Ok I want Riley to eat a well balance diet and get enough carbs daily for brain development. However with this stupid thing called puberty hitting her full force and her being what seems somewhat insulin resistant some foods are just horrible and others are not.Lower carb foods seem to be ok even if I stack them but higher carb foods are just no good.
Bad carb stuff
mini corn dogs
ugh so much more it makes her spike from 150 to 300 easy with what should be plenty of insulin to cover it.
good carb stuff
But she is a 9 yo girl and well cant eat just fruit and veggies plus we try and eat the same as her and I cant afford fresh fruit and veggies for every dang meal. She wont eat other fillers like most meats ect.
I know little about foods but wanted to know what other carb foods might she not spike from? Complex partial or what have ya I dont know what ones do what and what foods fall into each category. I feel lame but before she was doing ok and now I need to know more because she isnt. I tried searching myself but I dont know enough about it to really to do it on my own.
