The first step to eating right is buying healthy food... well it seems like a logical first step. So today as I pushed my cart down the isles of the grocery store, I tried to find low carb snack-y things, low fat things, and things that didn't have scientific words for ingredients.
I love salad so I picked up some spinach, Craisins, almonds, clementines and low fat poppy seed salad dressing. I ate it for lunch. Yum.
Finding snacks that are "diabetic" friendly is tricky. I hate having to stick with the regular ol' carrot sticks dipped in some low-fat monstrosity that I had to buy in bulk for some reason. It's boring. This shopping trip I settled for more fruit than veggies because a lot of things are in season like melons and berries.
For dinner this week I am planning on white bean chili, Thai lettuce wraps (not this recipe.. my sister has a better one but it's something like this), fruity curry chicken salad, chicken and rice, and of course leftovers.
