    Hi

    Some vegetables have minimal carbs, but when one is down to 10g at a time, the 2-5g in vegetables are important to count. I don't eat any starchy food including quinoa, and especially not grains.

    I'm not sure if I'm sticking to the 10g limit right now - probably more like 12-15g. Since I'm not looking everything up anymore. When my BG creeps up, I become more diligent in lowering carbs and protein* and then will increase fats. (I've been doing this for over 7 years now and it's more instinctive for me.) *Eating too much protein impacts BG in the long run - which is a bummer because since I can't eat much eggs or dairy, I tend to snack on meat.

    Biography
    I've lived in Japan most of my life. Almost ready to retire and go home to be with my daughter and her four children. Until a year ago I was a Japanese language coach for students learning Japanese in the small school in which my husband worked. Now I teach women to understand and love the Bible. I love reading, do some quilting and crocheting. My mother is in a nearby care facility due to her Alzheimer's.
