Diabetes blood sugar before and after: Mexican food (chicken burrito bowl and a chicken taco on a flour tortilla)

diabetes blood sugar test before and after eating mexican food burrito bowl chicken taco on flour tortilla

Blood sugar reading before eating: 95

This reading of 95 was after riding my bike home from work (about 1 mile). My last meal had been lunch (spicy Korean tofu soup) about 5 1/2 hours before.

Blood sugar reading after eating: 124

This reading was about an hour after eating my burrito bowl and taco. During that hour I took my dog Terry out for a walk.

Last night, I was muy disappointed when I saw how much my blood sugar increased (96 β†’ 204) after eating three chicken tacos on corn tortillas.

Mexican food is something I kind of need in order to be happy. So today I decided to switch up my order and go from the six corn tortillas I had last night (2 per taco) to just one taco-sized flour tortilla today.

My little plan appears to have worked! 95 β†’ 124 is basically nothing. And both my burrito bowl and taco were “fully loaded” with sour cream, guacamole, cheese, jalapenos, and a healthy dose of Tapatio hot sauce that I added myself.

Believe me, I will definitely be testing this again. And I’ll probably even see what happens when I eat a burrito, big flour tortilla and all.
