Looking for a cookbook recommendation or recipes

Comment by Andy Taylor on August 9, 2014 at 2:09pm

Well Fed II by Melissa Joulwan has incredible recipes that are healthful and have turned the lives of four of my family members around. I'm next. Right now, I'm injecting 50U of Lantus and 30U of Humalog per day. I expect that to go way down once I start eating like a responsible person. I've had diabetes for 6 yrs now and cannot seem to take it or any of my other diseases and syndromes seriously. Did I give up before even starting? However, I can start again.

Breakfast! Frying pan, Blender, 2 eggs, 2 bananas, coconut or olive oil. Blend ingredients and pour small amount into hot, oiled frying pan to make very small pancakes, on medium heat. These are delicate, so take care when flipping. I sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on em. They are sweet and delightful.

I have had type one diabetes for 22 years. At certain points in my life I had decent control of my blood sugar due to eating well and being fairly active.

I just had some live blood testing done to see why my sugar is out of control, while eating a low carb diet. I have suspected low progesterone, adrenal fatigue among other things in the past. What the blood study told me was that I am showing low magnesium, low coenzyme Q10 and low red cell count. So I have purchased supplements accordingly. I also show clear signs of food sensitivities. Being low carb, I mostly do not have gluten (occasionally I might have a bite or two.) So that leaves dairy! Yikes, all my nice treats involve cheese or a little cream cheese. But my sugar is wild, so I will be off to buy ingredients for some new "treats" to get me started on an experiment to see if this can help.

Does anybody have any breakfast idea?

Comment by Lex on October 23, 2013 at 6:28am

@Missrobbie, Paleo is eating only Meat, veggies, fat, and fruit in moderations. Primal is eating only meat, veggies, fat, grass fed dairy, and fruit. they both eliminate grains, corn, soy, and legumes due to anti-nutrients that cause inflammation.

Is Primal/Paleo diet eliminating Grain and gluten carbs from your diet?
