  • Big Delicious Oatmeal | My Favourite Number
    a hardy combination of fresh fruit dried fruit nuts spices a bit of sweetness and if I m feeling really indulgent a handful of unsweetened coconut flakes Daniel loves anything with banana I love the earthy crunchy slightly sweet blend of pecans and coconut Really though with oatmeal it s hard to go wrong In the past few weeks two of my flavour combinations have risen to the top of our oatmeal grading chart Raisin Pear Pecan and Maple Banana Date If you aren t a fan of oatmeal please consider trying one of these Trust me I m sure you ve never imagined that oatmeal could taste this good Today I am sharing with you one of my favourite pages from my food journal the Big Delicous Oatmeal page I m confident these recipes will make you happy One cup of regular oats makes two big delicious bowls The measurements below aren t exact Go with what you think looks right Play around Change it up But mostly enjoy As for carb values depending on how much fruit I toss into the pot a bowl usually clocks in somewhere between 50 and 70g I find that with the fibre in the oats the fat in the coconut and the protein in the nuts my sugar stays pretty steady after enjoying a bowl I do double bolus for the honey or syrup component though This adds an extra 5g of carbohydrates per bowl This entry was posted in gluten free Recipes and tagged oatmeal Bookmark the permalink Blogging and Logging The Greatest Finger Poking Crowd This Side of Anywhere One Response to Big Delicious Oatmeal RedMango says October 18 2010 at 5 21 am Very nice post Search for About Laura Brandes I m Laura Brandes and I have both

    the grind resolution You ll be reading my words and seeing my photos far more than you have in recent months Blogging wasn t the only victim of summer neglect My logbook sat in a corner collecting dust most of the summer Although I diligently check my sugar upwards of a dozen times a day change my infusion set regularly and measure my food with as much accuracy as possible I wasn t recording any data From June to September my logbook contains a sorry scattering of blood sugar readings As any PWD knows it s near impossible to notice patterns in blood glucose without sufficient data As for records of carbohydrate intake basal rates and physical activity They re even worse Despite the sorry state of my logbook my control has still been good My current A1c falls within my goal range huzzah However without a slew of numbers to analyze and upon which to base basal tweakings achieving and maintaining good control is a bit of a guessing game Okay it s not a bit of a guessing game It is a guessing game While logging takes time it does make this whole having diabetes thing a whole lot easier in the long run And that s important So I m jumping on the logbooking wagon and buckling in for the ride If any PWDs out there have found themselves in a similar situation of logbook neglect I welcome you to join me Together we ll hope that this ride follows a straight path over flat terrain as opposed to that dreaded roller coaster track Blogging and logging Autumn here I come This entry was posted in Blood Sugar and tagged blogging logbook logging Bookmark the permalink D Feast Friday The From Scratch Era v 3 Big Delicious

  • Testing…Testing… | My Favourite Number
    realization that I d been testing wrong for over a decade I started to feel angry For years I had been struggling to achieve good blood sugar control without much success I couldn t help feeling that if I d been taught to test in pairs earlier in my D life some of those unexplainable highs and lows that had plagued me throughout high school and university might not have been quite so mysterious Why had I never been told that testing your blood sugar after a meal is just as important as testing beforehand I soon realized that the answer to this question is not important Dwelling upon what I was or was not aware of in the past is futile So anger quickly turned to determination as I resolved to embrace my new found knowledge and test and test test and test test and test in pairs So I remodelled my blood glucose monitoring routine And in the eight months since making the change it s amazing how much I ve learned It s as though a key has turned a curtain has lifted and I m suddenly seeing a bigger picture I m suddenly getting a behind the scenes tour of my own personal insulin carbohydrate blood sugar show As I strive toward optimal control there s something comforting in knowing that even after more than a decade and a half with this disease there are always new things to learn and new things to try on this roller coaster that is diabetes This entry was posted in Blood Sugar NaBloPoMo and tagged Blood Sugar pairs testing Bookmark the permalink The From Scratch Era Please Do It Right 3 Responses to Testing Testing George says November 3 2009 at 12 15 pm So true It takes pouring
