Yes, am learning the value of the digital food scale on the kitchen counter - I can have 2 ounces or 50-56 grams of most any food and be able to balance it if I choose to - this has been a way of enjoying all non- processed foods in moderation this way and
1. keeping blood sugars balanced and
2. weight stable and
3. slow decline and pain levels in fair control.
*** Need to come back to working harder at choosing ANTI- and NON- inflammatory foods.

Anti-inflammatory choices ...I made a special meal to meet and great our daughter's Beau for the first time - slow cooked lovely beef roast in the oven over bed of onions and potatoes...kind of borderline but good clean food then all the rest of the table was FRESH veggies and fruit - cherries, apricots, cantaloupe, raspberries, blueberries... then veggies broccoli, carrots, celery, cucumbers fresh dressing from homemade mayo/goat yogurt/ and fresh herbs. Kefer in a pitcher beside the berries... such fun . Then regrettably I did not make "from scratch brownies but used a gluten free mix with sugar in it - but offered choice of ice crem from store or home made mason jar ice cream with goat milk and dark chocolate and a touch of honey. It was wonderful and special meal for this special time ...oh and we really like her beau!!!

Ate only 37 carbs yesterday! FBG = 116! Improvement! My main goal us to eat less than 70 carbs per day.

Timing of food important too. Trying to change around food schedule to morning/afternoon.

This will help my diabetes/inflammation.

Thurs resisted Ice cream at the market, chose fresh raspberries for our dinner and froe a few for another day.

Fri resisted hubbies cookies that always sit open on the counter - got more ice into my tea with a little splash of apple cider vinegar to make it special and lunch of boiled egg and Mini-Babybel cheese and a square of 72%Ghirardelli Intense dark chocolate.

Actually called a salsa...
Either de-vein raw and then cook or get cooked shrimp - I used canned and will go with regular coarsely chopped pre-cooked next time...8ounces into large bowl
Juice of 1-2 limes [bottled juice will work but not as crisptasting] pour over meat to marinate while chopping other ingredients then mix all together and enjoy...
1.5 avocado, small sweet onion, cucumber of choice - really adds crunch so I use a large one, plum tomato, salt and pepper to taste [I use DASH and SEA SALT in everything!]

This was so nice , cool and delicious - I used gluten free crackers since I am celiac but would work to use thin slices of cucumber as a chip or the popular veggie chips hubby likes Lay's potato chips!

I saved out one small serving and used it as a salsa over my breakfast omelette today!!

WOW - family gathering with tables of food choices - I knew ahead of time to take my own
4 bottles of water, gluten free chips for the delicious shrimp/avocado/cucumber salsa I made; baked chicken breasts to avoid the bar-b-q beef and hot dogs and blackberries from local market. I did add a slice of watermelon, and small serving of my favorite potato salad. Had a lovely time, came home satisfied and no bloating or tummy ache.

I sautee sweet onions over medium heat with EVOO. Then I add whatever veggies I want. I have used eggplant with sweet bell pepper and a little chicken broth with some garlic, and chop up.some fresh tomato. Add fresh mushrooms too. Add tabasco to taste.

Asparagus goes great with fresh mint and onions. You can also add eggs and make scrambled veggie eggs.

I also like to add kielbasa sausage to onions, garlic, sweet bell peppers. It is really yummy.

Sometimes I will add garlic hot pepper sauce, too. Play around with different flavors.

I have also made sliced summer squash in the microwave with sweet onion, a little spray of EVOO and tarragon.

I also make chicken soap with onions, garlic, celery, and add zucchini and summer squash. I will cook a sweet potato in the microwave, and then take the peel off and chop it into the soup. It is all so good!

Linda,
I microwave my veggies for 3 minutes and then eat them with a 0 fat Greek yogurt/EVOO dip - no spices and no skillet, but adding portabella mushrooms makes the dish yummy.

Would you share more how you do your "skillet of veggies" - what do you put in and what seasonings if any? I just don't like my veggies and struggle to eat them when I know I need to.

Yes, the processed GF treats are usually just not worth the cost or the reactions and I know they are not healthy for me.

Resisting sugar becomes easier for me with passing time - Cutting the carbs to overcome the PRE-DIABETIC Diagnosis has given me reason to clean up that area of my life too. But did not take away the sweet tooth - I do miss so many things!!! Learning to find joy in things other than food - but then it blows up in my face when in the public arena of life. Deep breath and smile and say no thank you but know that it often also hurts the feelings of hostess.

Resisted purchasing the old GF treat - Ice cream and cinnamon bar - then splurged on a salmon steak for a reward - HaHaHa

I have gluten intolerance and must stay away from gluten 100 percent. It makes it easy to turn down desserts as it just isn't worth it for me. I even have reactions to certain gluten free desserts!

If the mind mends, the body will follow.

Gluten free is working for me!

Have been reading/listening to short videos again about the way gluten works in our bodies and the need to be totally, 100%gluten FREE when celiac - sometimes that gets to be a grey line in real life and an encouragement for me [ at theDr.Com ] by Dr. Tom O'Bryan.

I have invested in some 72%COCOA BARS - and sticking to only one square per day. Enjoying and reducing my craving for chocolate.

Just read back through you girl's notes and was inspired!!! THank you for sharing this way - will try to get more faithful in sharing in too.

CHOICE: frozen okra, onion, radish mix sauted and eggs scrambled in for breakfast.

Resisted a stop at McDonalds for chocolate milkshake - my traditional celebration when I get certain paperwork done and taken into courthouse ...just raised my iced tea from home in a little toast and came home and had an extra reading time and short nap. I do have a pint of dairy free/gluten free ice cream to share with hubby on Sunday after we sign the annual income tax forms and seal the envelope. But this is a healthy , clean, planned treat and brand. HaHa

Sorry for the sore tummy... sounds like a great plan to wait before eating raw foods.

My lunch consists of a variety of veggies and I find 3 minutes in the microwave not only makes them more digestible, but the colors are heightened.

Anti-inflammatory choices - 3 veggie omelet for breakfast - lightly sauted strawberries for dinner and sweet potato for lunch ...

going bland for sore tummy and avoiding raw foods for a few days - home made yogurt is pretty liquidy but trusting has the good bugs in it to help - will be buying some commercially made kefirs and yogurts the four days I am on holiday with daughter and banana and avocado seem to be pretty gentle.

Strongest anti-inflammatory foods were avocado, cabbage, lettuce

Things I resisted were milkshake, ice cream, cheese all comfort foods when I travel and I passed them ALL !!! YEAH !

Learning - what is called imitation Lobster is made from tilapia but lots of other none-acceptable things in the ingredients - This is a new something for me - introduced on my trip and liked the taste- but when I bought some, still like the taste but not sure if I want to repeat purchase.
