    Mouth watering to say the least, leaves one’s tastebuds wanting to do handstands, but, are they Diabetic friendly? Are there not some really awesome dishes that you can publish that are also Diabetic friendly on occasions? There are many Getaway readers that rely on the mundane recipe books for eating ideas, but how about Getaway encouraging readership by having a Diabetic section?
