NOT THE WHOLE CAN!

This weekend I was caught,

Not doing as I ought…

A whole can of chili

For a snack is silly,

It’s blood sugar level spike-wrought!

Tasting good and healthy are unequal,

Lessen portions in any sequel…

Servings per can

More than one I understand,

All at once affects diabetic people!

Changed to turkey and cheese,

Sandwich or two which pleased…

My palate–not the nurse–

Eating too much was worse,

Need to reign in my greedy “needs”.
