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…

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.
