Hi Paula. I just joined your Diabetes in a New Light website. I lost my Mother at 83 to diabetes and my Grandmother prior to that. My Mom fought this disease with a vengeance and led a wonderful life. She loved your cooking show, and we would watch it together all the time. She felt terrible when she found out you got diabetes. I want to applaud you for all that you are doing to battle this disease. One suggestion for your new website. Can they add the Pinterest logo to your recipes so I can Pin them for others to see? Just want to keep the good news flowing. Thanks Paula, Bobby, and Jamie.

This still has 29 grams of carbs. Carbs are sugar. And low fat dairy is higher in sugar than regular, and the fat is not bad for you. There is nothing healthy about this recipe. Use almond flour, stevia for sweetener and regular buttermilk. And don't use canola oil - it's toxic crap. Use coconut oil instead.
