I had a Chicago style dog for supper last night...and I tracked it...and I stayed in MOST of my ranges (probably not sodium)...and it was worth every delicious bite! I only indulge in that a few times a year.
I'm not diabetic, but I try to do what KJ said in the OP - eat something every 2-3 hours. Normally I keep apples, clementines, KIND bars, UBER bars, homemade trail mix (walnuts, pumpkin seeds, raisins, cashews), etc. with me all the time. I have snacks in an insulated cooler bag in the trunk (not an issue now, but in the summer...) and usually something in my purse.
I cannot tell you how many times that's kept me from hitting the drive thru!
last weekend I was out running errands and got so hungry. I was putting the stuff from the wholesale club in the car and kept ONE item to put up front for me to munch. The Canadian bacon LOL! That's become a 'go to' snack for me. Low cal, low fat, high protein, and YUMMY!
