“I know firsthand how important a DFF can be,” said Sherri Shepherd, co-host of “The View,” and national spokesperson for the Dreamfields DFF program. “Since I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 2007, I’ve been fortunate to have two DFFs in my life — my son Jeffrey and my trainer, ‘The Evil One.’ They’ve inspired me to lose 40 lbs, and I’m keeping the weight off and controlling my blood sugar with exercise and diabetes-friendly foods like Dreamfields pasta.”
By visiting www.diabetesfriendsforever.com, individuals may submit a story about the person or persons who help them live the diabetes lifestyle. Nineteen DFFs and their nominators will be awarded cash prizes ranging from $2,000 to $5,000 each and/or a free case of Dreamfields pasta.
Made from durum wheat semolina, Dreamfields tastes like traditional pasta, but contains twice the fiber, only 5 grams of digestible carbohydrates and has a 65% lower glycemic index. It also contains inulin; a 100% natural prebiotic fiber that helps promote healthy digestion.
