My guess, the green beans. How much did you have? I can only get away with about 2/3 cup slathered in butter. What else did you eat? It could have been the salmon if you had a huge serving of it. Protein does convert to glucose if you eat too much. But my money is on the green beans.

I think I had about a cup and a half of green beans. I thought they were safe. :-( I guess I need to cross them off my ok-to-eat list and put them on my sometimes list.

In all probability it was the beans. If you have just started on a low carb diet, it could be anything.

It might not have been either the beans or salmon depending what your bg was before dinner.

If you were 100 before dinner and were 153 2 hours later, that's not good. If you were 150 before and were 153 after, then your dinner isn't the problem, but bringing your bg down in general is.

For me they're fine and one of my staples - but only about 3/4 cup with LOTS of butter.

^^thats a good point. I didn't test before dinner, but had a few strawberries that afternoon which raises my BS high (wont so that again) so that may have been a factor

Yeah green veg are not a zero, for sure!

Broccoli is lower-carb than green beans, and both are lower than brussels sprouts!

I agree with moon. I can eat green beans all day and have no issues with BG. Also, what was the salmon seasoned with? Many OTC seasoners will use brown sugar or maple for sweetness
