Okay girls.

First of all, I love every single one of you, and I'm going to ask to get my blood sugar tested next Monday.

Secondly, I have spent ALL afternoon/evening trying to develop a sample meal plan, and of course I am NINE fats short. Everything else is easy except those fats. I need ideas!


  1. So proud of you for doing this, Laur. Sorry I've missed commenting on your previous posts, but i AM reading---just getting into my school work a bit more, like you i'm sure :) Anyyyways, fats?! Girl. Nuts, PB, avocado or guacamole, salad dressings--evoo, granolas, hummus, larabars, soy ice cream? just some ideas :)

  2. Hey lovebug! I'm so happy you're going to get tested - it's really not that bad having it. If you have any questions you know where to find me :)

    Hm extra fats - nut butters, avocados, larabara, olive oil, plain nuts/seeds...hope that helps?

  3. Hey I am a few ideas for you. Don't you find it a lot easier, and less stressful when you are counting categories of food rather than just calories? BTW my EDU called them satieties so it wouldn't sound so scary :)

    Avocados, hummus, tofu, almonds, almond butter, peanut butter, sunflower seeds, coconut, oils, tempeh, dressing, different yogurts like FAGE 2%, soymilk, oh! edamame beans (those are great you get 2 servings of protein and one satiety in one shot)! That's all I can think of right now. Hope this helps, and stay strong!

  4. aw i'm glad your getting tested dollface! good for you!

    fats fats fats, lets see... how about i just say ditto to what amy and K said because i can't think of anything else! haha.. sorry!! :(

  5. ditto to those fats

    +butter on veggies or whatever, mayo, cream cheese, bologna, dressings, eggs ( protein and fat), sour cream, Whole milk.
    hmmmmm I don't knowwwwww

  6. Nuts? I love nuts. :)
    I got nuts with nuts.

  7. hi girlie,
    so glad your gonna get tested and hopefully get th the root of the problem!
    hmm fats..nuts, nut butters, oily fish like salmon or fresh tuna? im struggling with fitting in more fats too so any great adivce you get let me know :)
    have a great night girlie
    love u

  8. Hang in there Laura! I'm a big nut fan!

  9. Be careful not to cut yourself short though if you do nuts, You will need a FULL handful to get in 1 or 2 fats!

  10. fats--
    2 tbsp pb or other nut butter
    1.5 tbsp cream cheese
    1 tsp butter
    2 tbsp mayo
    1-2 tbsp regular dressing (no light shit)

  11. Perhaps you should ask for a test for hypoglycemia? Your symptoms sound exactly the same as what I get quite often and I'm getting tested soon.
    Hope you feel better soon hun :( xxx

  12. i love you to sweetie :)

    yes! i am so glad you made an appointment! it will be very reassuring to know whats really going on and how to fix this.

    as for fats! i use to fear fats (so so much) but once i got into it i found fats to be easier than protein! they are really vital for your organs and skin so i call them ''healthy fats'' instead.

    nut butters - use twice as much!
    hummus - veggies or sandwich
    sour cream - tacos, baked potato (with cheese!)
    cream cheese - bagel, toast, muffin, etc
    butter or soy margarine (earth balance is a must for me!) on a grilled sandwich
    olive oil - use to cook in! or drizzle over steamed/roasted veggies
    granola (a grain + a fat!) on full fat yogurt
    avocado or guacamole on a sandwich/wrap
    mayonnaise on a sandwich/wrap/chickpea salad
    salad dressing on a salad or with veggies (if you you light then you would have to eat twice as much for 1 fat)
    real whipped cream on your dessert

    i know these are repetitive (im going off of my nutrition booklet!)

    enjoy your friday! <3
