I have come to the realization that there are certain foods that can no longer be a regular part of my eating plan.  My mantra is "Moderation not deprivation" however these are foods that I have a hard time consuming in moderation.
  • doughnuts
  • regular or thick crust pizza
  • pancakes
  • white bread
I'm sure my list will get longer as I continue on this journey with diabetes.  Some of these I'm more upset about than others.  I can deal without the white bread.  Wheat bread tastes better and I'm loving the Arnold Sandwich Thins that are lower in carbs.  However I *love* pizza, doughnuts, and pancakes.  Luckily we don't have any of those very often.  I'm trying to work out in my mind how I can still have those "forbidden" items since I don't want to deprive my family.  If we have pizza, I might have a small piece and then fill up on a nice dinner salad. 

I've been told by others that dealing with diabetes is a constant learning experience that will always involve fine-tuning.  Thankfully I have some great company for the journey!
