So I’ve given up calling posts “Wordless Wednesday” because I’m pretty sure I am never, ever Wordless. Instead I’ve come up with “What’s That Wednesday” since I always show you a picture and then proceed to explain it.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what I use to treat my lows. I’ve gotten pretty sick of juice over the years. I’ve also gotten tired of glucose tablets, even delicious ones like GlucoLift, so I reserve them for when I’m out and about. (They’re portable and durable!!) I’m also trying to break my Pavlovian habit of treating lows with candy, so instead I’m relying on small packets of organic fruit snacks and apple sauce. But still, sometimes I can’t help but want to treat with candy. Enter these:
These are Watermelon Rings I found at Whole Foods. I’m hoping I’m not misguided in believing they don’t have as much bad stuff in them as regular gummies. Even so, there is still a big problem with these. THEY TASTE WAY TOO GOOD. I know I only need one of these to bring up a low. And it is nearly impossible for me to eat just one of these. (By the way, I’m not low now but I may have just bolused for and ate one ring while taking this picture.)
And so, my low solution has become my low problem. Okay, diabetes, you win this time . . . .
**** Update: After doing more research, I have determined these are Surf Sweets Watermelon Rings. They are vegan, organic and free of gluten, dairy and soy. Some Target stores are test marketing them, so I'm on the lookout!!
