Yesterday was my birthday, most celebrate with cake and diabetics can too. As long as you are cool with sliver of cake. No one eats a sliver of anything that is why you cannot buy a utensil that measures a sliver. I did indulge a bit though, I ate a sugar fee cupcake with dinner. It still had 29 carbohydrates so I counted as part of my meal.
It was fantastic though I tried to make it last but in the interest of full disclosure I ate it in about 2 seconds. I ate it so fast I only remember that it tasted good but I do not remember actually eating it if that makes sense.
I was forlorn, I did not get to enjoy it really. That is fine though, I still have 3 cupcakes left or if I mush them together I have a giant carb filled meal of a regular slice of cake. I am kidding of course, well maybe not, I do not know, I mean lunch is overrated right? I could substitute my healthy lunch for an unhealthy dose of cake happiness. Just one meal… it is tempting but the period between lunch and dinner is long I would be hungry by 2.
I know to a non-diabetic to complain of lack of cake is not a big deal but to us it is. If I had one chance to cheat I would eat a giant red velvet cake. No fork needed I would just dive in and only come up for air. My face would be covered in dye from the cake and frosting for days. I would be a mad man possessed. Unstoppable. I would not share not with children or friends I would enjoy every last bit of cake and probably lick the dish it was delivered on. Sorry I just got lost in fantasy okay back to my lettuce. Chomp chomp chomp.
