I was cleaning today and found something I had lost for a while. I found my Deal-A-Meal cards! Richard Simmons created these card that are basically the diabetic diet on cards. The premise is that you move the cards over as you eat through the day. It is a physical reminder of what you have eaten and how it affects you. I think it is a great plan. I think I am going to use them again. It might help me get into a different mind-set for eating.
These cards are one reason I post my recipes with food exchanges. They are the same as the cards. I use Master Cook to calculate recipe calories and exchanges. It’s not that expensive and is really a great tool.
