Little history about me. I got pancreatitis a few years back and was hospitalized. It was a life changing event. Now I ave to be careful about what I eat. I’m a diabetic, but it’s manageable by diet. I know what to eat and what not to eat, I just have a hard time following my own advice.
Yesterday I went to the grocery store and tried to get some healthier options. One of the items I picked up was chicken salad from the deli.
This morning I checked my sugar because I didn’t feel right. I know I HAVEN’T been eating right. Low and behold my sugar was at 220 (it should be at 130 when you wake up). So I brought my chicken salad to eat plain, some veggies (broccoli, celery and carrots) and a co-worker gave me some fresh pineapple. I started eating my chicken salad and it tasted super sweet. NOW I check the label…my response to what I saw…who the hell puts high fructos corn syrup in chicken salad? The food industry is LITERALLY trying to kill us. Then I wanted to kick myself for not checking the label prior to purchase.
Here’s a recipe for some YUMMY and HEALTHY chicken salad.
