Going out for dinner would be nicer if I could "save up points".
I mean, when it's as simple as keeping the daily nutrient intake to a certain number of "points", one can eat a little less at breakfast and lunch to save up for a bigger supper.
One could justify all manner of meals out with the Weight Watcher's system... you can save up for Chinese food or pizza or KFC...
But with diabetes it sometimes sucks.
Keeping the blood sugar steady is the goal.
And going out to eat isn't quite as fun as it used to be. Don't get me wrong- I love taking a break from cooking and cleaning up, and I love going places where I can try things I wouldn't make at home.
But most places aren't very diabetes friendly.
Pasta? Pizza? Chinese?
I still have to make good choices, but it's a lot harder when the place only serves refined white flour noodles and bread.
McDonald's has some of the best diabetes choices, with salads and deli sandwiches on whole wheat buns. Zellers is pretty good too, as far as offering multi-grain bread as a choice for their sandwiches.
The boys are away, and I'll stop moaning about it and just enjoy going out tonight, in spite of the sugar issues!
