Both Amazon.com and Netrition.com have good variety.

I had to clear my kitchen of all the high-carb foods, and replace with things like deviled eggs, plain hot wings (no breading), avocados, s/f jello, cheese of all kinds, and nuts, olives, etc.

If you need to include fiber in your meal plan, you can use vegetables like celery, asparagus, artichokes, broccoli & cauliflower, etc., which are low-carb and can be eaten with a nice rich ranch or bleu cheese dip, which are high-fat and very good for diabetes plans too. If you'd rather cook your veggies, then switch out the dip for some delicious homemade hollandaise sauce. While zero carb is theoretically possible, it's good to get our fiber from our diet & not have to buy commercial products to keep things moving.
I'll pass on the Walden Farms and DaVinci syrups. I tried those things once and the Salad Dressings tasted like Chemicals - pure CHEMICALS and it burned my tongue!!

Well, I just wanted to report back in and update my Thread.
I'm still going strong on my LC/HF diet, although it's not really all that high in Fat content. I just don't like the taste of most fatty foods and never had much of an appetite. I'm doing well to eat even 1,200 calories most days now.

I'm planning to ask my Endo on Thursday for permission to "fine tune" my Insulin injections. I know I need the Insulin since I don't make much of my own Insulin, but now that I'm eating only 30-40 grams of carbs per day, my pre-meal dose of 20 units is just too much - especially on my no carb meals. So, we'll see what he advises on Thursday.

I can hardly wait to get my Ha1c and lipids tested again. I know they will be MUCH improved.

Love my new way of eating. Life is GREAT!!

How do you cook eggs in the microwave and not have a super sticky bowl when done?

It also save the washing up of a sticky pan...I'm all about economy of energy...

I think people over cook them...I zap it once for 60seconds and stir then in 30second intervals until just before being done...remove and put into a bowl and then soak the bowl you cooked them in straight away...it washes clean after I finish eating...

I used to cook my morning eggs in the nuker every day. I would put a tortilla in the bottom of the bowl, crack the egg in and beat it. The tortilla would keep the bowl clean. I have also used some butter or bacon grease in the bowl to lube it up first when forgoing the tortilla. Going in stages and stirring also helps a ton, overcooked eggs will stick like super glue.

I got a hard anodized griddle for Christmas and now cook everything on it. Nothing sticks and I clean it with a paper towel or by running water on it while it's still super hot, the water boils off and it's clean. Eggs takes about a minute longer than the microwave and tastes much better.

Heh heh, I bet I overcooked the eggs then, because the bowl was extremely hard to get clean!

Thanks, I'll try cooking them again. :-)

That sounds like my cast iron skillet - never gets soap - never gets scrubbed - just wiped out with paper towels or as you say, sometimes a little steaming water.
