Figuring out Snacking

Saturday, July 06, 2013

I usually write about my day towards the very end but today proves to be a little different. I'm scheduled to work and I could possibly be there after midnight. I hope not but there is always a chance.

So it is to early to talk about my water intake and I probably wont get any exercise in for the day. But I do want to talk about some food issues we are having in the house. Since my husband was recently diagnosed with diabetes we have had a time trying to figure out what we should be changing food wise. We tend to snack a bit after dinner and at the moment snacks = sweet. I'm not sure how to beat this because even when I consciously think about it, I still buy the sweets. My husband is much the same so he is no help. It is just what we know.

Also, since the diagnosis we have done very little research on the correct diets/way of living because everything is so overwhelming. I want a small pamphlet or better yet one sheet of paper that tells me everything I need to know and do. That way my husband and I can read it and we wouldn't feel crushed by the weight of the diabetes.

Honestly, you would think it would be easy to just buy fruit instead of snacks but its not. snacks run 1 or 2 dollars and fruits cost more. You can only eat so many bananas before you get sick of them. Knowing me though, I'd turn it into banana bread which is still a sweet.

We definitely need some help!

    Make healthy snacks to go. Prepackage nuts, fruit, cut up veggies, cheese. You can also make healthy muffins and breads that will be more than one serving. Fruit does not have to be costly. Buy what is in season and on sale. Good luck!
