I'm working on a list of non-meat protein sources that are not too high in saturated fat or carbs. So far I have:
tempeh and tofu
nuts, especially almonds and walnuts
nut butters such as lower sat fat and zero or low sugar peanut, almond and soy nut butter
seeds especially pumpkin and sunflower
reduced fat cheeses
fat free yogurt
beans (the only ones I can have are black soybeans)
some veggies: sun dried tomatoes spinach, brussels sprouts and broccoli.
egg whites and non-shell, zero cholesterol egg blends such as Egg Beaters (Thanks, Kathy.)
If anyone can add any more low saturated fat and very low carb sources for non-meat protein, please let me know. Thanks.
Jenn, I'm rooting for you to have good blood test results. Let us know how it went.
Libby, congrats on a great Tuesday report. So sorry to learn you are stuck with your doctor. I am rooting for you to be able to "soften him up" a little. Maybe he'd be willing to let you do partial control through diet and reduce your meds. I've heard and read that in the USA most doctors are taught mainly what tests to order, how to diagnose, and what meds to prescribe under the assumption that the majority of patients don't have the self-discipline to do self-help. Your breakfast sounds both healthful and yummy. Best wishes on your quilt ideas and enjoy your retreat! Kudos on your weight going back down. Enjoy the treadmill.
Jenai, I sometimes get mixed up between who said what. Good thing I double-checked my post yeaterday because I had done it again.
Those low cholesterol articles are pretty basic things, but I hope you are rewarded with some useful info for checking them out. I'm glad you enjoyed your "fried ice cream." What is the main ingredient in it? I skidded by with normal blood sugar after having eating a few real store-bought snack cakes over the past three months. LOL on the wise daughter.
