i heard squirrels were low carb!!!
If you don't smother 'em in possum gravy!
Oppossum is way too greasey.
Yeah, but who can eat them without biscuits and gopher grvey???
You know they're nothing but tree rats!
Sure is Flo. Rabbit is too. Quail, pheasant, deer all are wonderful as well. All low carb too, unless you lather them with mashed potatoes and gravy. Getting hungry!
Sounds like I'm home with the"good olde boys"!
I do not enjoy wild (cottontail) rabbit. We raise domestic rabbits, and THAT is fantastic. It's actually a different species and tastes a lot different. Domestic rabbit doesn't really "taste like chicken" but can be used the same way. It is a lot more nutritionally dense than chicken, so if you generally eat 4 ounces of chicken you'd only need 3 of rabbit. My favorite way is barbecued on the grill!
Such a tough question really... Each of us processes food differently, what may be horrendous for some is easy for others. The food I can't figure out how to bolus for is Chicago style stuffed pizza. You know, the kind that's 4 inches thick and packed to the very top with cheese, sauce and various pizza toppings. I LOVE it, but it does not work for me... Ever... I can count on being in the 400 club with that stuff every time!
OMG! You guys are all hysterical! So, I posted a legitimate reply, then went back and read the entire thread. You're all NUTS!

I'm assuming Lead Paint Chips are the ones being described. Latex paint chips should be fine for type 1's. I would, however, avoid rusty nails. You wanna talk about a "spike"... And, probably droppings of any kind. They tend to disagree with your digestive tract. Fine on glucose levels, but not so much on the tummy ;-)
Hello Ken:

Sure, "endless quantities" would be a serious never! Foods that have sugar, syrup, frosting, glaze sitting on top (or oozing out of it) in the generic should be avoided like an ancient plague. We can have em but must know their nutritional context to prevent ~sugar whiplash~

A typically

Anything with trans fats ,hydronated oils, Fried carbs like french fries. Any with hfcs is out.
