- I'm a glass-half-full type of girl. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, grave's disease and celiac disease in 2010 and life-altering allergies in 2013. I believe having a positive attitude is the only way to live with dis-ease. I also believe that life doesn't have to be PERFECT for it to be WONDERFUL. Dis-ease is expensive, so I live a frugal yet healthy lifestyle. This is just my blog; my day-to-day story.

Do you DRINK that????
Nope, it's not stomach bile. It's my breakfast. It's my green juice that I make regularly in my juicer. It consists of 3 broccoli stalks, 3 celery, 3 cucumbers, 3 leaves of romaine or kale, sprouts, and either a couple baby carrots or a 1/2 apple. It's gluten free, tastes pretty good and gives me more energy than any cup of coffee ever could (well, I don't drink caffeine, so that could be why). Trying to figure out how to bolus for it is, well, another story. That's a whole lotta veggies... in juice form (read: instant blood sugar affecter). But I could never eat that many veggies in one day, so it's kind of nice to drink it down in a matter of seconds.
