Diabetic-Friendly Thanksgiving

The holidays can be tough to navigate for any health-conscious Jane or Joe – but they’re especially tricky for diabetics. Between Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the bevy of December holidays, there will be sweets around every corner. While it’s important to enjoy time spent with family and friends on these special occasions, it’s equally important to stick to your nutritional guns.
