My Day in Food

This week I’m  taking part in the 7th annual Diabetes Blog Week, which runs from 16th to 20th May. Founded by Karen at Bitter Sweet Diabetes.

My Day in Food – Wildcard

WARNING – this post will be boring!!!

I feel like I’m the only person with diabetes in the world who doesn’t cook. I hate cooking!!! It goes back to my childhood where as the eldest girl it was expected that I would cook and I do NOT like being told what to do. 

It was also enabled by my husband, who when we met was vegetarian – I was reared on meat, potato & veg. I also am not a big fan of the spud either – am I really Irish!?! Anyways, he insisted on cooking and I didn’t put up much of a fight. 

So here’s what someone with diabetes, who does NOT cook, who would be me, eats on an average day. And it will be, as expected, very boring!

BreakfastMost mornings I go for the low calorie porridge. On weekends I go crazy and have 2 slices of wholemeal toast (dripping in butter😋😋😋) with two cups of tea. Can’t function without a cup of good old Irish tea.

Mid Morning Snack; At least 2 cups of Coffee ☕☕ 

Lunch; Weekdays; Salad, protein, rye crackers for crunch! 😋😋😋😋 And a piece of fruit – whatever’s in season. On weekends; 2 egg omelette with whatever is in the fridge plus cheese, a slice of bread & a piece of fruit.

Mid Afternoon Snack: Tea this time. ☕☕ at least

DinnerCould be anything! I am married to a wonderful man who DOES cook and is very, very good at it. In exchange I do LOTS of dishes – it’s actually in our pre-nup. This dinner is wholewheat spaghetti with a cooked from scratch tomato and a smoked sausage called cabanossi. And it was DE-licious!

Dessert: Every evening I have a little something nice like Chocolate or ice cream. Plus a last round of Tea. I know, I know but there are worse things out there and I don’t have problems sleeping – so why not!

And that’s it! Like I said, it’s not very interesting but it has minimum impact on my blood glucose levels and it’s what I like and what works for me. Find what works for you:-)
