My "plan" is sort of based on avoiding chores? Eating can be a chore and a lot of times, if I run into a blueberry scone, I can think "hmmm, interesting, blueberries are a superfood, it looks yummy, do I want to spend 2-4 hours dealing with it?" and the answer is usually "no". I would self-deprecatingly claim that "oh, I'm just lazy..." but to me, it's not worth it. If I eat a lot of vegetables, I feel like I recover more quickly from runs and, perhaps coincidentally, my BG is relatively flat which, in turn, makes it easier to go for a run, or sit on my butt, without BG flying all over the place. It's also nice to have people visiting my desk remark "you are so healthy!" all day while I munch on carrots, broccoli, cheese and nuts instead of donuts, cake and the usual "office diet".
We stopped at Starbuck's yesterday to get some coffee on our way to Milwaukee and I noticed they have Kind bars. I'd offer to "trade" her scone for a Kind bar. Perhaps they're supposed to unload the baked goods but the cranberry Kind bars are a more reasonable 18ish G of carbs (I think, the one's @ Starbucks might be a different "model" than the boxed ones @ Whole Foods? They looked skinny).
That being said, I will still indulge in big, greasy food pretty regularly. This has been a slight problem these days as Mrs & Junior have been bringing dinner home after the late Friday PM dance class, leading to lows (from the big bolus) followed by highs (grease, meat?) that take all night to clean up. Running season and no dinner Fridays can't come too soon for my BG!
