At the Movies

Before diabetes I’d eat candy or ice cream at the movies. After diabetes entered my life I’d sneak low carb food into the theatre. This weekend I wanted to figure out a way to eat during the movie without resorting to bringing in outside food.

I decided to go with the lowest carb thing on the menu — the 100% beef hot dog. I had them take it out of the wrapper and put it in an open box and pour “nacho” cheese on it (I don’t want to know what was in the cheese! Maybe another day I’ll Goggle the ingredients!). I added green peppers from the relish bar, then I cut the hot dog into bite size pieces and ate them off the bun, which I used as a plate.

Two hours later when I checked my blood sugar I was pleased to see that it was 95.

Of course the best way to handle this would have been to eat a healthy before going to the movies. ┬áSometimes it works out that way, sometimes it doesn’t. I like having a Plan B.
