Jacob and I don’t keep a lot of sweet stuff around the house because, well, there’s the whole diabetes thing and because he’s the most supportive husband ever. By not even keeping cookies and ice cream and things like that in the house, I’m never tempted to indulge just because it’s there. Of course, I do indulge in these foods on occasion, but it’s easier to manage things when they’re not in the cupboard staring me in the face.
Because of this, I generally treat a low I have in the house with A.) a GU pack or B.) Betty Crocker cake frosting that week keep in the fridge. The frosting is cheap, tastes reasonably good and lasts a long time. Neither of those methods taste all that awesome, but they get the job done.
So when we just so happen to have something delicious laying around the house, I kind of get a little excited about having a low blood sugar. Case in point: these frosted Circus Animal cookies I forgot to pack when I was out of town for the party last weekend. I had meant to tuck them in my carry on to have as a snack for all the girls in our hotel room, but I spaced it and left them behind.
Which made the low I had today at 2pm pretty rad. It’s these little moments with diabetes that we have to appreciate right? The serendipitous feeling of having a good low fix around when you need it.
