Starting My Low Carb Diet Again

Hey neighbors!!

Many of you already know that I am diabetic.  I was diagnosed about 6 years ago when I went in to the emergency room due to back pain.  They took care of the pain and let me know that I was diabetic.  They placed me on Metformin and told me to start watching my carbs and to start exercising, which I did well for about three years.  Then I slowly started letting things go.  The exercise slowed down, I started allowing more little treats, CARBS, into my diet.  I had stopped Metformin after the first month and still have not gone back on it, but I notice my numbers are climbing again.  So, I am going to start eating strict again and begin walking and at least over winter doing light exercise and walking on our treadmill.  I get bored easily on the treadmill, so I am going to store a bunch of music and short video clips on my iPod and iPad, so I have something to distract me.

I have already started the lower carb, and I thought I would share some of what I am doing here.  I am doing this to give me some accountability, encouragement and hopefully to encourage someone else.


So, here is the first "recipe" I am sharing.  I made a chicken, bacon, ranch wrap.  We started with a low carb Lavash.  I cooked up three strips of bacon.  (Next time I will cook more and refrigerate it for later.) I had some skinless, chicken breast left over from a previous meal, so I chopped this up and added it to the wrap.  Next I added some shredded cheddar cheese, some ranch, some shredded lettuce, and a few pieces of tomato.  I am sharing pics, and please realize, that I shared some of it.  It was really good, and my husband wants me to make him one next time too.







If any of you have good ideas for low carb meals, desserts, or beverages please feel free to share them in the comments.
