    Now that we have to count carbs for EVERYTHING with T1d in the house, we L.O.V.E. it when recipes include the “nutritional information”. Any chance you can start including that when you share recipes? Thanks for your consideration!

      Hi, Beth! While we understand your interest in counting carbs, at this time we focus on whole, real foods and currently do not break down the calorie content for our recipes. You can get further help with online resources like ‘My Fitness Pal.’ We hope you will enjoy them all the same!
