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:


Cinnamon toast
Probiotic drink

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.


  1. The chicken nuggets look so delicious. I have been collecting recipes today and will add them to the list.

  2. Your daughter is a far better eater than me. I joke all the time when I have dinner with my niece and nephew because they probably eat twice as much as me at any given meal.
