115 was Joella's reading this a.m.

Her plan for Eating   yesterday included:  Two tablespoons of oatmeal (before cooking) for breakfast,  A fried spam sandwich with two slices of bread for lunch and for dinner peanut butter on saltine crackers, a fresh whole orange and a bedtime snack of milk. 

Peanut butter is a good choice for diabetics because it has a low glycemic index meaning it absorbs slowly and doesn't cause  sugar to spike.  HOWEVER,  peanut butter is a DENSE high calorie food so portion control is very important.   It does have a good combination of fat, protein and carbohydrate so can be used as a fat exchange, protein exchange and carbohydrate many exchanges used is dependent on the portion or amount eaten.  Joella said to say "Hello" to all of her internet friends and would like to hear how you are doing and what is working for you in your FIGHT DIABETES journey.
