The miracle cheese:
New favored breakfast = english muffin (no panic–it whole wheat; wait, what? Still carbs?) + butter + honey (!) + obligatory milky black tea/stevia. This schoolday breakfast = superspike. So big spike, maybe make bad impression school nurse.
7AM 85, english muffin combo. 10:30AM 275.
7:30AM 90, english muffin combo. 10:30AM 231.
etc. every school day forever.
Today some science. Bigfoot ask Bubs eat cheese slice after english muffin combo. One slice provolone cheese. Result:
7AM 79, english muffin combo. 10:30AM 81. School nurse BG email take Bigfoot fucking breath away.
This not medical advice. Maybe always add cheese? Unless high cholesterol problem. Bigfoot, Bigfoot mother, sister, grandmother, both sons, all high HDL cholesterol. Maybe = natural cheese protection?
One other english muffin news. Grocery store notice “Light” whole wheat Thomas’s english muffin. Higher carb (26g CHO) than plain whole wheat Thomas’s english muffin (23g CHO)! This paradigm “Light” give Bigfoot gross Calorie King feeling, pleated pants, leather belt ostentatious mark for old waist size, waggle finger, “Carbs matter, but calories are king!”
The dessert thing:
Realize/forget this over and over and over, but perhaps suckiest workaday part this adventure = high BG bedtime. Because high BG = correct, stay awake, see if lower, if not lower, correct, stay awake…etc. forever til magical hour 4:30AM.
So. If *certain* dessert going to happen, and in correct phase of realize/forget cycle, Bigfoot try make happen before dinner. Because even if belly full broccoli/tempeh/quinoa/chia/kale, sure able cram in dessert. So. Once dessert foregone conclusion, might as well eat dessert ASAP, give ample time work out kinks before mommy zombify.
