If given a day without Diabetes, my husband and I have an ongoing list of things I would eat with reckless abandon.  So sit back and indulge with me.

Tortellini Alfredo – the dish I asked my mom for every birthday before I was diagnosed

A turkey and sharp cheddar cheese sandwich on a giant, slightly toasted bagel, with mayo and lettuce (I think about this one a lot)

Bagels and lots of cream cheese

Apple pie, followed by Cherry Pie, followed by Blueberry Pie

A Grilled Cheese sandwich on unhealthy, totally generic, white bread

A chair in front of a soft serve ice cream machine – Chocolate and vanilla twist and I’m so happy

A Cheeseburger or a hot dog with a bun – too many years of eating these with a fork and knife

Chocolate glazed Donuts

Old Fashioned Crullers – locally Grebe’s Bakery would be the best choice

Pizza – any kind that I didn’t make at home with a “diabetic friendly” crust

Waffle Fries – like a bucket full

Cranberry, orange and white chocolate oatmeal cookies

Cereal…so many different kinds…in giant bowls with lots of bananas.  My mouth is seriously watering right now.

Ethnic food – All those foods that I would love to try but are too scary because I don’t know the carb count

Pancakes –  as a kid my grandpa would take me to the “all you can eat pancakes” tent at the state fair.  I wish I could go back and tell that my little kid self to honestly eat “all” that I could.

Pop tarts – I craved these when I was pregnant, don’t ask me why

Carrot Cake, Chocolate Cake, Funfetti Birthday Cake

Peanut Butter and Real Grape Jelly

Diabetic Mama of Twins fueled by my family, working out, eating, dog walking, getting lost in the woods and insulin. Writing to share the journey this Type 1 diagnosis has taken me on since 2007.
