Never ever never forget to order the #diabeticmeal on #etihadairways. 
My flight was booked by a travel agent for the #2ruthinNumbers Diabetes Blogger Summit so I didn't think to ask about the diabetic meal until the day before my departure. Well, they needed 48hrs to make the request, so I couldn't get the diabetic meal. 
This is the breakfast that was served. Oh, let us count the carbs.
Fresh fruit-check
Orange juice-check
Chocolate bar-check
Banana cake-check
Frosting-check
Protein-? Where art thou protein? 
There is NO WAY this breakfast would work for me unless my blood sugar was extremely low. Low like, it might be time to eject me from the plane and send me to a hospital. 
Fortunately, my blood sugar was 83 and I was able to eat a small piece of the cake without the frosting. 
The good thing, I always travel with mixed nuts so I ate a few to try to give some balance to the meal. #mealprep 
And trust me, I WILL have the diabetic meal on the return flight!! #diabetics need protein!

  • themrs11302013😨 I would choose the diabetic meal too. I don't have it, but that looks so sweet and unbalanced. Yikes! Not healthy 😔
  • blackdiabeticinfo@themrs11302013 so true. I can't recall a time that I didn't have eggs or a breakfast bar on a plane. This is a sugar rush!
  • deeinuaeI think I may start selecting this option. My complaint is always that EVERYTHING meal is full of carbs on the flights. Thanks for sharing.
  • kaye_vinceThey literally found all the carbs they could find ever in life. Who eats just straight carbs for a meal?????? Weirdness.
