I have tried to appease my hummus addiction with sliced cucumber and carrots. The cucumbers were strange, not bad, but I am not sure if I liked it or not lol. I still ate it so eh. But no I do not like raw carrots and even dipping them in yummy hummus did not fool me into liking them. I like plenty of other veggies so I just need to stop forcing myself to try and like carrots. It isn't going to happen.
I went to the doctor yesterday. She upped my prozac by double so I am up from 20mg to 40mg. She also gave me propranolol to take as needed during a severe panic attack. She kept me on the same 2.5 of abilify. And said my blood sugar numbers were looking good and that we would talk more about diabetes stuff the next time I come in, in 2 months. I plan to be an all star by then :)
I think one thing that will really help me is a better meal plan. I find myself wasting food left and right because I buy alot and then don't have time to eat it all or end up eating something else. I need a plan that can be firm enough to have structure but with some wiggle room just incase something else comes up.
This is my idea for now. I wanna test my BS after each meal and play around if I need to.
Eggs + veggies
1 day a week oatmeal IF after I test my BS it isn't crazy high after.
My "Big" meal of the day that changes each week. But ideally it would be 1-2 things that I can eat leftovers the other nights.
Fajitas which is my newest favorite thing I have learned to make
Pasta dishes with tons of veggies/little bit of pasta
chicken + veggies and/rice maybe
whatever my husband wants for dinner but smartly portioned and with veggies for me.
Ideally I would prefer lunch to be my big meal and stick with a salad for dinner. I think it would be wiser. But as I am alone for lunch but the DH is home for dinner. It would spell disaster as it tempts all my willpower to stick with a salad when he wants something yummy for dinner. I have to set myself up for success.
With this plan I will only need to be testing my BS around dinner to figure out what foods work and don't. I won't have to worry about breakfast or lunch ideas. It is simple and easy. Lower carb meals but not giving up carbs completely or even being all that low.
Hopefully this will all help budget wise and diet wise.
