I had a major win today in my book.
Today I made waffles for the first time since diagnosis (Aug 2021), adjusting my trusty pre-diagnosis recipe to reduce the sugar, replace some flour with almond flour, and swap out cow milk for no sugar soy milk.
It was an experiment and I ended up with perfectly crispy waffles that have about 13g of carbs each. I ate 2 (!), plus a bunch of sliced strawberries and even a small cup with a dribbling of maple syrup to dip into. It was delicious.
We planned a walk after waffles. I’m on MDI and I halved my insulin as I usual do for walks like this. I went high as expected at the beginning (peaking around 210 mg/dL which I blame that on the maple syrup), but on our 1.5+ hour walk, I didn’t need any glucose tabs at all. Without fail, I always need glucose tabs at some point on our walks, usually for preventing a low rather than treating one.
I did pop a few Skittles when I got home since I went down to 66 after we got back and lunch wasn’t quite ready, but it’s still a major win for me!
