This subject is complicated at the very least, but it's one well worth looking into if you find that your levels are just not manageable. Eating lower glycemic foods, even carbohydrates, is a great way to have your cake and eat it too. (so to speak anyway) I have a cook book that outlines some of the lower indexed foods, but I have found this website "GI News" to be of great help in understanding how to use the lower indexed foods. I found this particular issue of the blog to be very helpful with some recipes in it that I thought you all might like to try.


The recipes are about half way through the blog, but there are some yummy things in there. Eating low carb is more than just cutting out sugar. It's choosing your ingredients smartly to give you an overall healthy food that won't spike your levels.

I have been on the GI Diet for about three years. Basically I eat whatever I desire along with what my spouse eats. You just have to learn to identify those foods with low GI's. This is where I started with the Diet. http://www.glycemicindex.com/ Also I want to say I am taking five medications being used to control the additional complications from/with Type 2. They cause weight gain in me. With the GI Diet I am able to maintain my weight and am slowly losing weight. I have three ruptured disc in my lower back with a pinched nerve to my lower body. Exercise is out of the question. I do walk once a week. Enjoy

I think I am going to try the Applesauce oat bran muffins with pinoli. That sounds yummy and if it works out, I will work out the nutritional values of how I make it and share it in the recipe section.

So it is okay to share, in the Recipes section…recipes you got elsewhere? They do not have to be original creations?

If you are sharing something it is encouraged to share where you got it from if it's not something you have made yourself. But you will find that the exact same recipes are all over the internet now. I run into them all the time.

The only thing you want to make sure is that you have some of the nutritional values of a recipe.
