Some Valentine’s Day Sweetness for My Sugar

V-day2014

There you go again thinking I’m talking about me and that man, Amos. No, I’m talking about some ways to have a sweet Valentine’s Day without messing with my diabetes. There is going to be candy, cakes and other treats available to me and I will have a hard time saying no, so I needed to look for some alternatives.

These Almond Stuffed Pears sound a bit exotic but I love that they are hearty yet good for me too.
