The Right things to eat at Easter Dinner

The table was spread with food as our family sat down to share an incredible dinner which my wife prepared for Easter Dinner and I feasted and filled my belly with these delicious treats. Yes, I went overboard and ate until I was fast the point of being full. All I kept thinking was that I was going to pay for this in the morning when I took my glucose reading. But much to my surprise my reading this morning was the lowest it had been for some time. How was this possible?

It turns out that all of the food I ate was Whole 30 approved. Yea, all of the foods I love to eat I ate and it was OK. Sharon made a standing rib roast in which I certainly indulged and although everyone else ate a baked potato I found that a sweet potato for me was perfect. Of course it’s hard to have prime rib without being complimented with red cabbage and horse radish so I made sure my plate was full of both. A side dish of carrots, onions and apple’s worked well with my appetite and the Kale salad was just the right combination of raw vegetables to increase the fiber input. We put out chips and salsa, guacamole and hummus before dinner but I found that by cutting up some carrots and celery I could enjoy all three dips without messing up the diet.

I ate and ate and ate again. After dinner I felt full but not the typical type of full you normally have after a large holiday dinner. No, I was full but not wanting to crash on the couch after dinner. It was perfect and with my blood sugar down to 90 mg/dl this morning I am quickly learning that by simply eating the right foods holiday dinners can be enjoyable.
