Beat Diabetes with Low-Carbing!
Bacon Rules!! Seriously, I found this blog that is being written by an ex-vegan of all people called "Bacon is a Super Food", with the emphasis on is. LOL Amusing! She is a good writer. Wish I was - I am so booooring and stuffy, it's just not funny! I know it and I'm sorry, but I really have a lot to learn about writing. I'm more of a practical person that likes to come up with innovative recipes - I like food chemistry even more than actual cooking. I like to invent new recipes, especially dessert-type recipes to satisfy my ridiculous sweet tooth! Does that sound weird?
Bacon Nachos (the photo!) - Melt cheese over crisp fried bacon with salsa, savory taco-seasoned ground beef, guacamole, lettuce, and whatever else comes to mind.
I was on an excellent blog and found this comment under one of the posts and thought I'd like to share it. It made an impression on me and I bet it will on you too. It's good to remind ourselves from time to time that we are on the right track nutrition-wise.
"I was eating two carb meals ever Saturday to satisfy my cravings. After about a month I realized I felt crummy ever Sunday morning. I felt weak, I had my exercise pains back on Sunday and I kina felt like I had the flu. Yes I woke up.
I eat about 40-60 grams of carbs a day spread out evenly over 6 meals. I was once Insulin dependent and on an Insulin pump using 150-200 units a day, still not able to control my blood sugars. Today I use no Insulin and no medications at all. My blood sugars are always normal. I don’t even take aspirin because I feel so good. I am 54 and I feel like I am 35.
Low carb is the way for me now. Beat Diabetes with a low carb lifestyle!"
Wow, what a short and sweet, powerful testimonial for anyone with diabetes reading this!
