Cut the BS Interviews IndyCar Driver and Fellow T1D Charlie Kimball

What an honor it was to chat with Charlie Kimball about IndyCar Racing and T1D!

I recently had the honor and opportunity to do an interview the driver of this year’s AJ Foyt #4 Novo Nordisk Tresiba car, Charlie Kimball. Charlie Kimball is the first licensed driver with diabetes to win a race in the NTT IndyCar Series. If you know me, you know I was an IndyCar fan before my own T1D diagnosis. I woke up from DKA and thought, “Whoa, they’re using insulin to to lower my blood sugars? I hope they gave me Novolog, because that’s what Charlie Kimball uses!” And now we’re doing an interview together. I’m totally fan girling over here!

Please watch our interview above and please be sure to catch the Genesys 300 from the Texas Motor Speedway live on NBC on Saturday, 8:00pm Eastern! It’ll be such a rush! I look forward to seeing that giant screen one day!

Thank you to Charlie Kimball for taking the time to speak with us at Cut the BS…I Mean Blood Sugar! I had a blast doing this interview so let me know in the comments below who we should invite next!

Thanks so much for reading as always remember to

Love Deeply,

Laugh Often,

and always Cut the BS!

Deliciously Diabetic: Unicorn Cauliflower Mash

I used to love mashed potatoes as well as mac and cheese. Now don’t get me wrong, if I want to eat either of those things, I bolus for it and eat it. When I got diagnosed though, I found that they just weren’t worth the insulin I had to take to eat it.

Cauliflower seems to be the in vegetable these days but then saw purple cauliflower in the grocery store.  I had to have it!  And since unicorns became the in animal…I thought I’d name my cauliflower mash after the magical being!  Anyhow enjoy!

Here’s the steps I take to make some awesome Unicorn Cauliflower Mash!

1. Pick a cute head of purple cauliflower. And wash thoroughly:

2. Chop it up into pieces. I found out after taking these pictures that it is easier to cut them into big pieces, microwave it and then chop it into smaller pieces. I find that chopping it up into tiny pieces has been therapeutic for me so depending on your level of time or patience you’d like to spend on this piece…go for it!

3. Add 2 tablespoons of water and heat in microwave about 4 minutes.

It’s crazy how dark the cauliflower gets when it cooks!

Next thing we do is we mash that bad boy up!!! I like it lumpy so I don’t mash it up as much as others.  Or if it find that we will have super mashed up cauliflower mash when I’ve had a particularly stressful day!  Makes for a great win win situation…yummy food and the release of stress!

Then, add the good stuff that you love adding to mashed potatoes; sour cream, cheese, etc.  I love adding cream cheese to cauliflower mash, although I don’t think I’d ever add cream cheese to mashed potatoes.

And boom…done!!! Now-a-days, I’d probably add some chopped up fresh green onion or chives on top to give it some contrast…or maybe to get your peeps that don’t like unicorn things to eat something that is Joker themed!

Here’s the throwback picture of me back when I was using Afrezza!

Thanks for reading and let us know in the comments below if you tried making this dish and how you liked it!!!

Remember to…

Eat well.

Laugh often.

And always, Cut the BS!

Things to Do During Quarantine

Hi Everyone!  It’s me…your Cut The BS Girl!

All this COVID-19 stuff, self-quarantining, and social distancing got us thinking of our community and how we can help.  We thought it would be a great opportunity to share with everyone a few ways to spend this time so here we go:

  • Going for a walk
  • Bake that beer bread recipe you’ve always wanted to try
  • Play hide and go seek
  • Learn a new dance
  • Check my blood sugar
  • Drinking juice to get myself back in range
  • Refill my Glucose Tabs
  • Have a drink with my boo

There’s so much we could be doing during this time!  We could be spending with ourselves,  with our loved ones, and of course, with our diabetes. 

So yea be sure to stay well,

Stay positive and

Always…always Cut the BS!

 

Please tell us in the comments below how you are spending this time!  We’d love to spend our time reading what everyone is doing!
