A Bit of Chit Chat Coming From My Kitchen

I have pictures of the ribfest we enjoyed recently and the anchovies but today I want to share a bit of kitchen chit chat.  My husband was recently officially classified as being impaired glucose intolerant.  So we went to the dietician only to to find out our diet is very healthy other than portion control.  I picked up a couple of free recipe books because they were free and you can never have too many recipes.  I also got a really neat recipe book from the Ontario White Beans Producers. Beans and bean flour is one ideal way to go gluten free so beans helps not only with diabetes but also celiac disease and glucose intolerance.  I am actively working at getting more special diet recipes on this blog.  There are some here already - low sugar, low fat and low sodium.  But I will be increasing those recipes to include special diet recipes.  Please watch for those recipes under the label of special diet.  I have to say that the majority of the recipes under this category that I'm testing really can be eaten by anyone without compromising flavour or singling a guest out.  That is very important to me.    I am in the kitchen testing recipes so will be sharing them starting tomorrow.  Keep an eye on the special diets recipes in future.

Simply cutting back on wheat products, pastas, rice, potatoes and most sugars (honey, maple syrup included) will provide huge results.

Many people think they just have to avoid sugar, but all the above immedietely raise your blood sugars just as regular sugar will.

Another tip, always eat a protien & a fat with these high carbs to lessen the blood sugar spike.
