  • Smart Charting | My Favourite Number
    will be staying motivated to fill out all the required data on a daily basis In theory Smart Charting is great A single page with a visual representation of blood glucose over time overlayed with food intake insulin dosages and activity levels That s a lot of important information crammed onto a teeny tiny logbook page and definitely more informative than my current logbook with boxes and boxes of numbers not all of them my favourites scribbled notes in 03 size font and symbols and arrows to explain my highs and lows It proves confusing to me at times let alone to my endocrinologist Of course I know most meters can be plugged into a computer yielding handy dandy graphs of blood sugar trends However I rarely if ever actually get around to doing this By the time I download information from my meter and start noticing patterns three months have passed it s a completely different season and my schedule routine exercise levels have changed Also and this may just be me but inputting data into my UltraSmart takes me ages What with the buttons and the menus and the scrolling through values until I find the one I want I could write it down faster Enter Smart Charting This entry was posted in Blood Sugar Diet and Nutrition Exercise and tagged blood glucose Blood Sugar logbook smart chart Bookmark the permalink Fibre iffic Global Diabetes Handprint One Response to Smart Charting AlexAxe says May 4 2009 at 8 18 am Hello Thank you I would now go on this blog every day Search for About Laura Brandes I m Laura Brandes and I have both type 1 diabetes and celiac disease If you re looking for motivation humour support or perspective on living with a chronic condition you

  • The From Scratch Era | My Favourite Number
    simmer We sauté And then we grab our forks delve in and more often than not groan with gustatory pleasure even when things don t turn out quite as we d initially imagined Good food is such an important part of living a healthful life and as a person with both type 1 diabetes and celiac disease I can not overemphasize how monumentally important healthy food choices are in my day to day living This is not to say that I don t enjoy cookies and chocolate and ice cream believe me I do But I also strongly believe in balance and moderation Each Friday the From Scratch Era will celebrate a single culinary topic something that Daniel and I have been exploring during the week a specific dish or baked good a seasonal vegetable or fruit or a recently tried cooking methodology We may also stray slightly from the from scratch path and promote cookbooks that we enjoy or great gluten free products that we discover All in all the From Scratch Era will be a celebration of great tasting and gluten free food made with care and made with love We hope that you will as we have find joy in the From Scratch Era We hope you will take inspiration from this new venture and be inspired to get into the kitchen and get some dishes dirty This entry was posted in NaBloPoMo The From Scratch Era and tagged food gluten free joy love Bookmark the permalink Zero Carbs Big Laughs Testing Testing 2 Responses to The From Scratch Era Bernard Farrell says November 3 2009 at 6 40 pm I don t know whether you re living where you can do this but you may want to consider raising chickens They re very easy to keep

  • Please, Do It Right. | My Favourite Number
    choices for the gluten free consumer On the other hand though I am afraid of a rise in gluten free visibility that lacks an accompanying rise in education Using the words gluten free is fine and dandy but it is critical that the people using them are aware of the weight they carry For those of us with celiac disease eating gluten free is a serious matter Our immune systems do not recognize the protein found in wheat barley rye or the derivatives of these grains I know from experience that the consumption of even a crumb of gluten containing food will find me sick and exhausted and oftentimes cranky and unproductive for upwards of three days Last week Amy Leger from The Savvy Celiac wrote a post imploring restaurants to not do gluten free simply for the sake of it Going gluten free is a serious commitment and it is critically important that every link of the food to table chain be it food manufacturers food packagers or restaurant staff is well informed and properly educated about the risks of hidden gluten and cross contamination Your soft corn tacos are not gluten free if they are prepared on a grill with wheat tortillas Your rice crust pizza is not gluten free if it s baked in an oven with a wheat calzone We are not demanding or picky eaters We are simply people trying to lead full lives without compromising our well being Restaurants that take the extra effort to inform their staff about food sensitivities and restrictions or companies that go through the process of having their products certified gluten free gain my trust have my support and provide me with a sense of comfort For many people knowing exactly how their food has been handled or prepared
