Been a really good boy since my diagnosis last July. I have tried the extra dark chocolate, and its okay, not great, and really breaks the bank account. As T2, I can’t just cheat now and then and hope to correct it with insulin (not to imply anything towards T1’s and what they can and cannot eat )
I found non-fat, no sugar, instant pudding is okay for me, and the Lite Cool Whip allows me some form of indulgence, but is rapidly wearing out its welcome
Some of the things I have read are complicated recipes that are for like ten servings of brownies, but I can only eat one based on the carb readings, or a cake that has no cake ingredients. I am single, and live alone, so having that many brownies in the house could be a problem
What have all of you who love chocolate done to work around this that would apply to a single person, who hates to cook? I have gotten to where I can make dinner that is okay, and fills me up well, but can’t shake that need for some dessert, and chocolate is still a weakness. I knew this would happen. I went gung ho at first, and cut all that stuff out, but the honeymoon is over, and I spend too much time foraging, and wondering why I search the pantry shelves, when I am the one who fills them
Always up for suggestions.
