DBW #1 Change the World (change my grocery list)

Happy Diabetes Blog Week.


Let’s kick off Diabetes Blog Week by talking about the diabetes causes and issues that really get us fired up. Are you passionate about 504 plans and school safety? Do diabetes misconceptions irk you? Do you fight for CGM coverage for Medicare patients, SDP funding, or test strip accuracy? Do you work hard at creating diabetes connections and bringing support? Whether or not you “formally” advocate for any cause, share the issues that are important to you. (Thanks go out to Kim of Texting my Pancreas for inspiring this topic.)

Instant overwhelm. Listening part of brain shut down. If wear hat, would pull down over eyes. La la la la la. Could be gallbladder surgery concurrent final exam followed by wretched cold with fever or could just be Bigfoot baseline-level myopic. Frank with self: no way change world. Today, largest change possible is change grocery list.


Change your list, change your life. Blue dot = recipe.

Not being facetious. And apologies for whine. But. So sick of diabetes. SO sick of celiac disease. Really honestly truly feels like best effort: make medium-nice dinner. Maybe cells absorb nutrients, change world next week. Or make different salad dressing next week. A start.

Blue dots:

The broccoli salad recipe is this. Make a ton. It’s great the next day and the next day.

The miso-tahini sauce is this with scallions added and some of the water subtracted.

Green potato salad is a few (1 per person) yukon gold potatoes (boiled) + one ton arugula + 1/4 red onion, minced + Veganaise + lemon. Some people like this the next day. Not me.

Melon with limes is a honeydew melon, cut into chunks in the morning, doused with lime juice (approximately 3 limes per melon) and refrigerated for the whole day or longer.

    Broccoli recipe looks fantastic. Just printed it out. I love the sound of your meals! I’d love to come over every night, diabetes and celiac nor not!

    I want to have a whine myself. Shoulder & neck pain for months, foot pain/plantar fasciitis for years, and allergies/cough/cold kicking my butt for what feels like weeks now. Add diabetes on top of that??? PPFFFTTTTT!!!!!! OK, rant over. For now. (and HUGS to you! I know how it feels, in my own way of things 🙂 )

      In my view, me having a cold is equal to or, maybe, even worse than all of that. Wahhhhhhh.

      : )

    You had a very full plate before the gall bladder surgery and now a cold. Whine all you want. Whine, whine, whine–especially as long as you bring smiles to our faces and laughs to our bellies while you do it. Hope you’re feeling better soon:-)

    You are passionate about good food, and that I love. I hear ya on being sick of the diabetes-life rigramole.

    Completely off-topic, but you used my favorite word! “Facetious”! The only word that uses all of the full-time vowels, in order (a,e,i,o,u).

    Yes, yes, always yes. You are right. I am always too tired to change the world 🙂
