BUT, (and YES, there's a but,) this will mean that there's a very good chance that achieving a post meal Blood Sugar Nirvana might not happen at all.
I'll admit it, I'm a sucker for the chips & salsa, but I never order rice.
Still, I never seem to be able to make Mexican food work for me. For some reason the chips and salsa, fish tacos and Cactus Salad make my blood sugars reach for the sky! As does the chicken or veggie fajitas, chorizo and black bean soup, etc.
So instead of thinking about it until it makes me crazier than usual, I've decided to make Mexican food work WITH me. YEP, yours truly is going to embrace the Temporary Basal rate and increase it by 1/2 and for 2.5 hours- both during the meal and after.
And like always, I'll count my carbs, go extra heavy on the hot sauce and enjoy my meal!
I'll also be testing like crazy afterwards, and that's OK.
Hell, I might even change my lancet!
I'll make this work. But even if I don't, I 'm trying, and TRYING in both life and diabetes eventually leads to figuring things out and actually DOING.
And you know what? THAT works for me~
