Last July, I started feeling some discomfort in my chest when I reached the 18th or 19th floor of my 24-floor daily climb. And I could only ride my bike 10 minutes or so without feeling discomfort. Went in September for a stress test, which didn't show anything. Went back a month later for a stress + echocardiogram. Showed that my heart wasn't getting enough oxygen. Went in for an angiogram in December; they found a 90% blockage in one of my coronary arteries and put in a stent. Now I'm back to riding my bike and climbing stairs. (Different building, though--now I walk up 13 and down 21.)

In my old building, we could access our employer's floors from the interior fire stairwell--so I could walk down to the first floor on my way to lunch, walk back up to the 24th floor after lunch, and get back into my office. In my new building, there is no access from the fire stairwell--once you're in, you can only get out from the ground floor. So . . . for the time being, I work on the 8th floor of a 21-story building. I can enter the stairwell, walk up 13 floors to the 21st floor, and then walk back down to the first floor.

Ok, there have been some pages here so I can't go through every post so apologize if I just repeat something but I agree on what I read about avocados. They're amazingly healthy and good for you and you can do fun stuff. Love that recipe with rasberries and stuff. I do kind of the same but just avocado, rasberry and stevia as sweetener if you want as a sorbet ice cream. The rasberries has to be frozen first of course.

I also want to add that I almost never eat dairies even though I have no problem with it, just because I feel more healthy skipping it, except maybe for an egg here and there for breakfast.

I drink a lot of green smoothies.
A typical one would be:
2-3 pieces of broccoli
5cm(sorry I'm Swedish) of cucumber in pieces
handful of lettuce and spinach
1 avocado
juice from 1/2 lemon
1/2 teaspoon of spirulina(optional)
1 banana
1/4 apple with some seeds and nuts of your choice with coconut flakes(natural organic.. no sweets or sugar or weird stuff added to them).
Then add water of your liking but I have probably 2 cups of water at least so I get 2 big glasses of smoothies out of this.

This is a pretty low-carb smoothie even though the fruits are there due to a lot of more vegetables that will keep the blood sugar in control and your health on top. At least for me

I could do this if I left out the banana...I could probably do the 1/4 apple and not have a spike...my meter just won't let me have banana. But, then I don't take med of any kind...you've not told us how you manage...are you on any med and what is your Fasting number and how is your A1C?

Thanks for the recipe,

Yeah, the best part about recipes is that you can change them The avocado do most of the job of making it awesome in my opinion! Well, here's the thing. Im type 1 but when I eat alkaline food with fat and protein and keep the carbs to a minimum, and exercise good and have a proper lifestyle, I do not need any medication. But if I don't, I will have to take insulin shots but still very sensitive and don't need much of it.

My fasting number is different everyday of course but always good and my A1C(HbA1c in Sweden for some reason...) I have no idea since I haven't been to a doctor in a year since I don't need to

Default coconut milk yoghurt

I revisited the "So Delicious" coconut milk yoghurt. I mixed in coconut cream* - about 1:1 (sort of what you'all who eat dairy do by adding HWC to Greek Yoghurt.)

I liked the result - I did need to flavor it and add a little sweetener. I divide the mixture in thirds and have one of these with breakfast. I checked my BG and this "diluted" version of the yoghurt doesn't give my BG a rise. Nice to have a "new" food.
-------
* what I call coconut "cream" is this... I take a can of coconut milk and set it in the refrigerator - the fatty part rises to the top and gets thick from the cold. I open the bottom of the can and pour off the liquid (which contains a lot of the carbs) and save the "cream".

---------

I had some Walden Farms Strawberry Spread. As anyone knows who has bought this so-called "spread" it is not very spreadable. However, I put a spoonfull on a plate and "chopped" it up using the side of the spoon. Then slid these little pieces into the yoghurt - sort of like little bits of strawberry. It was really good this way. I have some apricot spread, also, and am looking forward to trying this "fruit", too.

I get tired of trying to spread the WF spreads too, but I like the flavors, so I often mash them up with a spoonful of peanut butter and/or dairy butter. It makes them more manageable. 'Course they aren't free foods anymore, but have fat added, and my short fuse stays a little longer when I don't have to keep trying to make it stay on the cracker.
