Recipe – Oven Roasted Salmon with Fruit Salsa

Divabetic was inspired by the late R&B legend Luther Vandross, founded in 2005 by his long-time assistant, Max “Mr. Divabetic” Szadek.  Divabetic, a combination of the word “diabetic” with the letter “V” inserted for Vandross, evokes feelings of power and a positive attitude associated with the great divas Luther loved, like Patti LaBelle.
 
started Divabetic in 2003. I sold my first Divabetic t-shirt and donated the proceeds to different diabetes nonprofits until Divabetic became a nonprofit in 2005. 
 
I'll be promoting Divabetic's latest mystery podcast, "Tomorrow Is Not On The Menu" available for free on iTunes, BlogTalkRadio and Spotify. This show focuses on sugar addiction and the added sugar in our diets and dispels the myth that weight loss is the be-all and end-all to achieving better diabetes management. 
 
Brief Synopsis: The happy healthcare host, Mr. Divabetic, lands his to-die-for job as a caterer for the nation's hottest health guru, Wendy Wattage's Wellness Retreat on the Jersey Shore. Everything seems low pressure and low calorie until the body of the nasty food critic, Marilyn Macaroni, is found stabbed to death with one of Max's new chef knives. Now he's the prime suspect in a big, fat murder investigation! Can he and his team of friends, diabetes educators, and his nosey Italian mother, Mama Rose Marie, find the killer before the police arrive? Or will he be trading his fruit suit for coveralls with stripes? Weight loss murder never tasted so good.
 

Starring Mr. Divabetic, Best-Selling Author Tonya Kappes, Mama Rose Marie, Patricia Addie-Gentle RN, CDCES, Maryann Horst Nicolay MEd, NTDR, Kathie Dolgin aka 'High Voltage,' Seveda Williams, Catherine Schuller, Dave Jones, and Lorraine Brooks. Produced by Leisa Chester Weir. Special thanks to our colleague, the multi-talented Wendy Radford.

Divabetic Mystery Podcast's goals are:
  • Encourage people with diabetes to problem-solve issues related to their self-care like their favorite TV detectives
  • (write things down, search for clues and share information with your healthcare collaborators and ask questions)
  • Manage diabetes as a team rather than go it alone
  • Make learning about diabetes fun and interesting
 
This year, Divabetic is talking about re-framing the way we look at 'mistakes" as "discoveries" rather than "regrets." Our first podcast, of the year, features guest Rachel Zinman, a yoga instructor and author living with LADA. Rachel shares a Guided Meditation about Compassion. It's our 6th consecutive year of partnering with Rachel at the start of the New Year to encourage listeners to reset with a fresh, clear mindset about managing their diabetes.

This is the Happy Diabetic Kitchen--- In this episode, we will hear from some of my very good friends in the diabetic community who will share their personal goals for the New Year! So, get ready! We are stepping into the New Year together exploring ideas for a happy healthy lifestyle way of eating!

It’s time to gather your thoughts, journals and goals for a New Year’s refresh.

As someone who’s trying to live my best diabetic life, New Year’s is an opportunity to reset, regroup, and revitalize.

I want to have revolution of goals and ideas… not a revolt! Keep an open mind… Stay open to possibilities of trying something new.

That said, it’s best to get a head start on your New Year’s resolutions now.

It just isn’t going to happen. But, if you stand firm in actually sticking to your resolutions this year.

So, whether you want to get back on that fitness grind, sharpen certain skills or be more productive, we have invited some amazing folks who live in the diabetic space every day to tell you about their list of the top New Year’s resolutions to give you inspiration for 2023.

I think it will inspire you…

Inspired by his former boss, Luther Vandross, who suffered in silence with his diabetes, Max founded Divabetic to encourage women and their families to accept a diabetes diagnosis boldly, with a Glam More, Fear Less attitude. With a background in entertainment and armed with a team of diabetes health and wellness educators, fashionistas.

Mr. Divabetic’s enthusiasm is infectious, and you can follow him on Twitter, Facebook, and his world-famous blog for diabetes news, updates, and all things pop culture.

“I’m on a mission to change attitudes in those affected by diabetes to stay healthy and upbeat about their care so they can continue to enjoy the glamorous life.” - Max Szadek
