While at our most recent endo appointment, she asked if we have been having better luck with the post-breakfast blood sugar spike. She asked if we tried having lunch foods for breakfast and if that helped at all. I said I didn’t really notice a difference so we’re back to breakfast foods. She asked what she normally eats and Q chimed in “Toaster Strudel.”
Of all times that a child should be seen and not heard!
I explained that cereal and oatmeal really seem to spike it but for some reason Toaster Strudel hasn’t been that bad.
I tried to justify this horrible food choice and in fact I can’t believe that I’m admitting it to you.
“Hello. My name is Leighann. And I let my child eat Toaster Strudel.”
The endo said that because they have pastry, they presumably have more fat than say, Pop Tarts (which I have NEVER purchased for Q*). The fat may be slowing down the carbs and lessening the spike.
The EMLA cream looks like Toaster Strudel
I wanna eat it. True dat, double trudel!
I was LMAO for sure.
Go over to Neurotic City for the Lazy Pancreas lyrics.
*Q had her very first Pop Tart this week at school when a child brought them in for their morning “healthy” snack. Me? I keep sending in frozen, artificial color-free, HFCS-free yogurt tubes.
