Mary’s Mini Diet – Day 6

Today started out well.  My blood sugar was down to 101.  This is the lowest I have seen it in a very long time.

One thing I want to note.  Diets affect different people differently.  I have found that after this many days on the potato diet, my joints that have arthritis have begun to ache and are warm to the touch.

This isn’t a problem.  I won’t be going off the diet before the 10 days are up, but I will be switching from potato based to rice based tomorrow and see if that helps for the remaining 4 days.


I am a real potato lover, but potato after potato gets boring, so today I wanted to jazz it up a bit.

Breakfast we had baked potatoes and apples.  I try to get in one fruit a day…usually in the morning.  If I didn’t snack on at least one or two fruits through the day, I’ll have some juice in the evening.

To make my potatoes different, today I had them with mustard and I sprayed them with pickle juice.  It almost tasted like a potato salad.  I also snuck in a small piece of chocolate.  I’m being honest here.  I’m only human.



For lunch, I made deviled potatoes.  I made these how I would make my deviled eggs, but without the mayo.  I used a bit of veggie broth instead.  I had this with a nice, simple salad, which I topped with salsa.  I couldn’t eat all this, so I ended up eating the other half later for snack.




For dinner I made a potato cheese sauce and served it over boiled potato wedges with broccoli and cauliflower.



As usual, before bed I started to feel a bit hungry.  Hubby and I split a can of beets for snack. I saved the juice because it was so pretty, but I’m not sure what I’m doing with it yet.  I’ll probably add it to my rice tomorrow.
