  8. Yesterday:
    Brunch: Burgen toast with cashew butter - like peanut butter but higher carb/higher priced. Nice to try though.
    Dinner: green bean, mushroom and peanut curry, poppadoms and spicy soya yogurt dip

    Today:
    Brunch: Burgen toast with cashew butter
    Dinner: leftover curry, pudding made from creamed cashews, yogurt, splenda and lime (like a key lime pie without the crust)

    we have numerous generations of diabetics in my family, but I am the only one who low carbs and controls my diabetes with diet, so many have poor BG control and complications :( wish they would try to control their diet but they think they can eat anything and then medicate for it :banghead:
