No sugar challenge, Day 4 of 5: Emergency — sugar low!
ALERT — Low blood sugar, low blood sugar, low blood sugar — ALERT
My brain was telling me that last night. After a long meeting, I had forgotten to eat dinner. My mind was on a mission to seek the nearest food source. Because I was on the no sugar challenge, my mind focused on other types of foods. I quickly consumed an apple, cheese, guacamole and crackers, and chili — not the most ideal combination. I don’t want to tell you the quantities I ate.
When I met with my fellow challengers at the support call today, I revealed my hypoglycemic incident. By voicing my incident brought a reminder — planning ahead to avoid low sugar levels. I suspect that I should be extra vigilant about low sugar since I was already on a no-sugar diet.
Anyway, onto my next recipe that I tried. Overnight keto chia pudding
Quite tasty. Since I didn’t have milk, I used water and added a few splashes of cream.
After trying it, it did need some sweetness. So I added some Truvia – a combination of sugar and stevia. A small amount went a long way.
I even added a drop of lemon oil form DoTerra. That made it bright tasting.
I recommend this dessert or even as a breakfast item. Glad that Dr. Lisa Weeks recommended this recipe.
I can’t believe it’s been four days since my wife and I started this challenge. We have done well so far except for last night. But hey, this is a part of life and I live, learn and work to experience everything.
