I'm out of salad stuff (lettuce, spinach, the 'greens') - it's too early to have them from the garden and it's nearly impossible to 'stock' them when you can find them at the grocery store (haven't been to a store since last weekend, but when we were there, the salad aisle was pretty sad). Even DH was struck yesterday - "we're out of lettuce " - yeah, I know, that's why dinner featured broccoli so prominently.
I have some broccoli, frozen, but not enough to get through this thing and, while I can eat a salad every day of the known world, my digestive tract will not allow broccoli with the same repetition.
You know what stores well? Carbs. Rice, in particular. Beans, which I can only eat in small qtys. So right now I have to reeeeally watch what's going on. But I've found myself 'stress' eating and eating just because the people in the house are eating. But I have to admit DH is right, that freaky sweet potato and the butternut squash DID contribute to one of the best curries I've ever made.
DH's desk (3 monitors, a bunch of junk I don't understand, office chair... it's huge) is now in my office and has blocked my treadmill and I'm allergic to the outdoors (pollen season big time here). And it's going to be 90 today, pollen and heat are asthma triggers for me.
I don't go back to the Doc 'til the end of April. Not sure how things will look. I guess I'll just wander back and forth across the house between phone calls to try to get some movement going.
I'm going to have to get him to move that contraption he works with and put the treadmill... somewhere. ANYwhere, where I can access it. Maybe even our room. I'm not sure it'll fit through the door, though, the office has double doors, it was easy to get in here.
I understand what seems to be a good idea for pantry staples and long term storage are all items loaded with carbs. That is my problem right now too. I am eating more carbs than I should using what I have on hand and my blood sugar has been creeping up. When you are gluten intolerant and diabetic it is really hard to find the right balance. I understand stress eating too. I an going to try to get back more in to the ketogenic foods although since abandoning my leaky gut diet my gastritis is rearing its ugly head again. I had to discontinue the leaky gut diet due to it was too difficult to find the various things that I need.
Good luck with your diabetes and being gluten intolerant they are not compatible and with you being a vegetarian too I cannot imagine the struggle you are dealing with especially during this very difficult time.
