Yesterday was a better day than Tuesday was. I remained in control. I did not let my stomach or emotions make decisions for me.
The problem with yesterday was, I didn’t eat enough. I just didn’t feel like eating. I don’t know if it was because I physically just didn’t feel well or what, but I didn’t eat until dinner. Even at that I ate a “normal” portion and was done.
AM fasting blood sugar: 186 mg/dl.
6 pm blood sugar: 124 mg/dl.
After dinner blood sugar (2 hours after): 149 mg/dl.
My numbers are improving at least.
My friend Liz asked for me to give her an example of things I make to eat. Last nights dinner was Cream of mushroom chicken.
I start with 1/2 stick unsalted butter melted in a non-stick skillet. I then brown mushroom slices with a little salt added to help draw the moisture out of them. DON’T CROWD THE MUSHROOMS or they won’t brown properly (Thank you Julie & Julia).
Once my mushrooms are browned I remove them to a paper towel lined plate.
In the same skillet I add 1 tbsp olive oil and my garlic salt and peppered chicken breast (I cook 1 chicken breast per person), boneless and skin less of course.
Brown the chicken on both sides and then remove from pan.
Melt the other 1/2 stick of butter and return the mushrooms and add in heavy cream. I usually add enough to cover the chicken. I am serving 6 people and using a large skillet (for those of you with fewer people, you may not need as much).
Place chicken in to butter/mushroom/cream mixture and place lid on. Reduce heat to medium low and allow to simmer for approximately 20 minutes (until chicken is cooked through).
I serve with a salad and steamed broccoli with cheese.
That’s an example of a dinner menu. Tonight it will be hamburgers (minus the bun for me) with grilled onion, mushroom and bell pepper. I’ll serve it with a salad and some green beans (that I can eat with my fingers to substitute for that french fry action).
Nothing fancy. I eat pretty much what I would normally, only I take out as much of the carbs as I can.
We are on the downward slide to the weekend! Hope ya’ll have a good one!
