    It's good you are testing things out. A pain in the proverbial as well as fingers but the further along the road you get the less you will need to test as you will know what its ok bs-wise to eat. Result for brekky :)

    Ooo me again ,,,, I sometimes make a little pasta salad now .. More salad than pasta ... My summer salad ...
    You may already know that if you wash the cooked pasta in cold water you reduce all the starch ..etc ...
    Eat cold or reheat in your choice of sauce ...
    I am not really a pasta fan ,,but layered in a summer salad ... With layers of corn (cooked from frozen) grated carrot , cucumber , salad leaves , tomatoes , topped with grated cheese and a bit of Mayo ... I like ...

    Blood glucose today is 5.1
    So far today I've just had breakfast of 6 slices of toast and a mug of coffee. Not much but it's a good start to the day.

    SIX slices of toast? Good Lord, I'd be in the high teens after that. At least.

    Oh how I miss toast!


    I've eaten a cheese omelette with tomatoes and onions. Too hot to eat much.
