More low carb meals in my future! H-E-L-P!

Well, lately my blood sugar has become a real issue. It's either way too high or way too low and its really starting to chap my buns! So, in an effort to get better control of it, I'm eating a much lower carb diet. This isn't fun, folks! But if it has to be, it has to be. I don't want to lose limbs or eyesight (much less my life) and I'd like to live to see the grandchildren I hope to have someday so if low carb, more exercise, and more or different medications are what it's going to take, so be it.

One thing I really dislike about low carb eating is the cost of it. It ain't cheap to eat lean meats, fish, and good vegetables. The cheaper foods like rice, potatoes, and pasta are going to be rare treats for me.

Another thing I dislike is that I get bored with it and fairly quickly. I can eat only so much baked chicken and fish! I'm going to get back to scouring the Internet looking for low carb recipes so if you have a favorite or two or ten, please share with me.

The next menu I post will be a little different, I'm sure. We'll still have rice and other higher carb foods but even though I prepare them, I won't eat much, if any, of them.

So, here's to lower blood sugar and better health in general!

Hi, we've had good experiences buying bulk meats at Costco, cutting it up and freezing it or grinding it into burgers ourselves. Even their cheapest meat makes nice burgers, usually at $2 or less a pound.

Unfortunately, the closest Costco is about 2 hours from me. I have a sister who lives in that area and when I visit her we go to Costco but with gas being almost $4 a gallon I can't run over there every month, much less every week. However, I might be able to take a trip there every couple of months to stock up on certain items. Thanks for the suggestion. :)
