What to eat when the right food isn't available (Hurricane Irma)?
I have eaten wrong foods and spiked my blood with one meal on some occasions, but when there is a disaster and electricity is out, the only food that keeps is canned. Several days of peanut butter, canned meat, chips, crackers, cheese, and those types of things that are not on the list of the Diabetes Diet are all that is edible.
We’ve had to eat “wrong” for two days and my blood is up, up. If I don’t eat, it spikes, and if I eat the wrong foods it spikes. A disaster causes problems for diabetics and others who are supposed to avoid canned foods. No way to get to a grocery; no electricity, just all the wrong things.
