Starch Solution – Day 23

Blood sugar this morning was 102.   Weight 204.  Yesterday’s post-meal blood sugar was 225 – I had eaten a bunch of rice and corn with no fiber, fat, and not much protein, so that’s pretty much as bad as it gets, but still that’s too high.  I’m going to have to be more careful about food combinations to be sure there’s something in there blunting glucose.

I have an amazing and easy split pea soup recipe to share.  Get a 16oz bag of split peas.  Rinse them.  Throw them in the slow cooker on high for 10 hours with 8 cups of water, a Tbs of salt, some diced onions and garlic.  The end.  I use this split pea soup all the time – I’ll have it over rice or spinach, or with mushrooms – it makes everything taste better.

I’m going to get labs done at the 1 month mark to see if things are going in the right direction, so probably next Thursday.   I have really gained an appreciation for how easy it is to get your nutrition from meat and eggs.  This vegan stuff requires a whole new plan.  I’m such a whiner.
