Imagine being served a scrumptious chocolate cake at a birthday party after a type 2 diabetes diagnosis. Do you reach for a slice or politely say, “no thank you”?
Well, according to Katzenellenbogen, a dietician and nutritionist based in Johannesburg, there’s nothing wrong with a diabetic indulging in the odd cheat meal – as long as you follow a balanced diet. All you have to do is leave out the carbohydrate component of your daily meal plan to give in to your sweet tooth and enjoy a carbohydrate-rich dessert such as cake.

Recipe Of The Week: Waffles
There is little to beat a whole‑food waffle, served with Farmhouse Ice‑cream and honey. Alternatively, you may serve waffles with a variety of healthy toppings.
