Who says it's all just idle chatter? We PWDs (people with diabetes) are finding new and different ways to use Social Media to impact our lives every day.
The latest campaign is a community-wide diabetes-friendly recipe exchange called D-Feast Friday, masterminded by D-bloggers Lorraine (Mom of Caleb), Elizabeth Arnold, Kelly Kunik, "Bittersweet" Karen and a few others. Not long ago, they started tweeting pictures of what they were making for dinner, then in response to queries, cross-posting the recipes, and soon came the idea to "formalize" the effort.
NEWSFLASH: FDA Clears Dexcom Share Direct
Dexcom gets regulatory approval of its 'on-the-go' mobile apps for CGM data-sharing.
Snail Uses Insulin to Poison Fish

A New Square Patch Insulin Pump
TouchéMedical's new Bluetooth-enabled patch pump is supposedly the world's smallest and cheapest.
btw, I should mention that the D-Feast founders have a penchant for anything containing bacon / facon, and also cupcakes. (Hey, we have diabetes, but we're not dead yet!)
Now here comes the 'never-say-never' part for me: I'm pretty sure at some point in my blogging career, I swore I'd never post recipes. But one shouldn't ever swear. Finding good food choices is so critical to managing this disease, that I ought to be riding high on the recipe wagon.
There are loads of recipes to choose from at the DiabeticConnect community site, btw. And one of my other personal favorite sources is BigOven.com, which I also subscribe to on my iPhone. As a little preview of D-Feast, here's a link to one of my best numbers from BigOven: Basque Chicken. My family likes it with the chorizo and olives — delicious and very low-carb, sans the rice.
Now go out and find something yummy to share next Friday, when it's time for the whole D-community to get their cook on!
