Mine is tuna but I can't keep eating tuna every day… I will get sick of it. Anyone willing to share theirs?

Eggs and some sort of meat do it for me. With the many varieties of omelets out there, I have them several times a week and often times,once a day. I find getting creative with them helps fight the boredom of eating them often.

I usually have the same thing for breakfast and lunch each day with my dinner being varied. For breakfast, I'll have 2 slices of Wasa Light Rye Crisp Bread with 2 tbsp of sugar-free jam or fresh fruit and about 1/4 cup of plain Greek (Fage brand) yogurt. With the milk in my coffee, it comes to 30 grams of carb. For lunch, I'll eat an apple that I've cored and sliced into twelve wedges. I slather about 4 tbsps of all-natural Peanut Butter (just peanuts and salt) on the apple slices. Depending on the size of the apple, it comes to 39 to 45 grams of carb. The apple is sweet and crunchy and with the peanut butter, I find it very satisfying. When I have a snack craving, I'll reach for almonds or walnuts or peanuts.

Dear Helene, I feel your pain trying to get your diabetes in control without starving to death. The most important thing to remember is that you have started taking control of your diabetes instead of it taking care of you. The longer you have control, the better you will begin to feel. This being said, however, I know how difficult it is to figure out how much you can eat and what works for you. My favorite go-tos for keeping me from eating something that has too many carbs are: mixed nuts (almonds, cashews, walnuts etc.), whole wheat pretzels, peanut butter, cut-up vegetables, plain Greek yogurt with my own choice of fruit mixed-in. I always have something on hand that I can eat, so I'm not hunting for something last minute. I hope this helps!
