I need some ideas, please! I have reactive hypoglycemia. (I also have pre-diabetic blood sugar numbers when eating normal amounts of carbs and occasionally numbers over 200… But my Endo is not addressing that at all.) My doctor wants me to eat 25 g of carbs or less per meal, which at this time I usually go over slightly. It is extremely hard to stay under 25 g of carbs, but if I get up in the neighborhood of 40 to 50 carbs, my blood sugar can shoot up over 200. After going over 200, my blood sugar then drops, sometimes below 70 (I am not on any meds). I have a very sensitive stomach due to having Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. I’m very, very lactose intolerant… Two slices of pizza require two Lactaid pills, and I still have a little trouble (not that pizza is a good idea for someone with blood sugar issues, but just an example). I’m on a fairly limited budget, and don’t have a lot of money to spend on trial and error, so I would greatly appreciate any advice that you guys have.
First of all, what fruits are good for someone with blood sugar issues? Which ones do not raise blood sugar too drastically?
Secondly, foods that are healthy tend to bother my stomach, unfortunately. One thing I am interested in is finding (simple) recipes/combinations of foods that I could purée either into a smoothie or a drinkable soup. I think this way I would be able to have some healthier, whole foods, but still keep down some of the stomach issues. Plus, I work a 40 hour a week job and I’m often wiped out by the time I get home, so food prep is definitely not my favorite thing!
Would flaxseeds be a good addition to my diet?
My Endo suggested Greek yogurt… Any particular ones that you guys like?
And just a sidenote, if anyone has a good recipe for chicken salad that I could make using a ninja style blender, I would love it!
