Blood sugar reading before eating: 109
This reading of 109 was maybe 90 minutes after eating some salad. I hadn’t eaten anything other than that.
Blood sugar reading after eating: 176
This reading was about an hour after I finished my two chicken tacos.
A couple of things … I followed mostly the same recipe that I wrote out a few days ago, except I poured in a lot of lime juice. Sometimes I like to do that cuz I’m crazzaaay.
Also, these tacos were bigger than the ground pork tacos that I made earlier this week. The ground pork tacos were about 110g, but these chicken tacos were closer to 150g.
Still, I can live with 109 → 176! It’s an increase of 67. Not the end of the world.
And then about an hour later, I got hungry again. One more taco, this time weighing in at about 125g.
Blood sugar reading before eating: 150
Still coming down from the 176 after my previous two tacos.
Blood sugar reading after eating: 126
Wait, what? I’d like to believe that tacos make the blood sugar go down, but I don’t think that’s how it works. So I did a second test with a different glucose monitor.
The 126 came from a CareSens N. I retested with a Braun Omnitest 3 (I don’t think this brand is sold in the U.S.) and it came up with 131.
Both tests were an hour after the taco. So what happened? I dunno!!!! The body does weird things. Maybe in the past couple of hours my body decided to stop being diabetic. Haha. Right.
