#GlucernaHungerSmart Shakes- Keeping Healthy on the Fly.

Babushka has been compensated by Glucerna for this post; however, BB is  sharing her own thoughts. All opinions are Babushka’s. Talk with your health care provider about a diabetes management plan that’s right for you. #GlucernaHungerSmart #CollectiveBias





HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!!!

My husband,Sweetie, is pre-diabetic so he watches his diet very carefully. That can be a little tricky to do, especially since he's the type who loves to spend hours outdoors. In the Florida calor, spending hours outside is  sooo not Babushka, so he’s sent off alone with meals and snacks.  The lunches BB packs for him have to be filling, satisfying, and taste good, because he’s already slim and Babushka’s got a reputation to uphold.

BB drives over to our local Walmart and buys what are sure things in both the taste and health requirements. We've been reading up on diabetes and the changes one needs to do, but at the same time we also know that if it doesn't have that zing, then it's a zero. Thankfully we found out the following about Glucerna-

Glucerna® Hunger Smart™ Shakes are specially designed for people with diabetes,used under medical supervision. Con 66% less sugars than leading weight loss shakes, they also have 50% more protein, making them a very smart choice to help manage hambre. And the especial,CarbSteady, which allows carbs to be released slowly over time and prevents blood sugar spikes is theirs too.

Glucerna® Hunger Smart™ Shakes come in Chocolate &Vanilla y el chocolate es BUENISIMO!!! Quee?? You thought BB bought that whole 6 pack just for Sweetie and his fishing trip?  

JU SO FONII!!!

They also have 25 vitaminas and minerals as well as being un excelente source of fiber. Of course this is a good thing, and combined with the added protein it helps manage hunger. A good thing when you're busy, inside or outdoors.

Ahora eso si, there are rules for packing a good lunch and a couple of trucos Babushka has learned along el camino.

1. Know what they like and give it to them. While they're out and about is not a time to experiment.
2. Make sure it'll keep for hours.  If it needs to be cool,  have some frozen bottle waters and/or icepacks ready. BB's preference are the water bottles, they can always drink the melted agua.
3. If it can get squashed,mushed, crushed, put it in a bag by itself- 'cause who needs that extra yuck ?

In Sweetie's case, he prefers to eat things he can eat with one hand;the other is for his fishing rod. He's always ready for that fish's nibble, so he does his nibbling quickly.  Focused in his fun, Sweetie will spend hours pescando, and Babushka's so glad to have found something that'll keep him fuller longer and keep his energy steady.
