I wouldn’t consider myself a culinary expert. I have my fair share of issues maintaining a balanced diet. I swear it’s getting better but these things take time, right?
This is one of those things they don’t tell you at diagnosis. Sure, eating will never really be the same, you will eventually treat dinner like a multivariable calculus problem and in time you may develop super-human mental math and carb to insulin conversion skills. But they don’t have any idea how much of a mental strain a healthier diet can be on top of everything else you have to do diabetically speaking.
When the quick-fix is infinitely more convenient, especially after a day in the 300s or 50s (hypothetically speaking), something as “simple” as eat your vegetables is anything but.
And yes, that is a Christopher Classic: creamy peanut butter and grape jelly. Accept no substitutes.

Well, that looks like a balanced meal to me! 🙂
Don’t tell Dayle what I had for dinner!
This has to be the most random assortment of food, and it’s cracking me up. The pepperonis with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich made me laugh. 🙂 Balanced, it is.
What’s that stuff on the carrots?
Ranch dressing 🙂
