Here's an example of my menu:
Breakfast: 1/2 C oatmeal, 1 slice Ezekial bread, 2 eggs, 6 oz kefir, butter.
Lunch: 2 slices bread, 3 oz fish (salmon or sardines), avocado, lettuce, onion, apple.
Dinner: 3 oz meat, 1/2 cup sweet potato, 1 small white potato, 1 cup cooke spinach, salad, dressing, butter, 12 cherries.
Snacks: balance 1 carb serving with 1 protein serving.
This is what works for me. Did they give you a book as to what serving size equals 15 g carbs? Rice is 1/3c, but acorn squash is 1 C! If you can find a diabetic exchange book, it makes it a lot easier.
I have to be honest - it took about a week before I was really comfortable figuring out the diet, and I have a written plan!
