So I used a different peanut/Asian marinade this morning with the hopes of making chicken kabobs on the grill with potatoes and zucchini in between.
Well, I came home, and DID NOT like how it looked at all. It called for peanut butter, sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic, etc. When I opened up the marinade, it looked like I had just shmeared peanut butter all over the chicken! I didn’t even want to take a picture so that my family would see the “before!”
So stir fry it became. I rinsed off the chicken, patted it dry and cut it in bite sized pieces. I then added about 2 tablespoons of corn starch in a bag and coated the chicken with the corn starch, making sure to get off any excess. Fried it about 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in our CAST IRON STIR FRY PAN (yes, I know you will be jealous!)
Once all the chicken was cooked, I removed it to a paper towel to get off any extra oil. Then the veggies go in!
I have no idea exactly how many calories, I had about 700 to spend before dinner. I added 1/2 cup cooked rice to mine (drizzled with szechwan sauce for an extra kick). All I know is was about 40 carbs for the sake of my insulin shot.
BLOOD SUGAR UPDATE:
I did pretty good today, except I noticed something. I took enough insulin to cover my breakfast, but I ended up eating the lower carb item first, i.e., the egg wrap. I got busy with work and later ate the banana. Before my workout I was up to 180. I didn’t mind so much because I knew I was going to run soon and that brought it back down to 130 after my workout.
So at lunch, I decided to take enough insulin for what I would eat right then, and save the apples for later in the afternoon. Since the apple was 15 carbs, I took three units of insulin and it worked like a charm.
I guess that’s the only downside to eating at my desk, is that if I get side tracked, I have to consciously say “you already took your insulin so you have to eat!”
MY SEVEN DAY AVERAGE BLOOD SUGARS ARE 107!
MY FOURTEEN DAY AVERAGE IS 123!
MY 30 DAY AVERAGE IS 125!
See you for breakfast. . .
