Delicious Diabetic Christmas Cookie Recipes You’ll Love
I always make sure healthy options are present during a Christmas feast. For Christmas menus with a lot of different kinds of meat, greener dishes should be there for a proper balance. Now that we’re talking desserts and treats, I have some great sugar-free and low-sugar diabetic Christmas cookie recipes for you!
We have to remember sugar is not the only thing diabetics should be wary of. If you’re diabetic, cholesterol and fat levels are monitored too.

We’re not leaving anyone out this Christmas!
