Blood Sugar running totally out of control what could I do about it but go back to basics.
I had a little moment when I realised that my body wasn’t performing as it normally does. So I checked my blood pressure and cholesterol and my blood sugar. Blood sugar had gone through the roof. Oh dear and I thought I had been very good in controlling my sugar intake. This clearly wasn’t so…. I decided to take a few days to jiggle my eating habits. I started portion control , taking out carbs, went on to soups , juices and salads and good old fashioned water (strictly no caffeine). Just 4 days later my sugar levels were near to normal and I was full of energy and vitality. I broke my fast with a delicious salad made up of the following ingredients:
1/2 a pack of Feta Cheese
1/2 an Avocado
1 large wedge of Cucumber
2 sticks of Celery (chopped)
2 Cherry tomatoes
4 White Grapes (chopped)
Small handful of Walnuts (chopped and sprinkled on top)
1 tablespoon of Virgin olive oil
1/2 a Lemon (juiced)
1 Toasted Wholemeal Pitta Bread
Put ingredients into a large bowl, stirred around, added a measuring of Mediterranean herbs which I sprinkled on top . I then left for 1/2 an hour. Toasted the wholemeal pitta bread, opened up the Pitta and filled with the salad.
There was enough for 2 so Kate and I had a little feast with our feet up my the log fire…yum
