Don't give up, CD. There are recipes online for making your own. Salt, good water, garlic, dill, pickling spices. Just like Bubbie.

I then checked with my other meter.... 39.8!! Sugar is not listed as one of the ingredients though. Oh well... will never find Bubbies here so no pickles for me.
Did you put the pickle juice in the meter strip instead of blood? I don't think that will really work, the meter is designed to pick up bg in the blood, but can also be fooled by other things, in addition it looking at concentration through out the whole body so there really is no comparison that can be made by using the meter to measure the food. Best method is eat several pickles and see if it spikes you.

Not much for eating Pork Rinds, to dry or something, like them fried arouns a piece o fish though. But I made a discovery while tricking our grandkid back to our house, 2 hr trip, TOM's MEGA Cracklins. These are in a class all to themselves, almost like over cooked bacon with hot sauce on them. I will have these laying around the house for some time to come.

Gee that's a terrific idea.... Sautéed with seasoning, I've discovered a little of something well seasoned is much more satisfying than the portion ( small allowance) and always satisfies my craving

I eat low fat cheese on toast in morning. Usually puts me on high end of
Ok, tho if I cut out the bread it'd be much lower..... I did hear low fat can be high carbs however you checked the label. I'm relatively new as well... Welcome aboard you will get a great education here.... Lots of wonderful folks!!

Low-fat/fatfree products are usually suspect because in order to maintain the same volume, food processors replace the fats with carby fillers & thickeners. It's just better all the way around if we avoid processed foods, and that includes low-fat products.

And the main thing is to remember that natural saturated fats and monounsaturated fats are actually GOOD for us. Steer clear of the polyunsaturated fats (PUFAs), but eat your fill of the first two I mentioned. The dairy fats like butter, cream, sour cream, full-fat yogurt, etc., are excellent, bacon is good for us too. Examples of monounsaturated fats are nuts (peanut butter! ), olives & avocados.

With regard to snacking on fruits, the best policy is eat-to-your-meter. I think all of us are good with avocados & okay with judicious amounts of berries (tomato fits in here too - it's a fruit and some of us tolerate it in small to moderate portions). But the other fruits named are high in natural sugar, which impact our blood sugar in the same way as all other sugars - by raising it. So back to our old adage . . . test, Test, TEST!
