Had Italian Last Night

A myT1Dteam Member asked a question πŸ’­

Shared appetizers - fried calamari, spinach/artichoke dip, mozzarella & insalata caprese
Entree Zuppa Di Pesce with
Shrimp, clams, scungilli, mussels & scallops in a fresh tomato sauce with a small amount of angel hair pasta which I did not eat the pasta

This morning my blood sugar is all over the place and high

So what should I have not eaten?

It is not only what you eat but how much you eat. Protein digests more slowly, but it still digests. Tomatoes are easily converted into sugars. And you do not know how the dip was prepared. I am type 1, and ask questions all the time. But then I can also inject more or less R to compensate for variations in a meal.
