Hi! My name is Amanda. I am 16 years old and I live in New York. I love to sing and bake and I love food!
I was diagnosed with Type I diabetes on April 26, 2013 and my life was completely changed forever.
Things were scary at first.
My whole lifestyle changed. I have to count carbs, give insulin, and be very careful of what I eat.
On top of it, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease a few weeks later. You could say that things were turned upside down.
I realized that although I had these two diseases and things would be different, I was going to be okay; things didn’t need to be bad.
The doctors said I could still eat the things I loved and that I could still bake, but there was still a problem: knowing carbs and making things gluten-free.
It was then that decided I wanted to make a blog for people like me; I want to share my experiences and to help satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth!
You’re not alone.
