Good morning, Judy. I haven't exactly been keeping the rainbow score, but I'm trying to keep my nutrition at a high level.

Breakfast: 1/2 C. old fashioned oatmeal, blueberries, walnuts, ff milk and coffee
Lunch and dinner not planned yet. Have to do some things for my sister and do some grocery shopping for me later. There will be dark green veggies and a protein as well. Am thinking a potato sounds good as well.

Happy Friday, boardies!!

I have been re-reading "Why We Get Fat" by Gary Taubes. It has made me realize that my carb intake has been inching up. So I will be very gradually cutting that down and monitoring my blood sugar closely.

bacon
apple RED
walnuts
crab cake
sugar snap peas GREEN

32 grams of carbs already. Or 2 diabetic servings.
Smoochies,

Blood glucose 88 Great!
1/2 apple
1 oz. of walnuts

I pop a walnut half in my mouth and then take a bite of apple. It's kind of like apple cobbler. Yummy!

Sorry I missed tallying my foods and colors Friday. My son came home for fall break and I've been even busier, but it's a very fun busy! Love reconnecting with him. Shopping and cooking again tomorrow! I've had red apple, yellow banana, red cherries, green peas, red strawberries, and too many carbs in processed grains and too few proteins and my sleep has been not quite enough. Need to increase vegetables of every color and keep up with my exercising. Gained, lost same 2 pounds. Listening to mike Shannon on kmox narrate the cardinals playing game 1 against the dodgers, extra innings after midnight. Come on cards! Go...
