Don’t Read This Hungry
Taking a cue from Adam Brown’s recent post, write a post documenting what you eat in a day! Feel free to add links to recommended recipes/shops/whatever. Make it an ideal day or a come-as-you-are day – no judgments either way. (Thank you, Katy of Bigfoot Child Have Diabetes for this topic.)
I like to think that I have the self control to always eat what will make my diabetes easier to manage/stabilize. However, I am not that kind of person. I don’t buy ice cream to keep in the house because I have no self-control, therefore ice cream stands are my favorite. Since I have no self-control, I work really hard to keep healthier foods around. Sometimes I’m successful, sometimes I’m not. Here’s a “day.” (I’ve been sick this week so this is a combination of days, which might look like a real day on a healthy day.)
Here are a few other tid-bits you might find important/interesting.This is NOT a typical day for me, just examples of how I like to eat. I try to eat a well-rounded, balanced diet. I can get pretty bored with foods, so I vary from day to day. If you have questions about any of the foods I’ve mentioned, don’t hesitate to ask. If you have questions about how these food affect my blood sugars, then I can’t really answer your questions. I do try to pay attention, but I don’t keep enough logs or data to know exactly how any food affects me. This is what works for me, and I hope that you have things that work for you. I think that cookbooks and Pinterest are the greatest things in the world to keep variety in my diet.
Here is what other people are eating!
