I am a diabetic. I love to eat. I love to cook. I enjoy feeding folks who enjoy what I create. Most important is I love to eat! That does not make dieting or trying to reduce my obesity any easier. Below I will share a thread I just wrote but I must say I would like to see this thread run as I will share my food experiences and invite others to as well. I hope we can help each other and learn together to be healthier, live longer and in general be better diabetics.
Been a little while since checking in.After a weekend of plenty I am very pleased to share numbers continue to improve.
Saturday night found me making a huge pot of chili for the family. On that days walk with dog we came across a Barred owl who sat in a tree about 90 feet away.It is an amazing thing when nature is discovered or shared at your door. Yesterday after a very dietetic day of golf followed by football on TV, I was treated to a toasted bagel with Nova Scotia salmon and all the trimmings. Imagine the delight as my waking number was 131. Details on the day. My son offered me a banana at the turn and turned it down (we had egg whites with feta cheese for breakfast). I have been a big eater all my life and find it is easier to diet the less I eat. I also hoped to test before lunch! As it turned out we ate lunch at the course and I was able to resist the unbelievable the fresh bread offerings that included a olive twist that looked fresh out of oven and the room temperature butter that accompanied it. The other two players ordered a wrap and a grilled cheese with bacon and tomato on rye (I was soooo tempted). When my son ordered a salad with grilled shrimp, I followed in suit. During football we barely ate. Actually my wife put out cut up grilled (apple) chicken sausage with a little tomato sauce to dip it in which was very satisfying! I think I will start a food thread as if I am not eating , at lease I can talk, write about it. See you there.
That’s it. Food. and that bagel you ask? It was poppy, toasted to a turn, buttered with scallion cream cheese, sliced tomato, red onion and the ever present Novi. Please let me know what you’re eating or craving or miss.Have a great day!
