Healthy Swaps-Pita Pizza

The ultimate guide to having your cake and eating it too (continued).

Very-thin-crust pizza is very hip these days, but you can make your own, healthier version at home. Some people just don't find whole-wheat pizza crusts to be palatable (keep looking, though –– better tasting whole-grain products are coming out as fast as food scientists can develop them).

An update on NightScout. When we last left, I was so frustrated with it that I was about ready to march right up to that cloud (if I could find the right one) and give someone or something a piece of my mind. Now … I wanna marry it! And all it took was a $3.50 cable. The streaming connection to Charlie’s Dexcom has been nearly flawless since receiving our new cable in the mail and I...
