Or.... you could start your own daily menu thread, like ShottleBop has done, and use it as your meal journal. It'd be more personal that way.

No need to limit eggs . . . they're almost a perfect food for diabetics. There are days I eat four or five eggs. If I didn't enjoy red meat so much, I could prob'ly live on eggs & avocados!

Eggs are nature's perfect food. There are even people who go on "egg fasts" to kick off ketosis. I don't think I would want to eat ONLY eggs, but there's no danger in it.

Any time you eat any food on a very regular basis, it is a good idea to keep an eye out for strange symptoms that indicate you are developing a sensitivity (said the food-sensitive pro).

Beyond that, eggs are amazing, healthy, and should be enjoyed whenever possible.

For workplace purposes or on-the-go, I also like to carry string cheese, Slim-Jims or jerky, and/or nuts.

(Peanuts and cashew spike me, but most others are OK -- it's yet another check-your-meter thing I'd also be careful about flavored Slim-Jims or jerky, especially teriyaki and BBQ.)

To get more elaborate, I'll sometimes carry zip-top cans or packets of chicken, tuna or salmon with several packets of mayo, salt and pepper. (Watch out for flavored canned/packeted meats -- they may be seasoned with sugar, even if they're supposed to be savory.)

At home, there are always cold cuts in the fridge. Natural, organic and uncured deli meats are becoming more widely available, if you'd prefer to go that route.

Shalynne, your stash of food sounds like ours. We do keep lots of deli meats on hand and cheese. I love almonds and salted sunflower seeds
My sons ducks and chickens are laying 4 eggs a day now. Ill be glad when they lay enough for us too. I buy eggs from a little boy down the rd when he has enough and supplement them with lacal store bought eggs.
