I use a tricolored corn and quinoa blend that I get at the health food store. Many people have eaten this salad and everyone has liked it.

#617619 Frustrated About Incorrect, Out Of Date Posts

The first time I came here, I didn't realize how old some of the posts could be. Now whenever I see something that doesn't look right, I check the date. And if replying, I will add that it is an old post.

#615429 I Bottomed Out!

Posted by on 08 June 2010 - 03:09 PM

I'm a type 2 diabetic but spent most of my life as a hypoglycemic. I can remember fainting while waiting for some eggs to boil. I had just moved to a new house. Brought the eggs with me and had no other food in the house.

I can also remember as a diabetic, thinking I was fine and delaying my meal a bit because I felt I needed to do something, then passing out. I once passed out in the refrigerator. I knew to go there, but didn't know what to do once I go there. And when roused from a passed out state, I can be very combative and refuse to eat. So that's not good.

Currently am having the opposite problem and am having trouble getting my high blood sugar back down where it should be despite two meds and two kinds of insulin.

One thing I know if you suffer from hypoglycemia is that you need to be aware of reactive hypoglycemia. That means you can't take in too many carbs at once. If you do, your blood sugar could spike. If you are not diabetic, a spike for you isn't going to be huge. But the blood sugar will go up a bit, then plummet. That's when you feel really sick. So you want to avoid quickly digesting foods like rice, at least in large quantities. You can eat a small amount say, in a soup or along with a protein.

I used to carry things with me that I could eat in small bites throughout the day. One thing I liked was Panda red licorice but that has wheat in it, so no good for you. Another thing I might take was a piece of fruit leather or those little chewy fruit snacks that kids like. I would just eat a piece or two between meals. And I made my own trail mix. Nuts, seeds, coconut, perhaps a small amount of dried fruit, chocolate or carob chips. I kept this in covered candy dishes throughout the house and also kept a bag in my purse. Having this meant never an excuse to skip a meal.

#323413 Fruit Pizza

Posted by on 08 July 2007 - 09:04 PM

I've made a dessert pizza using a foccacia bread recipe but leaving out any savory seasonings like garlic or rosemary and adding a small amount of sugar. Then I sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over the top and bake it. You can put it in a pizza pan so it is round, or form it into a rectangle. I usually use the rectangle and cut it in strips to serve. I don't put any toppings on it to bake, other than the cinnamon and sugar.

After it is baked, I drizzle it with a thin vanilla icing. But you could also add any sort of cooked fruit pie filling, like apple or cherry. Just make sure it is gluten free or make your own, using corn starch to thicken. If you prefer fresh fruit, then spread a thin layer of icing on the pizza after it has baked, stick the fruit down and add another drizzle of icing or some thinned down jam/jelly.
