I love the Blue Diamond Smokehouse almonds. I love them so much that when I open the bag I immediately fill 8 little containers so I can limit myself to one two-ounce serving per day.

My new favorite is either 1/2 cup Carb Smart ice cream, or homemade whipped cream either one mixed with 1/4 cup of raspberries (bought frozen no sugar added) thawed and smashed up with a bit of sweetener.

Hold on . . . back up here a minute . . . avocado with cinnamon? Sounds interesting & I won't knock it 'til I've tried it. Thanks ET!

Like black olives, a pepper salad (red bell, orange bell, jalapeno, poblano, cubanelle, etc.. all chopped up and served with a zero carb dressing.), walnuts, raspberries, avocados with cinnamon, etc ...

Or is there just so few of it they don't affect you?

Then again, knowing my love for that kind of snack food, I would worry if I ate one of those I'd eat the entire jar...
not at all...one ounce of nuts is only 5 gm of carb. maybe if I ate the whole can...which..they are pretty good...I probably could

Mmmm avos con cinnamon ... must try!

I am on a jag of flax foccacia / pizza cravings! I made the foccacia for the first time last weekend -- don't ask me WHY not before, I have had the recipe FOREVER ... and loved it! I seasoned the batter with 1/4 tsp each basil and oregano, and 1/2 tsp garlic powder, and sprinkled with lots and LOTS of Italian fresh-grated (ie bag not jar) cheese ... it was wonderful! I was hard-pressed to divide the batch into 3 servings!

I tried 'em tonight & it's good for a change, though I still need a pinch of salt with it. I tried several bites with cinnamon alone, but hadda reach for the salt shaker.

Default BBQ ribs or pulled pork with sauce

I make BBQ pulled pork and ribs, then use Smithfields BBQ sauce without guilt. It's vinegar and red pepper based, from North Carolina. Perfectly tangy, not really spicy, no carbs, and keeps forever. We buy a gallon at a time.
I put some homemade rub on the meat and cook at 250 for 10 hours (pork shoulder) or 3-4 hours (ribs). then I mop sauce on the ribs and finish on the grill. Easy and foolproof.

Gallon of Sauce - $19.99 : Smithfield's Chicken 'n Bar-B-Q, Order BBQ Online - BBQ Shipped Nationwide

For me, it must be lots of ground salt and lemon or lime juice. Eat 'em with a fork! My wife prepares them with sugar and chills like ice cream but I can't stand them that way.

The food I eat doesn`t make my BG react much at all.
During my 1.year with diabetes I`ve tested out lots of different food and lots of different combinations. Learned a lot and did really had sore fingers while learning whar my body accept and what it doesn`t.
I balance my food by using fat and slow carbohydrates together with food that eaten alone makes my BG rise as a rocket.
For example; if I want to eat porridge, I know that my limit for sugar on this is 1 teaspoon, if I also want to have 9 raisins. I can eat this without taking any insulin before the meal, and my BG will raise only about 0,2-0,3.
If I eat a smaller amount of porridge one day and the same amount sugar and raisins, my BG will rise about 1,5 to 3,0 up.
And if I take just one more raisin, my BG will really give me an peak, no matter if I eat twice as much porridge.
I doesnt worry if my diabetes will stop me eating various and good food, I just have to find which combinations suits my body best.

I think we all are different, and what makes my BG stay rocksteady, can make someone elses BG go skyhigh or even drop low.

I love MEAT! So ribeye, bacon, pulled pork, ribs, pot roast, prime rib, etc are my absolute favorites. In the non-meat category I'd add full fat greek yogurt with heavy cream and sweetener (it's 90% fat the way I make it!) and then milk chocolates made out of cocoa powder, coconut oil and sweetener.

Basically this fatty loves fat!
