered to really follow directions!! Eventually I will be ordering the Mexican Meatloaf and re ordering all the above especially the Carrot Souffle. I will also be buying the Avocado Soup and the Squash Casserole. Two of their coffees that I looked at and which I am dying to try have very low carbs, sugar-the Caramel Cream Coffee and the Macadamia Nut Coffee.

My favorite independent rep for The Gourmet Cupboard is Donna Roucoulet. She will be more then happy to help you with suggestions or anything other questions you may have.

That's great that there are specific companies that caters to the needs of people who are dealing with diabetes.

I have a priest friend who also have diabetes and he find it very hard to find the foods that would not affect his health condition, it's easier to find access to things here in the US than from the country where I came from.

It is really great that nowadays, people with diabetes are being protected and taken care of. It's hard having diabetes, I watch my mom prick her fingers every morning, watch her eat very little food and it's hard for me to see that she's not enjoying life as she used to.

it is really nice for you to share your ways on eating healthy while you are a diabetic person. it doesn't mean that you can stop eating now, however through your process you can still eat them without worrying too much

It used to be a struggle to find foods my dad could have that he enjoyed. I love that they have come a long way in flavor. I would love the Sugar Free Key Lime Pie. I will share this with my Aunt, she will love finding something she can have without sneaking it.

I have found more and more companies are offering products for people that are diabetic. I think it is great to have more options available especially if you are on a strict diet.

This is a good guide. Lots of health benefits on foods.

The carrot soufflé sounds really good though. I am not a fan of cheesecake and my husband and I are also watching out sugar intake. Both his mom and my grandma had diabetes so we want to take care of our health and prevent diabetes as possible. And it is nice these days that there companies out there that do cater for those people with specific diet plan.

Is this only available in the US? I would like to recommend this to a friend of mine but he's over in the Philippines hehehe.
