The medicine I was given yesterday really has helped me feel better. Plus the 11 hours of sleep I got last night has really helped me. I’m still not at 100% but I’m at least at 70%. Much better than I was feeling 3 days ago.
My father-in-law had diabetes and blood pressure issues. For a few years at Christmas time, I would buy him treats he could enjoy. These treats contained low sugar and low sodium. He also couldn’t swallow almonds all that well and I would buy him lots of almonds. He kindly told me not to any more. Plus he hated coconut. So what did I get him? I would go to Trader’s Joe and get him various nuts but not almonds with no salt, pumpkin butter, and Larabars.
I thought Larabars looked interesting but did not try them for the longest time because I didn’t know what the dates would taste like. I know, I know I’m such a chicken. Then when I did I was hooked. They are so good.
This Christmas I had planned to make him some homemade ones. In fact, I bought the dates the Friday before his death. It took a month or so after his death to make the homemade ones for myself. I ended up making coconut cream ones which I know he would have hated.
Let me tell you, they are delicious!!!!! I would take one of those and a cheese stick and would be set for breakfast. Yummo!
(Sorry I don’t have a picture of one. I forgot to take one but will post one as soon as I make another batch.)
