The much touted compound resveratrol shows some promise as a future treatment for type 2 diabetes, but drinking wine or taking resveratrol supplements isn’t likely to do diabetic people much good, researchers say. Resveratrol, found in red wine, was found to lower blood sugar levels and improve insulin levels when injected directly into the brains of mice fed very high-calorie diets in a study conducted by researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW).

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
