Bunjee - I love Brussel's Sprouts cooked that way. Have you ever tried a sprinkle of lemon juice on them - delicious. (That's what Whole Foods puts on their grilled Brussel's Sprouts with garlic and olive oil.)

I have not tried with lemon juice. I will have to try that. Another good way to have Brussel's Sprouts is to cut in half or 4s (depending on size) and saute with pecans. My sis suggested also to saute with onions, but I haven't tried that yet. Got a ton of Brussel's Sprouts on special so able to try some new things with them.

This looks good. I had sweet potato and grilled chicken last night.

"Loaded" cauliflower rice.

Mixed into the cooked cauliflower: (real) bacon crumbs, onion powder, salt and pepper, bacon grease, melted smoked cheese.

Default Just had dinner, so no pic!

In a bowl, organic baby spinach (that was on sale), steamed to just over wilted but not soggy. Diced one thin pork loin chop sauted w/light almond meal coating. The 'shaved' tomato equivalent of a 1/2 inch slice (avoiding tomatoes). 1 avocado chunked, dressing of: 1 TBs sour cream,1/2 tsp of salad mustard, garlic powder dash, 1 tsp inulin. Would have like the spinach raw but 'guts' aren't fond of too much raw vegetable...longstanding problem that is really annoying.

I have yet to get actually hungry since I dropped all grains and refined anything, but do sometimes start feeling 'off' and suspect is a blood sugar thing, but still struggling with getting the testing supplies Rx filled for the first time, so am just guessing.

Love the cauliflower 'potato' salad idea! It looks like cauliflower may become a staple in my kitchen; I love potatoes because they seem to always agree with me, but they're not all that great for BG eh.

Potatoes can be cooked and cooled and some of the starch content is converted to a resistant starch, non-digestible. You can google resistant starch and retrograding potatoes for more info. Some potato varieties are better than others. Not everything starchy can be retrograded, but there are several things. Secret is to allow to cool to ambient and then refrigerating for 24 hours before eating. Then you don't need to over heat or the starch could lose its resistance and slap you up side the head with high BG. The cooler you can eat something, the better, that's why potato salad works. I have had success with new potatoes and baby golden potatoes. I've also had very good luck with anasazi beans.

Thanks; I've already been doing the resistant-starch thing w/potatoes recently but thought I'd just drop them entirely for a while until I get my A1C down. I've read that even when you do use the cooled-and-chilled potatoes they revert only a minimal degree when reheated. Wonder if that's true...

Ive heard not true, but dependent upon temperature reheated to.

Now they say if the starch can be converted to R5 then it won't convert back. I read this when reading about retrograding starch in rice. Something about cooking with coconut oil in the water.

I've had better luck with bean and potatoes than with rice, but have played around with all three in the same meal, as entirely a meal. Was surprised my BG didn't go thru the roof. Portion is critical.

Default Fried green tomato

I had 1/2 cup of fried green tomato, about a 1-1/2 in tomatoe sliced and fried without any breeding. I love fried green tomatoes, pepperoni, and 1/3 stick of celery tonight. To late to be careful I guess. I guess it will be time to pay the piper in the morning. Maybe we are all allowed an off day.
