You hit on something very important: cooking has saved me. I make zucchini noodles w/meat sauce, curry sauce, or cheese sauce. I also make low carb flat bread for all kinds of sandwiches, & I just started making low carb Jamaican meat pies. Home made soups & marinated salads w/ all kinds of herbed dressings. As a pre-D who rarely eats out, I would be miserable about my diet if I did not cook.
