OK, I know that everyone dreams of ONE DAY without this disease! If you had ONE DAY to eat ANYTHING you wanted, what would that be?

I would go to one of the casino here on the Oregon Coast and go to one of their seafood buffets and have a little bit of everything on my plate (probably 2 or 3 plates to get it all). I'd be so miserable afterwards I wouldn't be able to move but it would be worth it!

I do that, anyway, and wish I hadn't. Eating 3 plates of seafood isn't bad… it takes so much time to pick the crab out of the shell, and I don't like to get messy. When I go to buffets, as my career has been in food service, and I know the origin and raw food costs, I look at value of what's presented. We shop at Cash-and-Carry, where many food service operators get their stuff if they run out before their main order arrives, so I know current wholesale price. Halibut, in WA state, runs about $15/# for instance. Fill up on seafood at the buffets. Skip the pasta. It's overcooked and over sauced. Only one trip through the desserts. You don't go there every day.

We only go to the casinos every so often because of the SMOKING. Washington state law doesn't apply to Indian-owned casinos.

one day with no penalty hmm… strawberry short cake with real whipped cream, strawberry sunday with extra ice cream and real whipped cream, cherry cheesecake the whole thing not just a huge slice, carrot cake with real cream cheese frosting, bags and bags of potato chips, fried bread dough with tons of sugar cinnamon on it, homemade hot apple pie and ice cream, two bags of M&M Peanuts, and fried chicken with a ton of crispy skin on it. OK Im full now I can stop!

I've been pondering this for some time now as I couldn't decide if I should look at this from a Diabetes perspective or from a food allergies perspective. So I decided to do both. If I had one day to eat whatever I wanted without anything affecting me either diabetes or allergies. I would dine on shrimp and lobster and clams and scallops and lake perch etc… (seeing a trend here on what the food allergy is? LOL if not it's seafood and fish and nuts) I'd have french fries with this without worrying if they were cooked in the same oil as the shrimp and fish. I'd have baked potatoes with loads of butter and sour cream. I'd have cheesecake for dessert with blueberry topping dripping down the sides. Good grief if I only had one day, I'd have to eat 100 mini meals to get it all in because the list in my head keeps getting longer and longer.. LOL

I wouldn't be a vegetarian on that day, I'd fill up on all the seafood I could get!!! Fried, baked, broiled, whatever and all the delicious sides to go with it.. hush puppies.. oh I like those.. LOL (I wasn't always allergic to this stuff so I know and remember what it tastes like..)

I'm stopping now before the drool shorts out my laptop LOL

I'd go north to Maine and sit down at Snyders Restaurant and eat a giant lobster dinner a 3 pounder,
with all the fixings, a glass of Rhine wine and strawberry short cake for dessert. That " Works for me." Fred

I like saltines, only 2g carbs each. I crumble 6 saltines into a bowl and add several tablespoons of salsa and stir. That makes a nice 15g carb snack.

Richard! Live alittle, lol, tell us what you would eat if you had ONE DAY without diabetes, anything in the world that you would want to eat all you could of?

I'd love to have a large order of french fries with catsup and a Big Mac. For dessert I'd like a Banana Split Sundae.

Richard157 2009-03-29 09:40:17 -0500 Report

There is a l9ocal pizza place that makes a big calzon that is a foot long. I would have them stuff it with extra cheese, sausage, ham and pepperoni. It would be over 200g carbs. I don't know if I could hold it all at one meal. I would love to try it though. I don't like sugar desserts. Too sweet!

2009-03-29 18:11:20 -0500 Report

Now THAT'S what I wanna see!!! This would be the day you could forget all about having diabetes, about counting carbs, just letting loose!

1 cup graham cracker crumbs
3 tablespoons butter, melted
3 (8 ounce) packages reduced-fat cream cheese
1 cup SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 eggs
1/3 cup reduced fat milk
1/2 cup dulce de leche


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Mix crust ingredients together, and press into a 9-inch springform pan. Place pan on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature.
3. Reset oven temperature to 325 degrees F.
4. Beat cream cheese, SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener and flour together until well mixed and smooth. Add vanilla and mix until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix until smooth. Add milk and mix until well blended.
5. Measure 1/2 cup of the cheesecake batter and pour into a small bowl. Add dulce de leche and stir until well combined.
6. Pour plain batter over crust. Top with dulce de leche batter by placing rounded spoonfuls over the cheesecake batter and gently swirl into plain batter with the tip of knife or spatula.

I really miss the New York style cheesecake that I used to get on my travels to Manhattan. Just once it would feel good to order anything on the menu in a restaurant without having to think about carbs, and those foods that increase my BS dramatically.

I thought about this question for a minute, and currently I eat what I want. It's the quantities that get me down. When I go to a pizza parlor, and order my favorite, WITH anchovies, I can only eat 2 slices. A steak fills me up after 4 or 5 bites. I've learned the lessons too well. We've been doing a lot of hiking the past week, which I think entitles me to extra food, but the same thing happens—- after a few more bites than usual it's time to ask for a doggie bag.

jj57901 2009-03-28 10:54:14 -0500 Report

sounds good. but i think i would eat all the pizza i can get my hands on. most of the time 3 slices does me just fine. after that, my bs climbs. oh yeah, all the hot wings i can eat too. yummy!!!

To go to a crab feed and eat all the crab and gralic bread my heart would desire. Wash it down with red wine, 1/2 a gallon would do. Take 2 hours of cracking and eating crab. This has happened in my younger days. Wont happen again. I did go to a crab feed in January. Didnt eat all the crab I wanted. Didnt eat any garlic bread. Only had one glass of red wine. 2 hours later, my BS was at an acceptable level.

self control is something you aquire when you don't want to give everything up. i eat what i want…i just don't eat the whole thing. sometimes a salad with a BITE of everything on the table that i love. it fills you up and you don't feel deprived.

An In & Out Burger with fries and a chocolate shake. Finish with a fresh ripe juicy mango. Then take a long nap, maybe a permanent one! Good thing the nearest one is about 40 miles away. I have not had a chocolate shake in about 2 years. My stomach is growling!

Fried potatoes and onions. I love fried potatoes and onions but cannot eat them very often because they would cause me to have a panic attack also. I love to smell fried potatoes and onions cooking out in the hall. They make my mouth water.

I also love fried potatoes and onions. Also love mashed potatoes.

Ginetteb 2009-03-04 14:26:13 -0600 Report

Try putting your potato wedges in the oven. Here is how you do it. Put the potatoes on a cookie sheet. Pour about one tablespoon of olive oil or canola oil and make sure that all the potatoes are coated with the oil. Put in the over at 350 degreesfor about 1 hour. They look and taste exactly like french fries but with far less calories and fat.
Good luck!
If I could eat anything I wanted for one single day, I would do exactly what I'm doing now, except more of it without feeling guilty for doing a crime against my own health. I just love to eat.
I need a personal cook, one that will give me what I'm supposed to eat, how much I'm supposed to eat and when I'm supposed to eat. Does anyone know of a cook I could have for free?
