'Lunch' today was a post-workout smoothie:

1.5 scoops of my Protein powder, a little glutamine powder, Splash of Cream (about 2 tbsp), 1/4c of greek yogurt (strawberry - can't stand plain), about 1/2c of combined strawberries and blackberries (frozen), a small handful of spinach and 4 baby carrots and one packet of stevia.

Calories 428
Carbs (g) 26
Protein (g) 40
Fat (g) 19
Net Carbs 23

I Added water (approximately 1 cup) to all the ingredients until I had the consistency I wanted.

The cream and greek yogurt helped make it REALLY rich, almost like a berry milkshake. Nom.

My lunch was beef/cheese roll-ups made with wafer-thin slices of my deli roast beef, with a little daub of cream cheese rolled up in it. My land those are delicious little tidbits!

Lunch for me today was some white albacore tuna with mayo, and I used lettuce leaves as wraps and ate little mini tuna wraps. They were delicious! I also had a small honey crisp apple. Good lunch!

Noon test was 98. Lunch was a couple of ham and swiss rollups, two pickles and maybe a dozen almonds, washed down with a Hint water.

[grumble] And even with five units of Novolog, my sugar will probably be 140+ after two hours. [/grumble]

NotBubba, it could be the ham. I discovered, with the help and suggestion by another forum friend, that lunch meat can have alot of sugar in it. I ate honey ham (should have known just from the honey part right?) and it spiked my sugar. I tried it again today, and sure enough was up there. So, no more honey ham for me! I'll be using another type that does not have as much sugar or carb in it. (Actually many lunch meats are high in carbs so be careful with the ones you eat). Live and learn right? Good Luck!

Never in a million years would I have thought of that! Great info, thanks. It's Eckrich Ham off the Bone sliced paper-thin...six slices, three slices of swiss cheese as wrappers. Was delicious, so it most likely did have some sugary goodness hidden inside...

Quickly googled and found the nutrition info. Not bad on the surface, but we'll see...

Plain almonds? Or some with a delicious candy coating?
