YAAS not only is November thee snappin turn-up {B-Day}
month for Diva Snap it is also Diabetes Awareness Month, and if you have been snappin with Diva Snap from day one you already know that I have been bless with "Sweet D".  So of course we have to show some support.

While some research on what we can do to snap about  spreading Diabetes awareness...  I came across some good old snappin  on how D.J. Spinderella, member of the iconic hip-hop group Salt-n-Pepa, have start up a movement to help ‘Stop Diabetes”… Check her out on the inside.

Now that you here to this point....  Check out the snappin that Spinderella has going on with putting out a cookbook recipe to prevent "Sweet D"... Report "Stop Diabetes" via Diabetes Forecast:

"While she’s still spinning music, DJ Spinderella (aka Deidra Roper) is no longer spinning her wheels when it comes to getting the right information to help her family members who have diabetes. Spinderella has personally seen the severe consequences diabetes has on not only the person with the disease, but an entire family. Her own mother passed away from complications of diabetes, and now she watches her brother and young nephew live with the disease every day. For her family and millions of others, Spinderella is truly passionate about joining the movement to Stop Diabetes®.

Spinderella wants the public to know that diabetes doesn’t have to conquer you. Living a healthy, active lifestyle, she stresses, is key. With a sensible diet and exercise, you can take charge of your diabetes and help prevent its deadly complications. For those at risk for type 2 diabetes, you can even prevent or delay the disease.

Whether on tour, meeting her fans or just hanging out at home with her family, Spinderella is committed to spreading this message across the country and ending diabetes once and for all by starting up a cookbook recipe"…  See here the  highlights about it all:

Your family has been affected by diabetes,which many people can relate to. Would you share some of that history?

Diabetes wasn’t something I was really aware of until my mother had it. I do remember, though, that both grandmothers had diabetes, and I remember them taking their insulin. My brother has had diabetes for 20 years now, and my nephew, his 15-year-old son, also has diabetes.
When my mother was trying to manage her diabetes, I didn’t know where to turn. I felt helpless in assisting her. In essence, I was really lost.

When your family members were diagnosed, what were some of your first concerns in terms of helping them?

After my mother passed away from complications of diabetes, I undertook a lot of research to make sure I could share the right information with my brother and nephew. What I realized was that even if you have diabetes, you can have a healthy lifestyle, and the quality of your life can be improved.

“Even if you have diabetes, you can have a healthy lifestyle and the quality of your life can be improved.DJ Spinderella, hip-hop pioneer”

“ I had to look at myself as well. I began gathering cookbooks and other resources so we could change things up. Being proactive made the difference. I’m still in the learning process. I also learned that it is important not to be quiet about your diabetes—whenever you can share about it, it can make a difference.”

What’s your best piece of advice for people who love and care for friends and family members with diabetes?

If you are a direct caregiver, you are spending a lot of time with your loved one, so make sure you know what you need to know. Empower yourself and be proactive in the kitchen. Be as strong as you can. It won’t always be perfect. It can be done. You are not doing this alone. Always have hope.

So, the big America Gets CookingSM to Stop Diabetes® question: What’s it like in the Spinderella kitchen? What are you usually whipping up for yourself?

I love lots of fruits and veggies, but I still eat a lot of cheese. I know I’ll have to curb that one! I love Asian food. I make a mean chicken lettuce wrap with a fantastic ginger soy dip. Oooh, it’s so good, I can taste it right now!.”
