So all the health talk yesterday got me thinking. I NEED to get back to eating the way I was when I was eating mostly veggies. I need to stop this pre-diabetes I have in it's tracks and so I started researching. After reading all the symptoms I was shaken. I have a lot of the symptoms of type 2 diabetes. So, more research, mostly on what to do. Aunt G has diabetes, and told me I need to be eating like a diabetic now to avoid getting it. So looking it up, non-starchy veggies are my friend!!
So I'm going to the store today to pick up veggies galore! I have plenty of brown rice and other healthy starches that we bought when we first found out I had pre-diabetes, now to use them! I'm also going to pick up the stuff for Green Glow Juice to do in my juicer. I always feel better when I drink it, and I crave less sugar. I was kind of frustrated when I discovered that I don't really have very many ways of cooking/eating non-starchy veggies. Stir fry is a favorite, so I'm going to start doing that again. But some things that I love, I have no idea how to serve! I love artichoke hearts, no idea. I only ever eat canned asparagus, but canned is not an ideal way to eat veggies. There are a lot of veggies I just don't know how to eat. Like kale, very good for you, but I only ever juice it. So I'll be researching that for a while, and then running the recipes by DH, as he has a really good sense of how things will taste when cooked a certain way.
I have not had labs done in a while, and lost the lab sheet for the labs I was supposed to get done last week. Oh well, I'm going back to the doc, so I'll just make it for early morning and fast till I get them done. Hopefully all this healthy thinking is not too late and I'll be still in the 'pre' stage of this.
Off to work out!!
