For the past month even under stress my numbers have been between 105 and 118.  That is really good for me especially with the stress factor.  🙂

Premier Protein Helps keep my blood sugars on track


So I have been using Premier Protein   a few months now and I have noticed a big difference in my blood sugar numbers.  They are so much lower.  I feel like I have finally found a product that can really help esp with in between snack or when I am in a big hurry.  I love this product.  I feel like I could brag about it often because I want others to know the things that help me with my diabetes.

With Shakes and Bars the carbs being so low and protein so high they are perfect.  So many choices in flavors and as you can tell with me posting the smoothies I really love experimenting with different ideas.   Costco by far has them for the best price for bars and shakes but they sell them everywhere.  I know I have Canada readers who have posted they sell them their as well.  Give them a try and test to see if it makes a difference with your blood sugars then leave a comment below and let me know.

Premier protein is also good for weight loss and when using a keto diet because it is very low in carbs.

Happy August!

Premier Protein is going to be my side kick!!

I am so Excited to announce I will be working with @PremierProtein and sharing all the ways I use my favorite protein shake on the go and in recipes. Stay tuned for plenty of delicious and nutritious posts. Since I have Diabetes many of the items I create will be made with diabetes in mind.   #TheDayisYours #sponsored #livingwithdiabetes #premierprotein
