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
