I was recently diagnosed and am having a hard time dealing with not knowing what to eat, even though my dietician gave me plenty of information and I have found plenty of useful information on this site.
I guess my biggest problem is family events. My family is constantly having huge get togethers and they are chefs so they cook elaborate meals, appetizers, desserts...well, none of which I can eat and I feel left out most of the time. I never want to go anymore because its always awkward going into the kitchen full of people and make my own food.
Is there anything I can prepare ahead of time?? And how do I explain to my family about all of this...they are always asking me questions and I'm never sure how to answer their barrage of questions.
