I use glucose tabs or smarties ...I don't want or need the extra calories from food or coke but I would think it would be a great time to get in a serving of fruit! I have on occasion used it as an opportunity to eat a big cookie at the mall lol but I find if I treat a low with food then I just end up too high. I feel I have better control with the glucose tabs or smarties..
I am surprised grapefruit works quickly enough. I hesitate to use any fruit, except grapes or mango or something exceptionally sweet, thinking that the fiber would slow the effects. I use a low as an excuse to drink juice or eat candy.....15 grms worth. I love the blueberry preserves idea!
I use juice boxes at home or work. Juicy juice makes small ones with 16g carb each. I like the punch better than the grape or apple.
Glucose tabs while on the move. I like the green apple but they are not sold in the big jars.
Nerds, all the way. After Halloween I stock up and use those as much as I can. Once those run out, I default to Mentos, or small packages of fruit snacks. I'm big on things that can survive in my purse :/
At night I tend to go with a juice box because it involves less effort - five big slurps on the straw and I'm ready to go back to sleep.
This is what I use most often, but I've been known to eat: ice cream straight from the carton, a giant bowl of cereal, Skittles, Starburst, licorice, M &Ms, bread with honey, finger-fruit, and doughnuts. None of these are good choices, obviously, but when I'm not thinking too clearly, it winds up being a "whatever sounds good" thing.
