Like "Great question Sonya! I will ask one of my own: is there something which says that one HAS to eat one's carbs in the form of grain? Grains are recommended by the gov't nutrition pyramid as a good source of carbohydrates but I have successfully been off all grains, (wheat, corn, rice, soybeans and flours from them) for over a year now without ill effect, and I am doing very well, diabetes wise. Any carbs I get are from the non-starchy veggies (no potatoes, corn, peas and mimimal carrots) and most berries, like strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and razpberries. I have found that by removing grains from my meal plan and substituting high protein for them I have been able to manage my Blood Glucose (BG) levels in the normal range, and lose 65 lbs of weight in the past year. For People with Diabetes (PWDs) perhaps we ought to re-think our reliance on even whole grain carbohydrates, especially those who are gluten intolerant or celiac. I do eat quinoa ("Keen WAH") on occasion since it has a great deal of protein in it. Thanks for your question, Sonya! It seemed to get a lot of us thinking! And that's ALWAYS good! "
