Since there is a fungus link to diabetes, I am surprised that these recipes call for sugar and peanuts. Both are universally contaminated with fungus and fuel fungal overgrowth in the body which is direct correlation of why people have type II diabetes. I am also surprised that artificial sweeteners are even mentioned as something good.

Please note that particular sugar replacements such as Splenda, Nutrasweet, Aspartame, are dangeous chemicals and should be avoided as such. Xylitol & Stevia are wonderful sugar replacements as is Agave. Agave does have the calories and carbs but is a healthy sweetener. Coconut oil is a fat burner and can replace many of the oils that are treated with insecticides unless labeled certified organic. Unsalted butter mixed with the coconut oil in baking gives a wonderful flavorful addition to baked goods. Also, applesauce can be replaced for 1/2 if not all of the oil in many baking recipes. It's a little trial and error but a google search will confirm. Redmond Salt is a wonderful natural salt without the toxic processing that many salts incur.

I am shocked at the amount of sugar used in the Fudgy Chocolate Brownies (Snack). That is 1 1/2 c granulated sugar and 1 c confectioners sugar in the frosting. I NEVER intend to try this recipe. It would drive my sugar count WAY UP! What are you thinking???

One way to cut down on sugar is to replace 1/2 of the sugar called for in a recipe with non-fat powdered milk. I've used it in all sorts of recipes (except cheesecakes) and the final product is always excellent.

On Wednesday's segment, Kristi said something about recipes being available on the website. I want the Thai Peanut Salad recipe. Where is it on the site? (I'm new to this) Thanks.

I understand the whole idea about keeping your sugars down but I have a bit of a problem with the use of Splenda in the chocolate chip recipe. I haven't heard many "good" things about the stuff.

Thank you so much for this resource. My husband and I both need to watch our sugars, and it is so unfamiliar to me! I really needed this help.

really appreciated this spot as I see myself in the danger zone that & perhaps the supplements could really keep me out of the diabetic nightmare my husband is in

Prevention Magazine, and their suggestions of texts available, was a big part of my mother's reading and lifestyle. She was taken far too early from us last year, but she set a gift subscription blessing to our family every year. I loved watching the recipes today and will pass them on to my friends.

Please note: I accidently placed "Flag as inappropriate" on the previous response. I do not know how to get it off. When I received my e-mail to allow us access and I was trying to respond to complete setting it up I accidently clicked on this and now I can't get it to go away. What do I do? Thanks, Marvin Credle

Thanks for following up and sending this to my wife and I. She has Type 2 Diabetes and we are having a hard time trying to control her blood sugars. We've purchased several books on planning meals for diabetics, but they seem hard to keep up with or have ingredients we normally do not have. Looking forward to trying some of these. V/R, Marvin Credle
