Blood sugar reading before eating: 94
This reading of 94 was a little over an hour after eating a banana at work.
Blood sugar reading after eating: 118
This reading was about an hour after eating my soup.
First … wow.
94 → 118 ain’t sh*t! I think it’s reasonable to conclude that my “soybean paste soup” is safe to eat.
And second, don’t be grossed out by the name of this soup. The name sounds way more appetizing in Korean, I assure you. As the name, which I copied from Wikipedia, suggests, it’s made from a Korean soybean paste called “dwen-jahng” (된장).
This soup is usually made with squash, chunks of tofu, bits of potato, some stringy mushrooms, and tiny little clams. It’s really good.
In a Korean restaurant, you would order “dwen-jahng jee-gay.” It’s usually kind of salty, but it’s delicious.
