Ok, I've been fighting this chest cold for some time and running high morning sugars as a result (high for me, 128). Anyway, I really outdid myself for Easter dinner yesterday. Had the whole family home, babies and grandkids, dogs and all! I not only had bunny cake (without the icing), I ate scalloped potatoes and peanut butter-graham cracker-chocolate dessert. I mean I did it all! Lots of protein, lamb, turkey and ham, lots of veggies, but waaaay more than my usual food plan.

This morning.... 108.

Go figure...?

Your dinner sounds fabulous!
 
It sounds like all that protein balanced out all those carbs to me- and there was a healthy amount of fat in there too. I know I must sound like a broken record by now- but strictly low carb makes my sugar run higher. Some nights, when I am not hungry, I'll have a couple of scrambled eggs (just to have some food for the metformin), go to bed in the 80's and wake up at 110. If I add a slice of low carb sprouted grain bread- I wake up in the low 90's- I'm not sure about peanut butter dessert- but that sure sounds good to me and I might be willing to try a little experiment-hehe.
 
I hope you're feeling better- my husband had a terrible hacking cough and cold last week, I'm hoping it passed me by.

Sandy,
You're not a broken record. You just keep reminding us that we are all different and react differently to our foods. I've been trying to lose more weight with the low starch food plan,(still quite a bit overweight) that's why I'm sticking with it most days. I have to admit, it's really difficult sometimes. I'm getting lots of fats and I'm having my fruit carbs so I'm not eliminating much else than the big time starches from the food plan and I have stopped losing weight.

Time to re-evaluate and start another food log. I probably have been cheating more than I think. Get busy and eat what's easy not what's smart! Thanks for your idea. You're probably right.
