I'm not sure Michael, maybe a combo of the three?

Cheers to You Good Man~
If you can do it, so can the rest of us!

Cashews have a lot of carbs in them compared to other nuts. I don't even buy them for this reason. Walnuts and almonds are 2 of the best. I use pecans as well.

Cool, I will have 2 substitute 1 of those Nstead of cake next time........
Thanks for the post, Richard...Do you - or anyone else - have trouble w/peanut butter? I have tried all brands including the natural that you stir. I don't eat more than a T per serving but seems like the fat still sticks with me. I would love to incorporate it more if anyone has any suggestions
I have trouble with peanuts and peanut butter. Peanuts are not a nut, they are a legume and I can't eat those lentils and stuff. Took me a month to find this out as I was certain sure that peanuts and peanut butter were a good thing to eat. Ha!
I agree, I have to take insulin every time I eat peanuts or peanut butter. I can eat almonds with no problem. Peanuts are my favorite though.
I have the same issue: peanuts, but not almonds, raise my blood sugar. The rise from peanuts is verrrry gradual, but it definitely makes me high. They would be a great food to eat if I had to go without food for, say, 12 hours.
taco salad with melted cheese, salsa and raw onion (meat only, no beans for low carb) over shredded lettuce or on an endive or Romaine leaf. New one she likes large strawberries (3 or 4) sliced in half with cool whip center, but eaten when it is frozen.
That is a good choice Jan. I eat that kind of salad frequently.
