I made some tuna salad, and it’s AWESOME. You know what the secret to great tuna salad is? It’s not celery — that’s too obvious. It’s a shitload of fresh ground pepper. Grind until your wrist hurts! That sounds dirty.
So about this bread … ugh. This bread isn’t advertised as “whole grain” or whatever, so I guess my terrible results from this tuna salad on wheat experiment shouldn’t be a total shock.
I suppose the lesson here is: Not all wheat breads are automatically diabetes-friendly! Some are very unfriendly. Like this one.
Blood sugar reading before eating: 115
This reading of 115 was after work, so I hadn’t eaten in several hours.
Blood sugar reading after eating: 227
This reading was about an hour after I finished my sandwich.
And that was ALL I ate! Just the sandwich. Wheat bread, yellow mustard on one slice, mayo on the other, a thick bed of lettuce (which I require on most sandwiches), and a few thin tomato slices on top of the tuna. I didn’t even drink any soy milk, which I really like with a sandwich like this.
FYI, these results are very similar to what I got from eating a 6-inch Subway tuna on wheat.
I’ll have to eat the rest of this bread one slice at a time. Groan.
