DBlog Week: Food! Glorious Food!
Friday - Food on Friday
Write a post documenting what you eat in a day! Feel free to add links to recommended recipes/shops/whatever. Make it an ideal day or a come-as-you-are day – no judgments either way.
Even though Elise was diagnosed young, food has always been the easy part for us. She always eats everything on her plate, and she's a creature of habit when it comes to her meals. For example:
Total carbs: 45g
Yes... she eats this pretty much every morning.
The best part is I can wake up at 6:00 am and pre-bolus her while she's still asleep. This way we avoid the nasty breakfast spike and top out around 180 before gently floating back into range (in a perfect world where everything goes according to plan).
Probiotic drink (she loves them)
Chocolate chip cookie
Total carbs: 65g
Snack after school:
Popcorn (usually not even enough to bolus her for)
For this I asked Elise what her favourite dinner I make was. After rattling off a few, she said, "but your chicken nuggets are THE BEST!"
They really are. Better than CFA, in my opinion. Alas, I cannot take credit for them. You can find the recipe here at Our Best Bites. I am not affiliated with them in any way, but honestly, everything I have made from their site is pure awesomeness.
And you're into such things... a carb factor of .10 works quite nicely for these.
