Yesterday I ran high ALL day and could not get down into range no matter what I tried. Last night, I figured out that it was because I not only needed a raise in basal rates (again) but had forgotten to take both metformin and Tresiba the night before. So with those three things done, I am back to flatlining. It’s crazy do me how much of an impact metformin has, considering I didn’t really think it made much difference when I first started.
Last night in an attempt to make my chia pudding more exciting I combined one half chia seeds with one half unsweetened coconut shreds, then put in cocoa powder, powdered stevia, and on a whim added powdered peanut butter. This morning I mixed it all with unsweetened almond milk. I was not sure at all what it would taste like, but it’s quite tasty, and the texture is pretty good! I am actually eating it without cringing. Tastes like eating a chocolate bar for breakfast.
Also, yesterday I tried dehydrating cauliflower rice, and it worked. A tiny container holds three or four servings. I will try rehydrating it later this week and see how it tastes. Looking for solutions for lightening my luggage when travelling, and getting rid of huge containers, heavy food, and ice packs in favour of a tiny, light container will definitely help. Next I will probably try green beans. I am also wondering about meat, but could also just bring or buy canned meat, which may be the safer option. Exciting, though!
