While 2021 wasn’t the best year we’ve ever lived, there were some wins: Defeat Diabetes launched (yay us!), type 2 diabetes remission was globally acknowledged as a ‘thing’, and Melbourne won the AFL final (DD founder Dr Brukner is still on a high).
One thing missing from this list is the love you showed for our low carb recipes. From Three Seed Bread to Baked Chicken Wings, you found food freedom with our dietitian-approved, nutritionist-developed recipes.
