msmofet, and carb will raise your blood glucose. What you need to do is start with say 1/4 cup wait 2 hours test your bg's if it's under 140 your doing great and then try 1/2 c. and see what your reading is.This lets you gauge how much you can eat.People think sugar, honey, is the only carb that gets us. Not so Corn,potatoes, rice, are the culprets as well.All foods are healthy if eaten in moderation.These foods have carbs not so much sugar but we all know that,Just test, it will teach you to know your body better than anyone even a doctor!!

Still rying to decide whats for dinner. Tacos or boneless/skinless chicken breast and broccoli sauted in olive oil and fresh garlic next to or over cooked bowtie pasta. chicken seems to be pulling ahead but 1 daughter still hasn't voted.

it contained almonds, raisins which I wished I had left out, new spring green red onion, asparagus, cooked egg, bacon, the dressing is raspberry vinaigrette:

1/4 cup home canned raspberry sauce AKA liquid gold
scant 1/4 cup vinegar
1 T. sugar
s&p
garlic powder or fresh
mustard, I used about 1/2 t. dried hot powder
