And have the time of their LIFE!

It has been one week since the annual South Beach Food and Wine Festival and right about now is when I wish that time machines were a real thing!

The South Beach Food and Wine Festival Grand Tasting Village was and is a massive event. There was no way I could have tasted everything! And although the tasting portion sizes are small, it is pretty easy to have a few bites and a few sips of wine and be set for the day. The Grand Tasting is a wonderful event with celebrity chef cooking demonstrations, bites from some of the top local restaurants and and endless amount of wine and spirits. Hats off to all of the Florida International University  volunteers (GO PANTHERS!) and the entire festival staff for helping to put on such an fun and delicious event!

The food was fantastic all around the chefs did an outstanding job – I was most impressed with the Dr.Pepper  burger from Airport Cafe  and the Coconut Curry from Malibu Farm was top notch. Great way to take two simple menu items and amplify them to next level!

As we know, I am diabetic using the Medtronic insulin pump. So for these events, what I have found to be useful for me is the dual wave bolus setting. Using this setting allows you to administer insulin now and throughout the course of the event. I used this setting and between all the standing and walking (and dancing) I did, plus the bites – my blood glucose was just fine!

So are we ready for SOBE WFF 2018 ?!
