Daily Struggles...

Yes, it seems I'm destined to have "daily struggles" with my type 2 diabetes, and while I know I'm not in this boat alone, I still find it very difficult, and some days, almost unbearable, but I keep on keeping on. 

One complication I have is nausea, whenever my sugars get high, I have rounds of nausea, and it's so frustrating.  It seems that no matter what I do, my sugars just want to stay high.  Pills no longer work for me, and I'm currently taking almost 100 units of insulin a day just to keep them in a normal range.  :-(

Breadless Philly Cheese Steak

Breadless Philly Cheese Steak

(recipe found on Facebook)
Breadless Philly Cheese Steak
  • 2 medium green peppers
  • 1/2 lb. steak
  • 1/2 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 TBL butter
  • dash of hot sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 slices provolone cheese, halved
  1. Cut the tops off of the green peppers, but not the bottoms. Slice the peppers in half, lengthwise. Wash and pull out all the seeds. Pat them dry and set aside.
  2. Very, very thinly slice the steak against the grain, as thin as you can get it.
  3. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steak and salt and pepper and stir every few minutes, letting the steak get brown. When it's almost cooked all the way, add the onion and mushrooms. Cook until the onions are soft and transparent.
  4. Spoon 1/4 of the filling onto one green pepper half. Top with two half slices of provolone and then put on another 1/4 of the filling. Top with the other green pepper half. Repeat with the other pepper.
