I haven't tried those. I picked up one that was supposed to be a microwave keto cake in a mug, but didn't like it. I'm not sure if it was Duncan Hines or not. Please come back and let us know how you liked it.Has anybody tried the Duncan Hines Keto Friendly mixes? There is yellow cake, chocolate chip cookies, and brownie mix. I picked up the cake and cookie mixes. Going to try making blueberry muffins with the cake mix, maybe, since it is blueberry season.
Which did you try? What were your before and after blood sugar readings?I tried it and checked my bg after to see how "keto" it really was and was very disappointed. Spiked me pretty good.
Sorry I don't remember the brand now. It was several months ago that I tried it. It just said Keto on the box so I tried it. I don't remember my reading beforehand either, sorry. I just remember it spiked me like a real piece of cake pretty much. Same with so-called "keto" friendly breads. They spike me the same as regular bread. Net carbs mean nothing to my body I guess! I know everyone is different and some people can eat these things and it won't spike them, but sadly they do for me. We all have to just know our own bodies and test and not just count on the label saying it is keto friendly.Which did you try? What were your before and after blood sugar readings?
Note that these are keto-friendly, not keto. My experience with keto is that it made me insanely intolerant of carbs-any amount would spike me. I had a very rough 3 months when I quit keto. I am back to my normal carb tolerance now, thank goodness.
Very true. I remember when Dreamfields brand pasta was first introduced and how they advertised how it was good for diabetics -- only to be followed a little while later by posts from diabetics showing that eating it may not have shown up on their meter an hour after eating it but it sure showed up 2-3 hours later. I've also learned I can eat 1/2 cup or so of watermelon or cantaloupe and not suffer a spike. But it's all hard-won knowledge brought on by measuring, eating, and measuring again. We're all different.I know everyone is different and some people can eat these things and it won't spike them, but sadly they do for me.

I would never have thought so, but, yes, they're quite good in long-cook dishes like that. They don't do much of a job thickening like potatoes do, but everything has a price, amiright? 🙂And radishes, of all things, are a great potato substitute in pot roast, stew, and soup.
