"Calculating the Shake"
Arrived at Pappas Billiards to pick up a ticket for the "100 Mile Feast" prepared by 'The Movable Feast' for November 21 at the Camp Kawartha/Trent Environment Centre. Could not resist stopping for lunch of a delicious cheeze-burger and vanilla milk-shake! As a Type I Diabetic, I had to calculate the grams of carbohydrates and then inject a sufficient amount of insulin before eating, to ensure it was in my bloodstream by the time food was absorbed. I never before thought so systematically about my favorite drink. How lucky to have a society where insulin is available. What is the cost? See fellow-blogger posts!
