After one last meal out with no diet restrictions other than gluten, That would be a half-rack of barbecued ribs (honey BBQ sauce), baked potato with butter and sour cream, and french fries with tomato catsup. I am back to my diabetes meal plan as of today and planning to record calories and carbohydrates.
As you may know (from another of my blogs), both of my parents have died within the past four months, during which we have had two clan gatherings, one 100th birthday party (our father’s) and two military funerals. On the principle that they should be kept together, I now have possession of the funeral flags from both parents’ interments. I also have the brass cartridges, from which I will retain three from each ceremony. The remainder will be polished and given to immediate family and offspring. We have the equipment to do that.
For breakfast, today, I enjoyed a poached egg and a “wild berry” toaster waffle. My morning snack was two ounces of roast chicken breast. I am out of salad greens, and so we are going grocery shopping. When we return, I plan to fix a salad with poppy-seed dressing and sliced turkey breast (cut for me at the butcher’s shop at the beginning of the week). I also want to get vegetables to add to the salad; I already have oranges, cheese and hard-boiled eggs.
I also want to pick up fixings for homemade soup, again, before the cold winter ends. I’ve settled for too many cold meals. Which may be another reason why we have eaten out so often (in addition to gathering together with family).
I dislike weighing foods and looking up calorie and carbohydrate counts. I’m supposed to have a minimum of 120g of carbohydrates (not including fiber) spread over five of my six meals/snacks.
