In our family, and I would like to think in most families as well, we have got a lot to be grateful for. The love, laughter and oneness that’s shared are true blessings; especially in times of adversity or bad luck. When my nephew, Anthony, was younger, his mom fed him mashed carrots together with other healthy and mushy baby food. As he grew older, he developed a liking for sweet carrot cake recipe. Unfortunately, he also developed diabetes. The whole family was devastated at this turn of ill-health. But his mommy, a woman of powerful personality and faith, stood fast and dealt with this challenge. She diligently researched and prepared his diet each and every day till it was time for him to leave us. This sugar free carrot cake recipe was Anthony’s favorite.
