It’s Fall Break and that means we actually make and eat breakfast together! While I was getting groceries this week, I found Kodiak Cakes. Luke had two waffles with sugar free syrup and a cup of Fairlife milk for 45g carbs and 25g protein! TWENTY-FIVE GRAMS OF PROTEIN! (And they’re tasty, too!) I think we… Continue reading Breakfast for the win!
It’s so hard for me to get Luke to eat breakfast. Apparently, while his genes were sorting themselves out in the womb, he grabbed his grandma’s anti-breakfast gene. I’ve tried sweet (with protein, of course). I’ve tried eggs and bacon. I’ve tried easy, pop-in-the-microwave. And I’ve tried make-ahead-of-time-freeze-and-warm-up. Before diagnosis, although I didn’t like it,… Continue reading Pumpkin zucchini muffins.

I chalked his skinniness up to being a swimmer and having practices five days a week for one and a half hours each. And, that very… Continue reading Mission: Impossible.
I’m always trying to find lower-carb options to make for meals and snacks. We believe the lower carb Luke eats, the steadier his sugars. (Although we certainly don’t ban all carbs from him!) My husband also tries to stick to a ketogenic diet. I truly think eating less carbs would be beneficial to me, as well. However, it’s… Continue reading Low carb chocolate chip cookies.
Luke is an absolute pasta lover. Unfortunately, regular pasta is one of the foods that cause major spikes in his blood sugar. Shortly after diagnosis, I found Carba-Nada Pasta at Meijer. There are only 24g of carbs in 1/5 of the bag! It’s pretty tasty, too! Speaking of pretty tasty, I found an amazing recipe for Lemon… Continue reading Low carb pasta anyone?
