I have to add my .02 here- I just spent the better part of last week in and out of the hospital with severe dehydration, a kidney infection, a bladder infection, a middle ear infection- and who knows what else. For the few meals I was there, I was served up an unbelievable amount of carbs- for example:
Breakfast = orange juice ( I was not low!); pancakes with margarine and syrup; cereal with milk; and some canned fruit
Dinner = macaroni and cheese; peas, white bread; 1/2 cup of head lettuce 'salad'; jello; milk (no meat bec I am a vegetarian!)
I was almost dead- but I inisisted on speaking to the 'diabetic' expert dietitian- when I pointed out that I generally eat 1-2 proteins; 1-2 non-starchy carbs; and a small mount of heart healthy fat at each of my meals- I was told that I was being given ADA standard meals and that I should eat up- I told the guy that a meal like that would drive my BG up over 200 and he looked me in the eye and told me that I should be on MORE medicine so that I could eat a nice normal meal.
I had my husband smuggle in Boost drinks and some nice salads after that- and that's what I 'ate' until they let me go home.
I will post the cheesecake recipe for you soon- as soon as I have the strength to go through the my Christams recipes out in the garage! sorry.
