It’s Diabetes Blog Week Day Two!
I can’t handle today’s topic (mental health) so I’m taking a wild card. My favorite wild card—the food one.
Some people track every bite they eat, some might not remember at lunch time what they had for breakfast or if they even had breakfast. For one day, document everything you or your loved one with diabetes eats and drinks. The good, the bad, the ugly, the proud, the ashamed, the…whatever.
7AM. Fasting BG 123 mg/dL. I licked the yogurt spoon in my son’s parfait bowl.
9AM. Pancake PB&J. This is my favorite thing. It is almond flour pancakes sandwiching raspberry jam and peanut butter. I also had black tea.
1PM. 96 mg/dL. Collard wrap with hummus, feta, olives, parsley. And a Diet Coke.
And about a cup of berries left on the table from other people’s breakfast with a glob (1/2 cup?) of yogurt.
3PM: 168 mg/dL. I was not at all hungry but nonetheless ate the cores from the boys’ apples.
4-5PM. Fizzy water.
5PM: 104 mg/dL. Cheese and a pickle.
6:30pm. Cheeseburger, salad, 1/2 of a hard cider.
7pm. Almond buter cup. Dogs must not eat chocolate.
