Polish Diet (Chapter 4, “My Diabetic Soul”

  “…The Polish diet is very bland yet healthy and safe as far as calories are concerned. Kielbasa is boiled, peirogis are boiled, chicken is boiled for soup or typically baked, beets are boiled for burak zupa (beet soup), and you already know about the cabbage. It took me a long time as an adult to adjust my taste buds to spicy foods. Fried foods were unavailable in my mother’s house. It was very rare that I indulged eating fried foods if only because I did not like them. Therefore, through my Polish upbringing, my diabetes and I have had a healthy start in life! I consider this factor as not only a great advantage, but a blessing as well.”  A. K. Buckroth
