Have you everr noticed that the Standard American Diet (SAD) is like quicksand? After decades of programming about what is healthy- it is very easy to get sucked back in again and again and eat "healthy" things which will jack up your blood sugar.

I just prepared some Vitamix bran muffins for breakfast. Each muffin (when you divide the batter into 12 small muffins) has 100 calories, 6 grams of fiber, and 3 grams of protein. I added 1 cup of blueberries into the bowl, and it made 9 medium sized muffins. I had half of one.

Today is going to be an especially busy day. I wish I had drank some green juice instead and now I would feel great. Instead my blood sugar is elevated. I imagine this must be a super common experience for (non-medicated) diabetics: taking the position that you will eat healthy food- only to notice that food jack your blood sugar. It is a very unpopular topic on "curing diabetes naturally" type boards. If you mention a slip- there is always someone ready to lecture you. But of course it must be common, or else everyone would easily heal their diabetes. I am going to keep telling the truth of my experience. We can never change, without looking at what is actually happening.

Anyway- I am returning to the practice of blogging at perfectbloodsugar.blogspot because it helps me stay focused on managing my health.

Last night I reviewed the 100 things to do before 2016. I had forgotten even making the list. It was appropriate because tonight I am going to a party where we will talk about what is yet to come. Today I begin again- taking a few resources with me. One will be this blog.
