My wife was just away for the weekend, so I cooked for myself. I cooked meetballs and pasta and, because of the number of meatballs in the packet, the concoction lasted both the days my wife was away. Funny, on both days, my sugar was up at 16, which is far higher than I'd like. Needless to say, I was quite careful with what I ate, and I never normally notice a particular peak with a portion of pasta, so possibly the jar of ragu also had sugar in it?
Anyway, last night I just had chicken kievs (I love garlic!), with nothing else, and this morning my sugar was back down at 12. Provided I don't go crazy today, it'll be single figures tomorrow. It's funny how it seems to take 48 hours for everything to settle back down after a spike.
