That was a lot of carbs last night for my diabetes diet. The avocado alone was 12 grams of carbs. The belle peppers probably added another 10 and the chia seeds another 5. Wow, 25 grams of carbs in the evening. Almost forgot to add the 5 or so carbs from the beer for a total of 30 grams of carbs for yesterday evening and dinner.
I think that eating less protein and adding more fat is really helping. The fat from the avocado, coconut milk, and oil probably kept the 30 grams of carbs from raising my blood sugar over night. I normally try to keep my carbs below 30 grams for the day and eat most of them well before dinner to keep my blood sugar low. I will continue to modify my diabetes diet and see what happens.
