Hi Michael,
Salt free is hard enough but when I have to watch for Glutten also...now that is a problem. My husband has to stay off of both and I am a diabetic..guess we should just go out and find nuts and berries..LOL

May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

Now, now, Dove...nuts and berries aren't all that bad.
Since you are diabetic, potatoes and carrots are probably out, as well as oranges, apples and grapes.
Can you eat rice, beans or dairy? Tell me what you CAN eat, I will will come up with some good recipes for you.
I had a friend whose diabetes was very hard to control (35 yrs ago). He couldn't eat bread, because the starch turned to sugar.

We get by with a little help from our friends

in search of goodweed..... hello goodweed.

michael, there is a member here named goodweed who is very knowledgeable about diet, especially with diabetics.
you may want to send a private message to him on this subject, as he is very helpful.
just don't expect a short answer...
(just teasing, gw)

btw, have you noticed that the more you get away from using salt, the more you can taste the tiniest bit of salt in everything?

Yes I have. The same is true with sugar. I was on Atkins diet a number of years ago for about 6 months. I am also socked at the time factor. I have only been not eating salted things for a number of weeks, however things seem to taste salty to me now.
