“Bro” bars (aka Strong & KIND bars) taste good, fill me up

  Note: I was not compensated for this post nor did KIND know about this post prior to me publishing it.  One of the questions I took to my dietician was snack ideas that would be good for my hypoglycemia, good for me overall, and were reasonable in cost.  She highly recommends KIND bars. Originally, I…

Dietician-approved snacks

I went to my dietician to find out what snacks I could eat, as a hypoglycemic, that are good for me, will keep my blood sugar even, and keep me full. She really emphasized balancing carbs, protein, and fat in my snacks, so you’ll see that below. I had asked specifically for very portable snacks…

Healthy breakfast sandwich to go

Ever on the look-out for more natural (NOT a protein bar) meals I can haul with me to the gym and eat after my workout, I came up with this breakfast sandwich that’s oh-so-good and oh-so-good for you. With a blend of high fiber, fat and protein, it’s hypoglycemic-friendly and tastes great!

Hypoglycemic? Diabetic? Be wary of diet plans and nutrition advice

Last week in Rotary, a Chiropractor was presenting on overall health including, of course, spinal health. What I thought was interesting was that he spent a great deal of his allotted 20 minutes talking about diet and exercise.

Fitness Coffee, what I think about it

I know! Lets call our new coffee “Fitness Coffee” and say that it will help aid in weight loss with a balanced diet and exercise plan and sell it for about twice as much as even organic coffee! Never mind that a balanced diet and exercise plan are the true reasons people lose weight and don’t worry about people…

High-fiber, blueberry bran muffins

If you are a hypoglycemic, fiber is one of your best friends. Studies have shown that fiber is good for people with diabetes and that usually means it’s good for us too! Below is a recipe for some high fiber, blueberry bran muffins. I should note upfront that I did not originate this recipe. I…

Being realistic about the way you eat

Oftentimes, when I tell someone that I am hypoglycemic (usually as I apologetically begin eating in front of them), I get a lot of unwarranted advice back at me. While these people are well-meaning, their advice is often unrealistic. I shouldn’t be having the beer I’m having because hypos shouldn’t drink, I shouldn’t ever eat bread,…

How I lost the weight (and keep it off)!

About 7 years ago, I weighed 40lbs more than I do now. I thought I’d share my story of how I got there, how I lost the weight, and what I do now to keep it off. How I got there “You’ll never be thin,” said my family doctor to me when I was a…
