they weren't lyin'~

when they said breakfast is the most important meal of the day. 
i'm all about the oatmeal in the morning with a bit of agave syrup and some walnuts.  i'm telling you, oatmeal and chromium ( i think) are what have been helping me out. all day, i'm balanced and my BG's are in control.  not just from the oatmeal, but just because of general increases in fiber!
for all of you non-type 1's (even 2's!) you should seriously take heed to what type 1's figure out about diet and health, haha. we're a great control group. it's hysterical to me when people say, "oh yaaaaaa, you have to watch your diet really well, right?"  it's like, "hey! i don't eat a special diet!  i eat the diet we should all be eating. 
because if i don't, i get to see the immediate consequences you only see later on."
 i read some journal article recently where this doctor said in response to someone's question of "what do you think is the most important thing a person can do to stay healthy?"
her response:  keep the blood sugar in balance.
she said this because when the body's blood glucose levels are in control in any person; (meaning, the body is not swinging as it tries to maintain balance) a person will live a  longer, happier, healthier life because all of the systems in turn, can remain in balance. 
especially the cardiovascular, the system that is number one for getting clogged and fattened and slow and sad in the U.S.
more red wine! 
more olive oil!
