For a late lunch a chef salad with Boars Head Turkey Pastrami, Sweet Ham, I hope not too sweet, and Provolone with Romaine and red onions. Vinegar and oil, salt and pepper and cut up two hard boiled eggs. Hope it wasn't too much. Might have held off on the eggs. Am definitely not hungry at present. Anybody have an opinion. Is this a good lunch? I guess the meter will tell the story in a couple hours.

Rather than holding the eggs, I think if something should be 'held' it might be the ham and/or onion. I don't know what 'sweet ham' is, but if it was cured with sugar, brown sugar, maple syrup or any other sweetening cures, it may be higher carb than is good for you. If it's possible to check the labels, that would be helpful. Onions are often troublesome too - it's another eat-to-your-meter issue.

Otherwise, chef salads are one of our go-to meals during these hot summer days.

Just make a habit of testing at the one-hour and again at the two-hour interval after meals. That's what will tell you which choices were good and which were bad. Eat to Your Meter.

(and yes, you should not be waiting two hours before testing . . . I know that's what the docs say, but if you're serious about controlling your blood sugar, you need to test at one hour to find if there's any spike)

I still haven't made the switch to a 0 carb dressing
when I next shop i'll be doing that using mayo and
some sort of flavor but first going to try the mayo alone
I believe mayo is completely carb free?
maybe try a carton of heavy/table/whipping cream
for tea/coffee?
bacons still not on sale but its on my list

Mayo does have carbs, about 1g per ounce.

I've used mayo alone - just thin it with a little HWC. And I've mixed it with sour cream, seasoned it with things like worcestershire sauce or juice from jalapenos, even just a dash of garlic salt. You can get really creative here, as long as you aren't adding carbs.

Last week I infused a half cup of olive oil with 2T of cayenne & it has become an incredibly easy way to add some real zing to just about anything - just gotta be sparing with it, because it's HOT!
