For those who were asking yesterday during the Facebook Feed, here is a copy of the Glycemic Index we use. Please feel free to download it and print it off. We hope it will serve as a guideline when deciding what foods to eat.
(from the internet)
The Glycemic Index is a scale that ranks carbohydrate rich foods by how much they raise blood glucose sugar levels compared to a standard food. The Glycemic Index measures the increase in blood glucose levels during the two hours after eating a particular kind of food. Some foods that contain carbohydrate create a quick and more dramatic rise in blood glucose, such as white rice and dry cereal.
My wife has always loved collecting cookbooks. What is even better than her collecting them is she actually uses them on a regular basis. Before my diagnosis, Jamie would often use her cookbooks as a source of inspiration for our meal times. Now, I think she is capable enough to write her own. Even though Jamie is a very gifted cook, she hasn’t stopped purchasing new cookbooks. In fact, since July, the amount of new cookbooks that have been added to her her collection is at 16 (well that’s a little excessive don’t you think?
