Quick Tip Thursday: Keep Medications And Meals In Sync

You may experience hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) if you eat too few calories in comparison to your diabetes medications. Having too much food can cause hyperglycemia (high blood sugar). Discuss managing your meal schedule and medications with your diabetes health care team.

Quick meal ideas

The image says: "If you wait long enough to cook dinner, everyone will eat cereal. Follow me for more recipes."

Do you have any go-to quick recipes for those nights when you just can't cope?

Here are a few things I have relied on:
1. Vegetarian Chili: Dump a can of beans, a can of tomatoes, a small can of corn, some chili or taco seasoning, and salt and pepper into a pot and heat through. Serve as is or with toppings like sour cream, cheese, green onions, and tortilla chips.
2. Scrambled eggs and toast: this is a go to for me if I am specifically needing some fast protein. If I feel up to it, I add some spinach or herbs to the eggs. I might have an orange as "dessert" to balance out the food groups.
3. Instant noodles with add ins: I will prepare the noodles according to the instructions and then add whatever I have in the fridge - spinach, cilantro/coriander, tomato, cucumber, zucchini, etc. Then I fry an egg to serve on top. If I feel extra fancy, I'll also sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds on it.
4. Yogurt with chia, ground flax, hemp, fruit, and granola: this is fairly self- explanatory, but I usually let it sit for ten minutes so the chia and flax can absorb the liquid. You can use canned fruit, fresh fruit, frozen fruit, or even jam. I only buy plain yogurt, so the fruit is an important addition for me, but if you have flavoured yogurt, you could skip that step.
