Hi. I was diagnosed as prediabetic 3 weeks ago and am trying to make some major dietary and exercise changes to avoid getting full-blown diabetes. I'm on a steep learning curve right now, but I'm especially interested in learning how I can add more protein that is NOT meat into my diet. I'm already pretty sick of all the meat but it clearly does help keep my sugar down. I just started adding protein powder this morning to oatmeal and a cup of skim milk. Does anyone else use protein powder (and can suggest good ones), as well as easy-to-carry protein foods that I can carry with me in my purse or keep in the car? I'm also missing my pasta bigtime. Saying that I can have 1/3 cup of pasta to stay within my meal carb count is pretty lame—that is definitely going to just make me want a lot more. Aren't there ANY pastas that are NOT high-carb? Thanks in advance for your advice.
