Default Diet?

Ok, so everyone harps around about eating properly and getting excursise and all that jaz, but what in gods name are we suppose to eat?

I've checked probably 10 - 15 differnt websites online, and I have yet to find a convincing diet. I'm looking for full recepies that I can use to cook breakfast/lunch/dinner. I don't mind taking an hour to make dinner, but breakfast needs to be fast.

All the meals I've found online still have tons of sugar and startch! I've even seen many a recepie with upwards to a cup of sugar - and they are still flaunted as "diabetic friendly" meals!

So here's the question? Can anyone help me find a nice good variety (20-30 differnt) of meals for breakfast/lunch/dinner? I'm kinda an orgonized person, and for meals I thrive on having a menu setup for the whole week. I'd love to be able to fill it out for two or three weeks, and then alternate stuff around for a while.

Welcome aboard, Pherion!

If breakfast is your biggest hurdle, and you're already well organized, then fry up a few pounds of bacon, sausage patties, etc., wrap them in individual servings & pop them in the freezer. By the time you can drop an egg in the skillet & get it cooked, you can have the meats thawed to go alongside.

If you crumble the bacon/sausage, you can make an omelet quicker than scat . . . just scramble an egg or two around in the skillet, sprinkle on the bacon/sausage/whatever along with a sprinkle of grated cheese & away you go. Add a low-carb high-fiber tortilla, and you can have a wrap in nothing flat.

Another thing I've started having for breakfast is a whole avocado. It's one of the few fruits that doesn't spike my bg. I just slice it in half, remove the pit, and eat it right out of the "shell" with a spoon.

For a special breakfast, I like sausage gravy, and that is a snap too, if you have sausage already cooked/crumbled in the freezer. Just heat it in a skillet, add heavy cream cut with water about 1:1, and a splash of tabasco or wooster sauce. (since my diagnosis, I have replaced milk in my recipes with this cream/water mixture. It's virtually NO carbs. Milk, of course, contains lactose, and therefore - carbs, regardless if it's skim or whole milk - still carby.) Since sausage gravy is nothing without a biscuit to ladle it over, you can search out low-carb baking mixes for necessities like these! I have several recipes for biscuits/pancakes/etc., and I'll try to get them posted this evening.

All is not lost! There are wonderful low-carb meals awaiting you!

I've been eating turkey bacon and an egg white omelet that is really working for me. I also add just a couple of slices of strawberries on the side.

Default Pherion? You still lurking?

I'm going back through the Diabetes Recipes folder & bump up some of the ones from the early days of the board. I promise I'll watch the sugar/starch content . . .

Hope you'll find plenty to eat!

I mainly stick with meats and seafoods, green veggies and salads. In place of white bread, I eat sourdough bread. (Google for info on sourdough bread and diabetes). Snacks are usually nuts, hardboiled eggs and bacon rinds. Pasta is made from the Dreamfield's brand of products which is low in carbs. I developed a formula of baking diabetic-friendly desserts which do not significantly raise my blood sugar. The formula is found on my website for The Diabetic Pastry Chef .

I find through personal experence that I'm best of not really staying with specific foods that much, rather I've learned that the key is how acidic the food is. In fact, there is a school of thought that claims this, combined with cronic low oxygen levels in the blood, is the reason for most all degenerative diseases, including diabetes.

I've some specific information on this at this post on my website. PM me and I'll shoot you the link.
