Latest Activity: Jan 27

Inspired by the "Trader Joe's Junkies - whats on your list?" discussion

We thought about creating a database of the healthy food choices one can do while shopping on some of national supermarket chains. And why not the your local Farmer's Market


* Take into account foods that give you good results at managing your diabetes.
* If it is an high carb / high fat item, please share with us your secret to keep your blood sugar levels under control :)
* It there is a product you know it has been difficult to consume while keeping good control (even if you bolus following the tag) listed at the end of your list as NOT RECOMENDED alt the end, or something like that.

This could help a lot us us while we keep having fun: :)

We have been using an organic produce delivery service that will bring a box of seasonal fruit and veggies to directly to your house. It is great. We always get new things and that way we always have fresh produce at home. It is easier to budget for it, since it is always the same weekly amount.

Chocolate! I love dark chocolate and I know I can have some after a meal as long as I bolus beforehand but I really want to try to get some sugar free chocolate with malitol rather than splenda or sucralose. Any recommendations?

OK here goes...not in any specific order...

whipped peanut butter
cucumbers (good ones)
carrots (big sweet pro-vitamin ones)
fresh broccoli and cauliflower
sf popsicles
rice cakes (plain lightly salted)
cream cheese (whipped)
sf jelly
greek yogurt
green grapes
cheese curds
pearled barley
Ummmmm...that is it for now. I'm ADD big time and will prolly have to go back in the next day or two for stuff I forgot. I am a grazer. It is hard for me to sit still long enuff to eat a meal. My trigs and lipids always come back great. I don't eat much meat at all.

I made a vegan s***ake walnut pate and a terrible s***ake miso soup and am now officially sick of s***akes but have a lot left. Any ideas from the peanut gallery? Does anything freeze well or should I just freeze the reat and try to add them to a vegetable broth one day? This is what I get for mixing up 1 cup with 1 pound. One pound is a lot of s***akes.

Lately I have been remembering recipes wrong and buying too much produce. Example: I thought one cup of s***ake mushrooms was one pound of s***ake mushrooms. Now I will have to make a lot of mushroom recipes. To top it all off, the "marvelous" mushroom soup for which the s***akes were purchased for turned out to be a terrible, boring recipe. Next I will try the mushroom walnut vegan pate, stuffed mushrooms and m,ake another batch of not diabetic friendly soba noodle soup. Green beans were the last item I over purchased. Stir fry one day, garlicky green beans the next. But this is slowing down my attempt of cooking through my cookbook. I am more than half way through the 200 recipes.
