OMG, I am such a pig! At 79, I eat practically everything I've ever eaten (except for pizza and alcohol) all my life. A1c was 6.3 last blood test. BUT, since going on the pump 30 months ago, I have gained 15 pds, due maybe to all the insulin I get now through the pump. Did so much better, glucose levels, with injection therapy, two insulins, and metformin. Oh, boy, how I miss the metformin.

Judyp, why blame it on the insulin pump? What are you eating that requires the insulin?

Dry Pizza (no sauce)

Fried up some hamburger and cut up pepperoni and stirred in some Parmesan cheese. Meanwhile, heated up a piece of pizza crust I keep in the freezer, melted provolone on it, and topped with the hot meat. Yum.

(no sauce because I didn't want to open a jar of spaghetti/pizza sauce just for one piece. )

Today, I had a big craving for a hamburger and fries from this place called Brenda's Burgers.

So, I went to McD's and ordered the #5 Artisan Grilled Chicken Sandwich with side salad instead of fries and Ranch dressing. All of a sudden I started to smell fries...LOL...I was really craving fries.

When I got to my office, buried under my Artisan Grilled Chicken was an order of fries...LOL! The Universe came through for me

SIGH...I threw them away

I go to Wawa and get a whole wheat shorti, ham and swiss, extra oil and vinegar, cukes, roasted red peppers, spinach and lettuce.

Just always do that.

My lunch reminded me of Kraft dinner, so maybe I'll call it KD(keto dinner).

Basically, I took a can of 1 inch long, waxed beans yellow, and made a sauce for it using butter, franks hot sauce, and Greek feta dressing.

When I was stirring the sauce into the bowl, the beans really reminded me of KD noodle. I have to admit, the beans have a relatively bland flavor to them that easily takes just about any sauce flavor I can dream of.

This meal can be healthy or sinful, just by controlling the sauce.
