Day 4 Januvia and Taco Salad

Since I started the day testing, I figured I would keep going and test another meal.  Lunch was going to be homemade taco salad using chili made with ground beef, kidney and black beans, tomatos with chilis, garlic and onion. I do pretty good with the chili, probably due to high fiber in the beans and fat in the meat, as long as I stick to about a one cup serving and NO cornbread😔. Salad is okay though☺
My taco salad was green leaf lettuce, 1/2 cup of chili, sharp cheddar cheese, sour cream, and avocado for a carb count of 31.
 This chili also had some brown rice in it. I won't add that again! STILL:
Started at 98 and an hour later at 107 mg/dL. See for yourself!
Glucose Numbers
Chili was okay before but now even better. I can eat more than 1 cup or maybe next time, add a corn muffin!! (Especially without the rice - never again!)
I have eaten more carbs a day on Januvia than the previous 50-75 carb a day for about the last 1.5 years. I am excited to eat more - 
More Food
More Carbs
More Variety
Food has been a struggle for me.  Do you struggle with food too?
