Can anyone recommend low carb recipes to take to a holiday dinner? (perhaps a vegetable dish and low carb sugarfree dessert?.). My mother-in-law has invited us (husband, daughter & son-in-law) to her place for Canadian Thanksgiving dinner (the first Sunday in October). She's serving turkey (which I can have although I'll skip the stuffing and the gravy.) I know she'll serve stuff I can't eat like potatoes and buns (although she also makes lovely green salads.) I've offered to bring a dish (or two) to share and I want to be sure it's something I can eat. She doesn't approve of my low carb eating - her older sister is also Type 2 and eats "everything" (her sister is 90, on meds and doesn't have a lot of years left to develop complications.) The last time I saw her, my mother-in-law told me that my diet is "extreme" (because I would not eat lemon chicken from a Chinese takeaway). I've told her that it's been approved by my doctor to lower my blood sugar (who told me to reduce carbs and wanted me change my diet before considering meds.). By then, I should have my followup hb1ac results. Suggestions welcome.
