Raisin Ginger Alfalfa Sprouts May 25, 2011

Raisin Ginger Alfalfa Sprouts

Jamie says:  Today I had the opportunity to prick myself with a lancet to measure my blood glucose.  I started a new dietetic internship rotation this week- a diabetes outpatient rotation.  About a year or so ago in class, we had to prick our fingers and giver ourselves pretend insulin- at that time, it took me some time to get up the courage to do this.  However, this time I did it right away.  I couldn’t believe myself.  I think after watching patients over the past three days prick their fingers, I felt like it was the least I could do to have some insight into their lives.  (I also counted the carbohydrates of this recipe.)  I’m looking forward to learning a lot about diabetes over the next 4 weeks.
