    cornmeal corn flour and masa that the firm fleshed rockfish is suitable for virtually any cooking method or that celery seed comes from a wild celery mostly found in India called lovage Growing up on the old exchange system carbs were the controlling factor in my diet The meal plan I followed throughout most of my grade school and high school years is ingrained into my memory All food was referred to in terms of starches milks fruits proteins fats or extras and each of these monikers had its associated coloured symbol brown square blue diamond etc etc Like clockwork my meals would follow the same basic outline every single day For breakfast two starches one fruit two milks For lunch the same For dinner three starches two fruits two milks Repeat Repeat Repeat At the time I didn t mind It was just how things were done and as a bonus it forced me to eat a balanced diet However when carb counting came into fashion in the late nineties freedom came with it Carbohydrates are still a critically important factor in my diet but they are no longer a controlling one The food I consume is so much more than a diabetic requirement Oh I count my carbs with as much precision as possible and there are times when I ll skip dessert because I m running high or chug back a warm juice box because my sugar is dropping There are foods that I avoid at certain times of the day I m a lot more carb sensitive in the morning and foods that I avoid at all times of the day see anything containing gluten I have a list of indulgences that require a bolus and a half including ironically enough my sugar free syrup and I save certain foods for sometimes treats my homemade sugar filled strawberry jam for example Despite all this the incessant numbers and measuring and counting are secondary to the fact that food brings me pleasure Food fills me with love Cooking and sharing meals with the people I care for is one of my favourite things I guess that explains why on my birthday my husband and I were mad enough to fill our living room with multiple tables placed end to end and cook a three course dinner for ten of our friends in our teeny tiny pint sized kitchen without a dishwasher While knowledge of food is central to the good management of my diabetes and celiac to me food is so much more It sustains me and inspires me and one of the ways I show my love for those around me is through food When it comes to diabetes this online community plays a key role in helping me stay sane well most of the time For that I thank you If I could I d cook the whole D OC a beautiful healthful delicious meal and I wouldn t even ask for help with the

    when I read over a recent instant messaging conversation between my husband and myself I was working on my laptop at the local library when a message popped up from Daniel offering to bring me lunch what a nice guy eh Instead of simply replying Yes That would be lovely the following conversation is what ensued Funny thing is it wasn t until I retrospectively considered our conversation that I realized it reads a bit bizarre What kind of weirdo asks her husband to weigh her potato chips before packing her lunch Oh diabetes you make me do some strange strange things like pile BBQ chips onto a kitchen scale and calculator in hand frantically pound out some basic equations before indulging in their smoky sweet and spicy goodness This entry was posted in diabetes Diet and Nutrition and tagged carb counting lunch math potato chips Bookmark the permalink Gluten Free Detective Agency Smash Crack Dex Comments are closed 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 ve come to the right
