This is the time of year that people spend days and hours with their families and eat a lot of traditional food.
Yes, I like food. It’s so sad to say, especially since (and this is the worst way of putting it) I’m diabetic, that food is literally my poison. Those cookies, candies, sweets and pastries that you eat on top of the main course meal at dinner, can kill me in a week’s time. That’s if I don’t watch it, naturally.
I’m always on a healthy diet, as the rest of the world should. I always break the diet and I’m motivated to stop breaking it! If anything, that will be my goal for the coming year. Next to getting my blood sugars down, I’m also going to stay on track with what is good and healthy for me.
A friend of mine always laughs at me when I look at nutritional facts on the back of packages. But, how many of you do the same thing? Even if you’re not diabetic and not on a diet, looking at nutritional facts can do a lot of good for you, even if it just scares you. It’ll teach you to stay away from bad food.
I just moved out of my house and into an apartment all for myself and I can’t wait to start cooking what I want to eat! I mean, granted, my family is very healthy in what they cook, but it’s something about making it yourself and having that connection to your own food that makes you enjoy it that much more.
As funny as it sounds, I might just move toward writing how many carbs are in everything in my cabinets and fridge, like Weight Watchers people do. I might even lose some weight that way! But if anything, I would like to open my comments to good recipes and ideas to fill myself up but not fill myself out or affect my blood glucose levels all that much.
So my question to you is, how do you feel about food? Even if you’re not diabetic, what are some things that you feel you have to improve on when it comes to your diet?
