Food Glorious Food

One of the hardest part of diabetes is the food. Sure the finger sticks and shots are horrible, but you get used to them in the same way you get used to that neighbour's dog that barks you awake at 5:00 a.m. every morning. Although the urge to go over to their house and hide a baby monitor speaker in their bedroom is very great (because wouldn't that be an awesome way to pay them back?), you resist it. And pretty soon, you grow accustomed to the barking and are able to snooze right through it. And the dreams of liberating said dog by "accidentally" leaving their gate open slowly fade away.

Now what was I talking about?

Ah, but the food. Trying to figure out what am I going to feed her three times a day is overwhelming. Add to it that Elise didn't get her first tooth until only a month ago, and my list of foods that I can feed her rivals that of good songs by Hanson. That, my friends, is a very short list. And due to the fact that she STILL has only one tooth, the list hasn't grown any.

But I have found some tried and true favourites, and want to get my act together enough to share them on this blog.

And if anyone reading this blog has some food ideas for a nearly-toothless-toddler, well I am all ears!
