    One of my doctors recommended fish oil pills for mental health. I think it's good to make sure you buy purified fish oil pills because of mercury. But I could be wrong, not sure if mercury is an issue in fish oil pills or not. Maybe Canada is more on the ball about stuff like that than the U.S. If you buy fish oil pills you might also want to look for the burp-less type to avoid that icky after taste.

    SparkPeople has an article about omega 3s, have you read it?


    Also a slide show:


    At home I only use olive oil and canola oil. Olive oil for dressings and cooking, canola oil for baking in place of butter or margarine. Not that I cook much emoticon

    I admire your dedication to walking emoticon

    I live in Canada :D So that's why the measurements are different here :D
    Thank you for the kind comments and suggestions and etc also.
    I am gonna try to do that for my tuna and yes I agree with it having mercury and etc so I don't know what else to do. What should I do to get Omega 3s in my diet?. My boyfriend doesn't like the smell of fish or fish so. Not sure what to do. What about omega 3/fish oil pills?

    I emailed my diabetes specialist/endo and asked her what my cholesterol numbers were so if she gets back to me ill keep you posted ok.

    And I buy veggies to eat raw also. I am starting to eat avacodo with tomato and stomach a clove of garlic daily lol. And eating spinach also. I try and want to keep it up :D Keep you posted.
    I am not a big meat eater but I like chicken and where I work makes the best organic turkey sandwiches yum :D But I don't do red meat. I try to limit it.

    Have a great day and ttyl
    More vlogs to come :)

    I'm glad you said that about us in the U.S. because I was wondering where you are. Some of the terms you use about your insulin levels are a mystery to me emoticon Which country do you live in?

    I also avoid mayo in tuna but there are plenty of healthy ways to eat canned tuna: Mixed in with veggies, on top of salads, really the choices are endless depending on your taste. For flavor try various dried herbs, pepper, flavored vinegars (a little goes a long way and is said to help with insulin control), mustard, ketchup if you can eat it. I limit tuna to no more than 2 or 3 times a week because of the mercury. Blech.

    About food: I hate to cook. Recently I've found I'm saving money on groceries by sticking to a simple formula: I buy the best quality low-fat poultry and beef, mostly poultry, I can afford. That I cook either in the oven or in a pan, very simply. For veggies I either eat fresh in season veggies raw, tomatoes, carrots and such. Or I nuke frozen no-salt added veggies. That way we're getting healthy protein and healthy veggies.

    I hope you are able to connect with other Sparkers who are also insulin dependent. Meanwhile does your country have anything like the American Diabetes Association? If you haven't looked at their website it has a wealth of information. They have paid membership but a lot of their resources are free to everyone:
    -dorg More to the point they also have a community forum. As far as I can tell you have to sign up to use the forum but it's free: http://community.diabetes.org/t5/Ad
