You are what you eat . . .

. . . and your unborn child is also what you eat. In my son's case, he is mostly composed of the following:
  • Subway (6 inches on wheat of turkey or Italian BMT, tuna once a week)
  • Baked Lays (sour cream & onion or BBQ)
  • crackers with peanut butter, or crackers with cheese
  • Quaker Oats granola bars (my favorite thing to treat lows)
  • Juicy Juice (Comes in handy 15g boxes; grape or fruit punch flavor. What I drank at least 2 of each day in my first trimester to keep above 50 mg/dl at any random moment.)
  • chocolate chip cookies (honesty, best policy)
  • cheddar cheese and mustard sandwiches on Nature's Own low-carb wheat bread (yeah, sounds gross; tastes like the nectar of the gods)
  • golden delicious apples
  • Mediterranean chicken salads from Au Bon Pain
  • Dannon light yogurt
  • oatmeal
Does it sound like a typical diabetic diet? Ha. My 14 day average is 102. I'm happy (AND STILL HUNGRY!)

Wow, Kendra. One-oh-two? Wait, let me get a pencil and write this down! ;^)

Have a great leap day.

Jeff, I'd attribute it directly to the cookies. Or the chips. Or the juice. ;)

I love the strawberry apple juicy juice (or maybe it's Motts? or another brand?) Either way - it's a yummy flavor. I'm totally jealous of your 102. Keep up the good work!
