A favorite breakfast of mine is turkey sausage links, and waffles.

You can use any brand you like, but just add up the protein grams and make them equal to the carb grams in the waffles.

I use 3 turkey sausage links, and 2 Van's Maple Oat Fusion waffles.
Sugar free syrup, of course!

All for about 325 calories, and balanced protein and carb! Go ahead, top it with a little whipped cream!

By now you may have discovered how much better you feel when you get half of your protein from whey protein. It is a marvelous way to alkalinize your body and reduce the glycemic index of anything you eat. And, if you have equal grams protein and carbs each time you eat, you will find that method balances blood sugar all on its own.

But for those of you that are wondering if you are ready to take the plunge to control blood sugar with food, I am here to answer the questions you may have. Just email me.

It seems so strange to me that the whole blood sugar issue has gotten so far away from using common sense. Smaller meals mean less strain on the pancreas, so "just in time food" is the way to go. You can learn as you go, too, so don't hesitate to begin to learn to hit your target numbers. You have a whole new life coming where you will feel much better and manage your blood sugar the best way possible: with food, exercise, and supplements. Of course, work with your doctor to confirm with the A1C.
