Because it's winter break and I've had some more free time than usual, I've been in the mood to cook and bake.  I was looking for recipes for brownies and pies, but realized how high in sugar and carbohydrates desserts can be.  Making sure that foods are low in sugar and carbs is extremely important for diabetics because it affects how much insulin they need to give themselves.  Also, consuming large amounts of sweets can cause a spike in blood sugar levels.
