Messy as can be, chilli dogs were good and potato soup,I loved that. A bland so called vanilla pudding, sweet but no taste of vanilla i n it.French fries by the ton. I have been cutting back on how many I eat of them as they can do a number on my blood sugar. We diabetics here are left to sink or swim in regard to some foods so we have to monitor foods and cut back or leave out so we keep iin control of our blood sugar.Alot dont andjust increase their insulin.Im on diabetic metformin so do not increase anything just decrease how mujch I eat or what I eat. If they do not like diabetics why do they let u s come here to stay as there are many of us in the population here.They calim that all canned fruit they serve are water packed. But ev idence shows most times thepeaches are in a sugary syrup which you know doggonede well is notwater packed

This has made me so mad from reading this. I can not stand how they treat some people. You should eat all that you want to eat and not have to leave some food on your plate just because they gave it to you and it could harm you.

we have complained to the o mnbudman for retirement centers and they told my son that these places just simply do understand diabetes at all andthey refused to work wth the omsbudm an but by the same token we are now getting better meals than before.

Can't they feed you a separate meal for diabetics? It doesn't seem fair to put something in front of you that you can't have. :(

@Hatley Well that's a real shame. I would think that health would come first, but I guess you're in this for yourself. Thank goodness you know how to take care of yourself!

This reminds me of a chili burger I love to order at the Pantry which is a local favorite restaurant. I haven't been there in ages. They have home made fries with it and it is delicious. The chili is home made too. So tasty. I don't know what I am going to do if the doctor tells me I am diabetic.

What a waste of food when people leave some on their plate because it is the wrong food for them. They should have a nutritionist on place to help them choosing the right food for the right person.

Just eat what you know will not harm you and leave the rest behind.
