I've decided to experiment with stabilizing my blood sugar today by eating more small meals with protein and fat in them. I haven't quite got it all figured out yet, as a dilute prune seltzer sent my blood sugar spinning shortly after breakfast. Perhaps it's time to start using ARA instead of prune juice My levels are always in normal range, but I'm beginning to think I'm better off with a narrower range. Maybe it's the non-secretor in me.
I started the day with most of 2 lemony pickled eggs. My son ate a little of them. Then came the prune seltzer about an hour later, which had to quickly be followed by half my pre-made lunch of buffalo patty and sauteed green beans. 3 hours later I had the other half thereof. Before contemplating dinner, I ate one of my son's turkey meatballs. (I made a double batch of them and froze them last Saturday.)
For dinner I cooked a wild sockeye salmon filet. (Costco carried them for a short while, but lately my Costco doesn't have any wild salmon or cod, just some avoid-filled salmon burgers and farmed fish.) I poured some of my lemon/olive oil dressing over it, and sprinkled with dill and sliced garlic, wrapped it in parchment and baked it. This salmon is so red that it's hard to tell when it's done, it's also tapered so the thin parts cook faster than the thick. I had it a little underdone, ate the thin part, then cooked the thick part a little more. I'm just glad I didn't overcook it like I usually do. Oh, the best part... I sauteed my baby greens because they were not going to last much longer and it's easier to eat large amounts of greens after cooking them down. Once they were wilted, I served the salmon on top of them. Beautiful, satisfying and delicious!
My son even ate one spinach leaf, and quite a few bites of salmon. I'm glad he loves fish, that will serve him and his A-ness very well in life.
