There are some things I just can't handle BG-wise, things that, of course, I crave! I sometimes think of them as being in my D food graveyard, headstone and all.
Today the food I missed the most was bagels. Everything bagels. Everything bagels with lox, cream cheese, and a sliver of onion.
RIP bagels ;(
What's in your D food graveyard?
I'm drinking my morning cappuccino, Molly. It's a coffee hour! With wi-fi! I usually drink flavored espresso of one kind or another, hazelnut being a favorite. I use almond milk in mine to reduce carbs as well as calories. Took some getting used to but now I like it. As long as it makes good foam I'm happy.
Hi Molly. Have you tried steel-cut oatmeal? It is terribly low on the glycemic index (under 45, I've read). I make it with dried fruit and it is surprisingly yummy!
Erm.. Depresses me to think about this one :)
Rice (brown allowed), pasta, bread, cereals, potatoes, most sauces, the vast majority of fruits, soda, fruit juice, sweets, crisps, chips, chocolate, pastries, pizza.. etc..
Pretty much all I eat these days is lean meats, greens, brown rice, eggs and cheese!
I agree, cereal is a big loss...I'm not to the point of "giving up" on a lot of my fav's. I'll pay for it I'm sure!
Thai tea and bubble tea... so sad :(
bagels - Panera Bread Asiago Cheese Bagels toasted with butter, white rice - you know Minute Rice the kind that was a staple in your house growing up, pasta. OK so I listed all the classic "white foods". But I also really miss a ripe juicy peach in the summer or nectarines or clementines. And while I realize I can in fact have them, the bs consequences make me look elsewhere. I have never been a huge fan of desserts but pain au chocolat with all its' buttery goodness is something I crave. I like the term food graveyard and considering this discussion was posted only a few days ago, there are already 5 pages of responses so I guess a lot of other PWD have their own food graveyards.
Actually nothings really in my D food graveyard, just not as often nor in the amounts I -used- to consume. Yep, I still have ice cream --- now & then, and just a serving, I no longer consume 1/2 a pint, or more like I used to. Who knew? Yea, apparently there's 4 servings in a pint! Same with cookies, I look at the suggested serving size and 2's enough. Moderation works for me. Plus, hop on the bike for a spin around the neighborhood - before or after meals.
Actually...there are less carbs/there is less starch in the "Minute Rices" and in the non-treated variety!!
If I do not count every baked good or candy (both of which I admit I will indulge in with good advance planning and sufficient bolus)and I just go to the not so indulgent stuff -- it is hands down for me PASTA. It sends me skyrocketing and I have to flood myself with insulin to turn off the impact. It just doesn't like me one bit.
I'm so glad to see all the replies. It's so enlightening to see (as if we didn't know already) how some of us can tolerate foods others can't. Yet again, strong evidence that YDMV. Thanks you guys, anxious to see more!
Pancakes and French toast with rich maple syrup. I'll have a bite of someone else's but steer pretty clear of them for myself. Same with a loaded baked potato.
I admit that I don't really consider any foods utterly dead. I might have 1/3 - 1/2 as much as I did in my previous life, but I eat pretty much anything I want.
Perhaps spending time on this site will twist my thinking on the subject. I guess time will tell.
