I haven't been doing very good diet wise. Recovering from back surgery has made my motivation to eat right and check my sugar really low... I am cooking a meal right now that is correct for how the center has taught me to eat. Pork roast with vegetables. Carrots and potatoes for carbs and onions and celery for veggies. Then the pork for protein. Gonna check sugar before I eat. I need to check it. I've been really bad about checking it.

I hope everyone is well today. 😊

My wife had an eye appt today, and her vision is much better. She was very fearful of receiving an eye injection, but they did not suggest this. She's to have a dye test done in 2months, and in the meantime double check the dye is safe for her. (which it should be)

@ Gus - i am glad you are finding 7 cups to be a good community for you. 😊

I would be very fearful about an eye injection, too.

I'm planning to make soup today, but I've realized the potassium content will be really high for my wife. She'll only be able to have some if all her other foods today are very low in potassium. I'm frustrated i miscalculated the ingredients.
I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!
