Re: [IPk] RE: DAFNE courses in the UK: free foods?

Yes I bolus for cherries and strawberries (and in fact all fruit) but 
not for things like lettuce and cucumber and most typical salad 
vegetables (which I don't think are protein) apart from tomatoe, carrots 
etc. I don't bolus for things like mushrooms either although I know 
there is some carb in (generally I don't eat that many mushrooms at a 
time though). If I'm eating something under 5g carb then I don't 
generally bolus as it doesn't make any difference for me.
