stressing


karen told me that if you're prone to hypoglycemia due to a lack of protein at breakfast that you're more likely to develop type II diabetes as an older adult. i might be overcompensating with all of this protein im eating now. that omelet was SO good. black beans, red onion, corn, cheddar chez, salsa.

today i thank God for crock pots, rain barrels, my marriage, and mexican coke. all of these things have saved me time, money, or sanity on stressful days. oh and cloud watching, a favorite past time of augustine's

mexican coke?

jenny mae. said...

mexican coke doesnt have high fructose corn syrup. instead it has cane sugar

dude! mexican coke will turn you diabetic quicker than hypoglycemia will! even though it is cane sugar it is 3 TIMES the amount of sugar we would use! (as told to me by many mexicans.)

well even with Rachael's info, i will have to find this mexican coke and try some, after the baby's born. i am, sadly, addicted to coca-cola.

Mexican soda might have more sugar, but anything is better than the synthetic sugar they pump into diet drinks. At least your body knows what to do with sugar and it doesn't turn into a key ingredient in formaldehyde like the fake stuff does in your intestines.

I love Mexican soda, Jenny! (I get lots of it down here in Texas, and also my husband is half Mexican so we're always surrounded by Mexican goodies.)

Last but not least, cloud watching is only the best thing ever.

Where do you purchase mexican soda???

I LOVE mexican coke--practically live off the stuff. and since I live part-time in Mexico, I'm spoiled like that. :)
And its got almost the same calorie content as American coke, so don't buy the idea that it has more so much more sugar than the other (you have to judge both by an 8 oz serving, not by per bottle). Corn or cane, a calorie is a calorie. ;)

Mexican Coke tastes a lot sweeter than American Coke. It kind of has more of a Pepsi taste. But no HFCS is good.

Try European Coke. It is made of raw sugar and is less sweet than Mexican Coke. No idea where to get it, tho.

Oh, that was me. I guess my husband was logged in.
