I’m trying not to eat any carbs after 6 pm because it tends to make it easier to manage BG during the night (I kept having lows during the night whenever I injected) but I do feel I need protein (I’m the skinny type) and haven’t found many easy cooking choices, basically just eggs or tofu. I eat chicken, beef or fish at lunch and would like to eat non animal protein at night.
Quick caveat here, be careful of vegetable protein substitutes! Before I would go to bed, I recently tried Textured Vegetables Protein which is basically re hydrated soy flour with almost no carbs at all in it and high in fiber. So I would not bolus for this. After 4 hours my BG when just start rising and rising with no stop. I narrowed it down to being a problem with just a super high concentration of protein. It was enough protein to cause a pretty drastic rise during the 4-6 hour range
