This omelet was pretty massive. That’s why it’s kind of burnt on the outside. It was almost impossible to flip and needed some extra stove time.
Four eggs alone doesn’t really seem like “a lot” of food … they’re just eggs! But when you toss in some onion, bell pepper, mushroom, spinach, jalapenos, and a bunch of shredded mozzarella cheese, you’ve got a big ass omelet.
Blood sugar reading before eating: 123
This reading of 123 was a couple hours after work, so I hadn’t eaten in several hours.
Blood sugar reading after eating: 133
This reading was about 1 hr 20 min after I finished the omelet.
I usually check blood sugar again an hour after eating, but in this case it was about 20 minutes past that. Somehow I don’t think that should make a huge difference.
Even if my blood sugar had peaked and then started coming down, I doubt it was very high to begin with. I mean, look at that! 10 point difference from before to after.
Four eggs isn’t great for the cholesterol, but I like to live on the edge. I’m completely insane. A total wildman.
OH! And guess what? I was scrolling through some of the old blood sugar log entries on my phone and it turns out this isn’t the first time I’ve tested the four egg omelet. I did it several months ago, and the results were very similar.
Blood sugar reading before eating: 107
This reading of 107 was a couple hours after work, so I hadn’t eaten in several hours.
Blood sugar reading after eating: 118
This reading was about an hour after I finished the omelet.
From the looks of it, I think this omelet was basically just eggs, cheese, and jalapenos (the Mexican kind, which explains the carrots).
So now we have TWO different omelet tests, four eggs each, and the results are nearly identical. Sweet! Omelets will remain on the menu.
