When I returned from a hike in the mountains yesterday, I was tired, cold, and wet and had food on my mind. I wanted pasta as a variation to my recent diet of salad for lunch and beans (as in chili) for dinner.
The information in this early article is updated in my article at “Is Dreamfields Pasta Good for People with Diabetes?“
The food choices on my diet are easy. What I eat must taste great and provide great nutrition. Great taste is subjective and certainly varies from person to person. But great nutrition is objective.
All of us are still learning about nutrition. But we do know the foods that are good for us and those that we should avoid.
How much we eat matters. It determines our size, which in turn is the most important part of controlling our diabetes.
But what determines how much we eat? It can’t be just because we are hungry, since almost everyone overeats sometimes. We get cues from our environment.
