Learn more about carbs: the good, the bad, and which ones type 1 diabetics should eat (if they so choose).
We’ve talked a lot about carbs, low carb, processed carbs, and even zero carb on this podcast, but we haven’t taken the time to talk about what many people call “good carbs” versus “bad carbs”, as if labeling a carbohydrate makes it better or worse for you.
Wins & Fails
Colleen's Win: I was a guest on the Coach Maylen podcast with a fellow T1D who works for Tandem! We'll link to the episode here when it's released.
Jessie's Fail: Jessie hasn't been taking enough time for herself while at college.
Hack or Tip of the Week
When in doubt, shop the perimeter of the grocery store. That's where the fresh, healthy food lives.
The spotlight this week is on Laura, a fellow T1D Instagrammer with the handle @beansbetes. She’s had T1D for 22 years and wears the Omnipod and Dexcom. Laura’s done a great job of raising awareness by talking about the issues she’s faced to help all T1Ds learn from them. You can find blog posts and recipes on her website, beansbetes.com.
