It’s moving day, the first of two. I woke up this morning in the apartment; tonight after work I’ll drive to the farm house and start living there. Our PODS will arrive from storage on Wednesday. With any luck, I’ll have my home office up and running by Friday.
You may recall that after Chareva’s birthday dinner at a Chinese restaurant, my one-hour post-meal glucose level was 219 mg/dl. After two hours, it was still near 160. Since Chareva packed up the kitchen yesterday afternoon, we went to Red Lobster for dinner. Here’s what I had:
- One crab cake appetizer
- Lobster-artichoke-cheese dip on about six tortilla chips
- A Cobb salad with bleu cheese dressing
- A bite of Sara’s clam chowder
- One lobster tail
- Two skewers of garlic shrimp
- Four large scallops
- Two crab-stuffed shrimp (because Chareva couldn’t finish her dinner)
- Broccoli drenched with drawn butter
In other words, I feasted. An hour later, my glucose level was 101 mg/dl.
A diet that keeps your blood sugar under control doesn’t have to be boring.
