Good trend

I was just glad to see some enterprising soul attempting to make a carb heavy staple with something not only low carb but also nutritious. I hope this is the beginning of a good trend.

I haven't checked my numbers but will soonest. FYI, they are very thin but have a lot of tensile strength - they hold up well. I'll see what I can do.

3 loaves!

Because the shipping costs were high, and because the reviews on blood sugar were very good, I got 3 loaves - 2 "rye" (no rye in them!) and one sesame. I agree, they tended to be dry. I liked the rye...

Sounds fine to me on the blood sugar front. I wouldn't recommend large amounts of pasta merely because it's a highly processed wheat product and relatively devoid of nutrients. But it is easy to cook...

With your fasting BG in the 70's & 80's, I don't think you should be worrying about diabetes. I think your blood sugar spiked because of the highly processed, nutritionally deficient white bread you...

Wink GG crackers

The GG Bran Crispbread I was eating once a day, every day, was my tipoff. But now I'm realizing that Carbquick is probably also off the docket. Thank goodness I found Optimist's crackers! It makes...
