    Anyone got any good snacks that require no injections (between meals).

    To give you a hint I love pork pies, so suggestions of sliced green Peppers are not going to cut it! Haha.

    What's your insulin to carb ratio? What's the issue with doing a bolus for a snack?

    Insulin stacking at the moment as trying to sort out my long acting (tresiba from lantus recently).

    Carb ratio varies through the day 1 unit for 7 in the morning (before tresiba, dawn phenomenon or foot on the floor!) but that's changing. Afternoon is 1 for 10.

    Thanks

    Love cheese.... Especially with wine! Haha. However I do eat too much of it. Beef Jerky sounds good. Is there no sugar in the process?

    Jerky is usually salt and spices. It very much depends on the recipe.
