Look forward to hearing more from you.

I don't have blood sugar problems, thank God. But, I don't eat a lot of sugar. I do allow myself some GF treats, but in small amounts. I psych myself out by telling myself how much it costs.
I also eat salads or baked or broiled fish if I go out, and only have vinagrette dressings. Most sandwich places will let you get the innards in a lettuce wrap or as a salad. Then you don't get the mayo and all that stuff. And, of course, no croutons.

You can use cinnamon to help with controlling your sugar. It helps your body use the sugar the way it is suppose to.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Be careful with oats to use certified gluten free. They can be contaminated...I would stay away from most GF specialty products if I were you. They are very high glycemic! I would look at ideas from South Beach type diets where there is little to no processed carbs at all. I tend to eat more this way...I use lettuce wraps for sandwiches, eat a lot of fruits and veggies and do brown rice and quinoa for the occasional grains. I do eat Udis bread sometimes but that is high glycemic too. Try and balance the GF foods well with protein and fat if you are going to eat them this may help. emoticon

Glad to have found this group--very depressed over having yet another special need to limit my choices. Working on stabilizing my blood sugars; most gluten-free products are disastrously high-glycemic so commercial options limited. Already use a lot of oat; learning how to use chickpea and other legume flours.
Encouragement and food ideas VERY welcome.

Peace out,
Mary S.
