This morning I recorded a net decrease of 20 points to 107 mg/dL to my early morning blood sugar count.
I decided that I was going to throw together some sort of Caesar Salad. Ingredients - Romaine Lettuce, Tomato, Onion, Garlic, Buttermilk, Lemon Juice, Olive Oil, Parmesan Cheese, Salt and Pepper, and leftover Mojo Pork with Black Beans and White Rice. (Yes, MW, LD, and MCB I made my own Buttermilk Caesar Dressing.)
Actually wasn’t bad. I had two helpings. And some freshly baked Whole Wheat Rye Bread.
(BMS, the Rye bread, the one on the right, had a greater portion of Caraway seeds this time.)
Caesar Dressing . Carb count ≈ 7.4 grams.
Romaine Lettuce. Carb count ≈ 3 grams.
Tomato and Onion. Carb count ≈ 7.5 grams.
Mojo Pork. Carb count ≈ 4.5 grams.
Black Beans and Rice. Carb count ≈ 30 grams.
Rye Bread. Carb count ≈ 12 grams.
Total carbohydrate count for Mojo Pork Caesar Salad and Rye Bread approximates 64.4 grams.
And then, of course, a couple of scoops of B&J Phish Food. Carb count ≈ 78 grams.
Total carb count in my Supper Showdown, somewhere in the vicinity of 142.4 grams.
FSB – 107 ↓ down 127 (Normal range 100 – 125 mg/dL)
A1c – 5.37 ↑ up 5.36 (Normal range 5.7 – 6.4 %)
eAG – 107.4 ↑ up 107.2 (Normal range 117 – 137 mg/dL)
Tune in tomorrow to Jim’s Gotta Eat to see the comparison of the results...and the set up a new Supper Showdown.
Food for thought – Try not to eat too late in the evening. Manage the amount of food that I eat. Do not over eat because my eyes see good food.
Oh yeah, the numbers are an approximate and I use them as a guide. This Smith is not a biochemist nor a microbiologist.
I am trying to control my diabetes with exercise and food. I have eliminated all diabetes medication. I am keeping my weight stable, and Jim's gotta eat.
