My last few posts have discussed diabetes in detail so I thought today I would give you all a relevant freebie which is not quite so information intensive. Plus, my last post was 8 Ways to Manage Diabetes with a Healthy Diet so I thought that now would be the perfect time to give this freebie away. The freebie is an ebook that I put together entitled 500 Delicious Diabetic Recipes. The ebook does exactly what it says, providing readers with 500 (well 515 actually) diabetic recipes. Whatever you want to eat there should be a recipe for you here, whether it be beef, chicken, pasta, rice, cookies or cakes.
