Weirdly, I had an absolutely fantastic and mostly "healthy" time at a week long bread baking class in West Virginia. I know, it sounds STUPID?!?! Not really. I only had one bad day of high BGs--actually think it was a pump problem, and did not take much more insulin then on a normal day. I love the science of baking, feed my mind as well as my soul and learned SO much.
Ate a lot of salad to balance the tasting bites of carbs. Good trade off and worked great with my T1. I still believe that when I cook the food, know what is in it, life and BG levels are so much better.
We made calculations at the end and they are staggering. We used 100 pounds of whole wheat flour. That totals 46,500 carbs and 208,000 calories, not including the sugar, nuts, chocolate, eggs, milk.... With sharing with the 100 other participants, we figure each of them gained 1/2 pound.
With care, I was able to do this and succeed as a T1. I am kind of proud of myself.
