One thing that many of us low carbers really miss is pizza. There's a place in Chicago's, Gino's East, that offer a fabulous sausage pizza that only has one piece of sausage. It's basically a sausage patty the size of the pizza. The meatza is based on that concept, except their is no dough crust, the pizza is built directly on the sausage.
This definitely satisfies my pizza craving, it's even good the next day cold for breakfast.
Still undergoing some… Continue

I am really enjoying eating cool crisp foods during the sweltering heat we've had here in Austin these past few weeks.
A quick and yummy snack to cool you off and is refreshing is sliced pear drizzled with lemon juice. I like crisp pears.
A medium, chilled pear is approx 26 grams of carbs, 96 calories, adds potassium to the body, and provides approx 5 grams of fiber which we all need.
Peel a medium firm pear, divide into quarters vertically, cut out inner core, then… Continue

Yesterday, as I had promised myself, I watched the calories, fat and, of course, the carbs and I woke up this morning a pound lighter. Yay!!! I walked 2 miles and did some yoga for my abs. So, I am doing everything I can to combat weight gain. It's working!!! Today will be very much of the same. The exercise part is easy because I do that anyway. The "watching" part is the hard part. I didn't watch calories before. I've always kind of watched the fat because I just don't really want to eat… Continue

This is a somewhat higher calorie meal, but one could potentially cut up each chicken breast half in half pieces, themselves, to make for smaller caloric weight if needed.

I have an old Mennonite cookbook from my mother's collection that I use quite a bit. If you've never tried a good, old fashioned borscht, then you have been missing out on one of the best meals in a bowl there is.
This recipe is a compilation of several traditional Mennonite recipes. The nice thing about borscht is that you can change it around to suit what you have on hand, and it always works out.

The weather in the Yukon has been hot, hot, hot! This week has been in the 30's every day (celcius). We've been grilling a lot of our dinners - grilled corn on the cob, eggplant, zuchinni, mushrooms, peppers, asparagus, and pretty much any other veggie that finds its way into the crisper. We have them with grilled lean pork loin or chicken breast most of the time.
I still find ways to use my favorite kitchen appliance throughout the summer, though. When we give the grill a break, I… Continue

My Weight Watcher's journey has been a slow, but steady road to a thinner me. With a loss of 18 lbs so far, I'm well within a healthy BMI range and down to size 9 clothes - fairly small for my almost 6' height. I had originally set a goal of a total loss of 23 lbs, but I'm thinking if I change that goal to 33 lbs, I'll hit a BMI of 22. Perhaps I should just get to that first goal (5 lbs away!) and see how it goes from there.
Anyhow, I wanted to share with other insulin users out… Continue

This is my new favorite low-carb, low-calorie, yet filling soup. It's still cold and snowy in the Yukon, and a hot bowl of soup with salad for lunch or dinner always hits the spot!

I have some of these in the oven and they're on my 'breakfast favorites' list. I'm not big on breakfast but I know its important so I try to eat something, even if its only a little something, not long after I awaken. These are so easy to prepare and are quite portable so they're perfect for busy mornings.

In a recent thread Ron asks, "What kind of cuisine sends your sugars high?"
For me it's Chinese take out, which is a pain in the patootie because I love the stuff. But I really hate the next 8-10 HOURS of trying to get my bgl's under control!
So when I have the craving, I cook a quick and easy home made version. It's pretty simple to make in a hurry.
