I'm always ready to try anything just to lower my blood sugar. I was surfing the net and found a website about reversing diabetes through diet. Seems easy so I followed it today. The website said, about 8 oz. (224 grams) of skinless breast or fish or shellfish and 3 cups vegetables per meal i.e. lunch and dinner.
Sweet camote is good for diabetes... but you have to eat it with a little fat for it to work! It is considered vegetables and not classifed under starches such as white potato, rice or bread. I made mashed sweet potato with a "pat" of butter and about a teaspoon of low fat milk to moisten.
Finally, I found a brand of butter I really like, President, salted. But I am not eating bread at the moment :(
I had the skinless chicken breast marinated together with the pork barbecue over night then had it grilled for lunch.
Boiled the sliced carrots in water with a little Magic Sarap. Too salty because I added 1/2 t. Next time will only add 1/4 t. Then when the carrots were half done, I added the broccoli florets. I know the author of the diet didn't mean for me to add a pat of butter to the veggies but I did.
It took me an hour to finish my lunch!!! It wasn't bad but it also wasn't sinigang na baboy with rice!!!
The trainer at the gym told me I should just eat the salad greens without the dressing .... so that was what I did tonight.
Then pan-fried in very little oil 2 pieces of small sized Sole. I saw in the vegetables section of Rustan's oyster mushroom, so I got a pack, rinsed it and sauteed with little oil and butter with chopped garlic and 1 t. Kikkoman soy sauce.
I survived the day without eating bread or rice!!! But I am cheating as I'm writing this post. I'm eating cheese flavored clover chips :(
I hope when I wake up my blood sugar will be lower than today's.
