I could not drink my coffee this morning. One sip and the acid hit my stomach and I did not want any more.
I did not throw it out, I chose to cool it and see if I could not make it work as iced with some milk later. ...(it is now later, I threw it out wasting 12 cents)
I had iced tea and a breakfast identical to yesterday. I made the last of the flat bread with the rest of the ham salad and some pomegranate.
Coffee .12 (I paid for the coffee, even it it was tossed)
Ham mayonnaise .60
Carbs 40 grams
I am really getting sick of this budget restriction and even more the carb restrictions. I understand how incredibly difficult it is to be diabetic and always HAVE to make the right choices.
I have learned a lot walking in these shoes. Even with the tiny restricted portion, nothing makes me more happy than pasta.
So I had it for lunch.
I used no cheese but added capers to the sauce for that extra volt of flavor.
1.5 ounce of pasta .12
Iced tea .03
Carbs 40 grams
Dinner was an original. I had those rib tips that had Asian Spice on them and was in the mood for tomato gravy. (tomato gravy is what Southern women make when they are on a diet, it still has butter, but since you add tomatoes it becomes a magic diet food)
I began with a kohlrabi which I just peeled and ate sliced.
I then put a tablespoon of butter in the pan and added a touch of flour to brown stirring in water and adding a chopped tomato and the ribs. I let that gravy simmer while I boiled a potato .50, added butter .40 and cabbage .15, plus some yogurt .19. the Total is 1.24.
I had half of the potato mix and all of the rib tips with gravy.
Potato mix .62
Carbs 45 grams
I had no idea I was making such an expensive meal. Wow. It is a good thing I had only half of the potato mix.
I kept the carbs under control which was the most important thing.
Let's see if I managed my money well. I had a potential 6.23. My day total was 4.65 leaving me 1.58 to carry over. I did fine. Calories 1,439
