SXSW 2017: Breakfast Taco BG Challenge

Now presenting.... the 2nd Annual Breakfast Taco BG Challenge at SXSW!

What went down at SXSW?

Just like last year, our challenge crew included people with and without diabetes, and everyone experienced a little post-taco BG turbulence. Check out our video to see how our BG-checking, insulin-dosing, and carb-counting skills stood up against these carb-a-licious Texas street tacos! (And watch One Drop user Lola win a free One Drop | Chrome!)

For those of you who haven't seen last year's challenge, please check it out here: SXSW 2016: Breakfast Taco BG Challenge

As with every BG challenge, the goal is to check, chow down, and see what happens!

Here's how to play

1) Grab some friends.

2) Pick a challenge food.

3) Check blood. (Friends, even if you don't have diabetes, you've got to check too!)

4) Estimate carbs.

5) Take insulin.

6) Check blood a little later to see how you did! (Again, friends, that means you too!)

You can define the "winner" however you like -- we're all winners here!

All right, that's enough taco 'bout it. On to the video! :-)
