My Dinner Today was Really Good

I didn't overload my plate today, as many diabetics do on holidays. Yes, I also included a slice of pumpkin pie, the first time in about a year My diet booklet states that adding a sweet dessert is OK, as long as it's not very often. Well, today was my day to splurge and my glucose level didn't go through the ceiling! My highest glucose reading today was 166, not really too bad. Anyway, I took a picture of my dinner plate, which I certainly didn't overload. Corn? Yup! Dressing? Yup! Bread&Butter Pickle? Yup? Gravy? Yes, of course! Cranberries? Yup! The best part about this holiday, I probably won't be cooking again for another week Photo: taken by me

I didn't get overly stuffed, as I sometimes do on Thanksgiving.

@Tina30219 Eating a slice of pie, without one ounce of guilt or shame! Today, back to following all the diabetic rules:)

That looks so good!!! I ate too much! 166 isn't bad for eating as well as you did. I hope you have a marvelous day!

@kobesbuddy It was just the two of us; but it was nice. We watched football and spent some time together.

Jay and I do team work, he fixes the desserts and I prep the dinner. I was working all day, doing what that I enjoy most, taking care of my family.

Cooking at home is something I don't mind doing. Holidays? I feel the same way, preparing a meal is enjoyable. Sometimes I get a meal from a restaurant, which is OK.

Looks pretty good to me. I've been grazing on leftovers today.

I had a similar meal about an hour ago, probably 1/2 as much. Pumpkin pie? I ate that for breakfast this morning!

This photo made me feel really, really hungry! We've just got home from our house-sit. We picked up milk and bread on the way then discovered when we got home that we had no butter! So it looks like another trip to the shops later.

We did the exact same thing, rushed around to beat the holiday rush. Got home, we hadn't purchased a gallon of milk, we were out:(

Many booklets say, no salt, no gravy, no butter, nothing fried, no cheese, meat baked or grilled. Then, a person feels deprived because the food loses its good taste!

We used to go somewhere every Thanksgiving and Christmas. As we get older, it is so much nicer to stay home and curl up with a good movie!

I'm glad you didn't overeat and your glucose level wasn't too high.

Thankyou, I tried to keep the carbs down, but actually ate more than is recommended.
