John: Could you please tell me more about how this diabeticconnect recipes works? I have lots of great recipes but didn't know that I should not put it into the conversations of Diabetes Connect, but into a separate recipe section. Where do I go, what do I do, do I have to sign up separately from Diabetes Connect, what do I have to put with the recipes to have them qualify for the recipes section, how often is there winners for their recipes, what categories are there? In other words, please tell all about it. Thanks.

Sounds delicious…will definitely try the recipe. Rib eye steaks are one of our favorite meals. Congrats on your win. My favorite, easy to do low carb breakfast recipe is as follows: In a cereal bowl, pour a little coating of olive oil, break 2 eggs on top, and add left overs from last night's dinner, or pieces of bacon, ham, or prosciutto, grated cheese, cut-up olives, and a topper of heavy cream. Nuke 2 to 21/2 minutes at half power, grind pepper on top and eat. The big advantage is that it fills you up quickly and since it's all protein and fat, you're not anxious/hungry for lunch as you would be if you skipped breakfast or had carbs (cereal, toasts, etc). You'll be happy to have a salad for lunch.

Congrats my friend! Before ya go shopping at Walgreens, check out the website for some awesome transaction tips on combining rewards with coupons with sale ads. If you space out your trips, you can probably get a good $300+ worth of product for that $100.

Thanks, John, for sponsoring the contest and thanks to all members for contributing to the recipes. You guys are all fantastic!!!

Thanks, Ray, I will sign up on their website, too. Walgreens also has great prices on their over-the-counter meds. compared to the name brand meds. My mom gets all her blood testing supplies there, also.
