    I wore my "Wheat Is Murder" shirt on our bike ride down to see the fireworks and had someone ask me what it meant.
    I explained that I was not eating grains, etc.
    "What do you eat then?" he asked in a voice that suggested my choices were nil after that.
    The cool thing about it is that my BF started asking me questions afterward and may be looking into the benefits for himself.

    "Juvenile diabetes" is another term for type 1, which is inborn; not really that ironic.

    I'd say there's still an ironic element when it comes to selling sugary stuff to benefit diabetes.

    Meanwhile, here's a conversation with my diabetic FIL:
    FIL: Yeah, I'm drinking okra juice, it's supposed to help my blood sugar levels.
    Me: Huh, never heard of that one...
    FIL: And I'm also drinking this apple/prune juice combo that is supposed to help my digestion. And my sister-in-law suggested I drink pineapple juice to reduce my pot belly.
    Me: So basically you're drinking sugary juice to lose weight? And then drinking okra juice as an antidote to the blood sugar spike from the other juice?
    FIL: Yeah, pretty much.
    Me: ...

    On Sunday I was sitting in the back of Primary (children's sunday school) with another gal and we were talking about what we were having for dinner. She understands and respects what I choose to eat but she was totally making me giggle cuz she told me she felt like she had to justify her crummy diet to me.
    Her: "We're having vegetables tonight."
    Me: "That's great, honey, I'm so glad!"
    Her: "They're from a can."
    Me: LOL

    I didn't have time to make dinner before going to babysit four year-old twins, so I just hit the grocery store's salad bar.
    My salad: a few baby lettuce leaves, strawberry slices, slivered almonds, bacon, lots of chicken, a generous amount of cottage cheese, and cucumbers. It was a small salad bar so there wasn't much variety, but it was a good meal.

    At dinner time, the kids eyed my salad, and couldn't stop giggling, teasing me for being on a diet.
    How cute. I guess eating real food means you're on a diet. What a nice impression those parents are giving their children /sarcasm

    Double funny: the parents said that the kids could only eat extra vegetables if they finish their boxed mac & cheese.
    The kids didn't want to eat the mac & cheese, but they kept asking for more vegetables.
    Poor things :-(

    So? Does that mean they can have lots of sugar? Sure, why not; then they can kill themselves faster with a big insulin shot. Hurray!
    If anything, they should be more careful.

    Our town has a lunch program for low-income kids. Their healthy lunch is deep fried tater tots, deep fried chicken patty on a white bun, canned pears, and low fat milk. Apparently this is healthy according to USDA guidelines. *headdesk*
