Thank you Jeannie for outlining it so well, what to eat and what not to eat. I am trying to get on the better side of this disease and I thank you and everyone here who are always so very willing to lend an ear and help. I was glad to see that it was real butter and not margerine or low fat or lite. I am thinking balsmic vinegar would be acceptable for salads? And dill pickles would be okay? And I wonder if the fat free chicken and beef broths are okay? I used a can of the fat free chicken broth and a box of frozen mixed veggies yesterday to make soup for lunch. I did find eating soup or salad with lunch and eating soup or salad with dinner did help keep me on track. Always open to any suggestions as far as meals or things that help keep us on track as far as eating as I find it so very hard to stay focused.
Oh thanks Jeannie,
Your tips as well as everyone who post here are so helpful! Good ideas and creative choices make it much easier if you have to eat out. I am waiting for the doctor to call with test results. And while I know it wont be joyous news, I am hoping for a little better result on my H1C test...( I may have that not quite right, but you know what I am speaking of). I like your friends idea of the apple diet. For anyone who is not aware I did hear of a site that is suppose to provide very good and reliable information regarding diabetes www.dlife.com I plan on checking the site out soon. Perhaps others are familiar with it already but if not it may be worth taking a look at. Hope everyone is having a good holiday season and making good eating choices. I am trying my hardest to stay focused and hope everyone here is having success in managing their diabetes also.
