Puff pastry. Just can’t digest it (too fatty), so working out the insulin intake for it is a nightmare. But I love it. (Chocolate is a very close second on both accounts.) I also have problems with rice. But I’m not so keen on it, so it’s not that much of a problem
@ckoei – Scones made with cream and lemonade, not to mention tomato jam? My mama will be spinning in her grave! Sadly though, that’s the only item on the list I don’t come a cropper with, and that’s only because I’ve never eaten it. No wonder I shoot up in industrial quantities!
@annette: As sweet as my pee in 1993 (otherwise it would’ve been chutney? atchar? and as scone-topping substance unsuitable enough to induce traditionalist English dames to do somersaults…). I’d rather not add insult to injury by tipping a bit of oat bran into the dough – even if it usually does help to prevent “fast” food scurrying into you bloodstream too quickly, and it doesn’t parch out the end-product like wheat bran does.
Always a complete disaster… Lots of little nibbly bits, and almost nothing on the table that isn’t packed with carbs (and fat). Never have a clue how much I’ve eaten, and the dose is usually wildly out in one direction or another.
I forget to bolus my pump sometimes for eating Felix’s left-over supper (my son, age 6) – it gives me free range to eat chicken, curly fries, sausages, pizza, vegetable fingers etc… as a mum’s reward for trying to get him to eat it (and obviously failing – and no, I don’t eat cold left over veggies!)
I get peckish at the time he eats (4.30 – 5.30pm) and forget I’m eating my supper later.. Anyway, I though kid’s food didn’t count?!… like the buffet option – I’m terrible – I just keep grazing..
Pizza anybody, I call it my seesaw food. one minute your up n the next your way down. i love a good pizza hut though. Maybe a suitable venue for a “shoot up or put up”AGM. At least its a way of making sure you get dessert !!
@Kevin – I can picture it now… conversation drowned out by the clicking of finger prickers… discarded insulin cartridges littering the table… gasps from other customers as the group tries synchronised injecting… the mind boggles!
@kevin – out a sense of perverse cruelty, I did arrange one Shoot Up night out in an Italian restaurant. Everyone dealt with it surprisingly well and put me to shame (not for the first (or, I suspect, the last) time!)
@kevin @teloz – it is a bit weird eating out with a bunch of diabetics. You’re so used to be the only one that’s checking and injecting, etc., that it’s odd when pretty much everyone round the table is doing it. God knows what the waiters all think…
