Diabetes Blog Week 2015 – Day 5 – Foods on Friday


Welcome back to Day 5 of Diabetes Blog Week 2015! Here’s the prompt for Day 5, Foods on Friday – Friday 5/15:

Taking a cue from Adam Brown’s recent post, write a post documenting what you eat in a day! Feel free to add links to recommended recipes/shops/whatever. Make it an ideal day or a come-as-you-are day – no judgments either way.

This week, my eating has been a little all over the place because of some personal drama excitement. For example, today, I had some coffee and a bowl of Chex for breakfast, a dirty soy chai latte and a fruit cup for lunch, and some potatoes covered in cheese for dinner. My meals are usually pretty simple: eggs or cereal for breakfast, dinner leftovers for lunch, and something easy for dinner.

I have been eating primarily gluten free for a little more than a year now, which has calmed down my psoriasis quite a bit. Unlike many Type 1 Diabetics, I haven’t developed Celiac Disease (yet), but eating gluten free isn’t very hard for me, so it’s worth it.

I eat a lot of fruit and vegetables, and I love a new CSA that I’ve been using since I went to an event put on by my local JDRF office! (CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and you can read more about it here!) Farm Fresh to You drops off fresh, delicious, organic produce on my doorstep every other Friday, which definitely helps me keep lots of fruit and vegetables in my diet! Click the banner below if you want to learn more about this CSA and use the code LAUR1363 for $10 off your first order! (I’ll also get a little money off my next order when you use the code.)

My favorite sources of protein are cheese (or other dairy products), peanut (or other nut) butter, and seafood (especially crustaceans)… usually not all together! Let’s be honest, though: I’ll eat a seared scallop any time of day. ;)

Splurges for me usually involve ice cream/frozen yogurt, dark chocolate, or a combination of those. My husband makes awesome gluten-free chocolate chip cookies and I’ll obviously enjoy those when I can, too!
