I bought a bundle of celery stalks, chopped them up, and had a few with Jif peanut butter as a snack. I hope I can eat them all before they go rotten.

I decided to try some bitter dark chocolate today - not sure how it will affect my BGs - guess I will find out in a couple of hours

I'm snacking on cheese on 4 to 6 triscuit crackers. Should I replace this with nuts?

In most cases, yes, if you can keep the quantity of nuts you eat to a handful (an ounce) or so.

Six Triscuits have about 17 net grams of carbohydrates; a handful of just about any nuts would come in below 9 net grams (and could be as low as 2-3 grams). Cheese (unless it has sweet stuff in it or on it) doesn't have carbs to speak of. The trick is to keep the amount of nuts eaten to a handful. That's tough for me sometimes.

I had an oatmeal raisin cookie this morning - my BGs were at 120. Curious to see how much my BG will increase in the next hour as the result of the cookie.

Since changing my Basal insulin there has been some subtle differences in my BG behavior after eating. On my old insulin eating an oatmeal raisin cookie would significantly impact my BG levels. Curious to see if this will still be the case.

Fun and games! I haven't had an oatmeal raisin cookie in years because of the BG issue from days gone by. Hopefully it doesn;t have as great of an impact now. It was tasty!

Did not turn out well - just reinforcement that this still has negative impacts - an hour later my BGs shot up from 120 to 200 - oops - I won't be doing that again ...

Apples and peanut butter. They're so much easier to prepare than celery (though, oddly, I think the celery tasted better with the peanut butter). I don't know what they do to my blood sugar.

My latest is a small half-oz pkg of Whisps (parmesan crackers) with some labneh as spread/dip. 2 carbs.
