Groundhog Lunch

The most exciting part of this lunch, obvsly, is the new size for the carbalicious Larabar. I hope this size isn’t a passing fancy or Halloween phenomenon.

Same lunch over and over and over. One day maybe nostalgic for? Thing so tired of now shortly become cherished memory. Also always so curious what other children pack in lunch. Please note: Bigfoot realize this lunch nothing brag about.

Bigfoot try take break Facebook until 2013, but too much miss diabetes information. Facebook break last approx. 17 hours.

    Also always curious about what people pack for lunch. My T1D son (age 12, diagnosed in January) gets about 60 carbs for lunch–it’s always greek yogurt, fruit, cheese stick + salami wrap (what is it with the salami?!), and salty snack (popcorn, tortilla chip, cracker). Always. Yay.

      I was going to say that I *wish* this lunch included Greek yogurt. I consider it diabetes’s perfect food. This is making me hungry!

    MMm… looks good! When I was a kid I would have died and gone to heaven if my mom would have given me one of those cheeses that you get to unwrap. Of course now that I’m an adult and do the shopping, I could buy them if I wanted, but I don’t bother. It was only the unattainabilty that made them so attractive.

      You’re right–they’re cute but not so delicious UNLESS one comes back from school, all warm and flabby. THAT is worth attaining.

    that is a delightful lunch! i have nothing exciting to offer. my kid eats in the cafeteria, which provides carb counts. 4/5 days a week she eats a sandwich anyway, even though they have very delicious food options, including a vegetarian one every day. sigh.

      this sounds like private school.

    I pack this every day with 60 carbs. Organic chocolate milk, Babel cheese, half a sandwich on Rudi’s bread, half an apple, and crunchies of some sort.

    Every. Single. Day.

    when i decided i wasn’t ready for a facebook break, i started using stay focusd. it’s a free program for google chrome (which i actually downloaded just so i could get stayfocusd) that will block you from certain sites after a set limit of time each 24 hour period. they have recommendations but you choose which sites, and also how much time each day. and you can adjust the amount of time, just not after you’ve already reached your limit for the day 🙂 no “just one more minute!” that turns into hours. it’s good cuz you can indulge/stay connected but less frittering, especially late at night. make it actually count. of course, sometimes i still hit my time limit for the day and then just open up firefox… but it helps at least.

    I pack almost the exact same lunch for myself every day (not the same as Bubs, you know what I mean). It just makes it so much easier to carb count. Once it works once, you don’t want to mess with a good thing.

    I think you can brag about this lunch, because it is perfect for Bubs. The granola bar, crackers and PB in lieu of a sandwich, snap peas for green veggie, cheese, salami and booty things that Bubs particularly enjoys. Our DD not at all hungry for lunch and will eat 25 or 30 grams only, will throw out if I pack more. Her lunch a pared-down version of Bub’s, granola bar (will only eat special K, can’t interest her in healthier version), apple, pack of petite carrots, one cheese stick. At Bub’s age it was PB&J on whole wheat white bread, banana and cheese-its or Pringles low fat potato chips. It’s good that Bub’s eats healthier food. After sending to diabetes camp (from which she came home early in three days) and tasting white bread for the first time, she refused to eat brown bread ever again, hence the whole wheat white bread…..
