I post my favorites; the ones I KNOW work and we love! The ones we use every week until my husband gets bored of them and I have to switch to something new for a week! All my recipes are from scratch and most are low-carb, and sugar-free!

On my recipes, you will see HG Lib and HG Strict. These labels are for those of us with Hypoglycemia, the recipes in here are tailor made for this diet. The Strict diet will help you shed pounds pretty quick, and the Lib diet will keep your Hypoglycemia under control without shedding pounds. SF stands for sugar free, GF stands for gluten free, LC stands for low carb šŸ™‚

Common Ingredients in my recipes:Ā 

For starters, I choose butter over most other oils, etc, both for it’s flavor and health. I love all things natural, as little processing as possible, and believe butter is the best of both of those things =) And really, who dosnt love the flavor of BUTTER?!

Spices and herbs: sea salt, fresh ground pepper,onion powder, garlic powder, Kikkoman Soy Sauce, Thyme, Parsley, Oregano, Basil, sage, Rosemary,

Sweeteners: Xylitol, Splenda, Stevia. Xylitol is my favorite as it has no aftertaste, is all natural and cooks and bakes really well. Sometimes I add Splenda for it’s cheap price in comparison to Xylitol, but I NEVER use only Splenda for a sweetener. I think my salad dressing is the only thing I put Stevia in, as I dislike the flavor of Stevia, but it is covered well by the balsamic vinegar =)

    Hi there Christine. I found your blog by visiting Karen’s blog at “Sew Many Ways” through her Friday Linky Party. I am so happy that I clicked on your blog! I was diagnosed a year ago with type 2 diabetes and was just recently diagnosed with fibro. So i see we have the fibro in common. I live in chronic pain 24/7 and I need to watch what I put in my mouth. As a diabetic, I cannot have sugars and carbs so I feel that i will find your recipes to be a benefit to my family and myself for our health. I have been trying to eat healthier for awhile now but it is hard for me as I am a very picky eater. I do not like any seafood except for grilled tilapia and I am very basic as to the foods I do eat. I seem to eat the same stuff over and over again and i find myself not wanting to eat sometimes just to avoid eating the same things. It will take me awhile to go through your blog but I have subscribed via email and I will bookmark it so I can continue to come back and read through it all. I know that this blog will probably help me in more ways then one. As for me aside from my health, I am a paper crafter. I scrapbook, make cards, alter art and do many types of crafts. If you would like to follow my blog as well, please go to http://www.jwscrapshack.blogspot.com or you can go back to Karen’s blog and find me there under “Jo’s Scrap Shack”. I look forward to getting to know you!!! I love meeting new friends. =)

    Hugs,
    Jo

      oh YAY! I love meeting new friends too!! šŸ™‚
      I will definitely go on over and check out your blog soon. If you have Type 2 diabetes, you will love my recipes, my hubby has Type 2 and notices such a difference when he eats only by my diet šŸ™‚ He is taking half the meds that he used to because of it, he’s also a super picky eater. For fibro, it totally helps with reducing inflammation and some of the fog we experience. But I agree, i get SO sick and tired of the same things too, that’s why I do so much research of new dishes and meals we can make. If you don’t mind soups, they are a FABULOUS meal for our diet!

      I am SO not an artsy person, my creativity comes out in the kitchen šŸ™‚ But just maybe you will inspire me to GET creative!! šŸ˜€

      Have a Blessed Easter new friend! <3

  3. So, so glad I found you. I have fibromyalgia, an under-active thyroid, and I’m hypoglycemia too !!!!! I’m looking forward to seeing what going without sugar and starch will do to help me with my weight. Thanks to you for your godly wisdom !!!!!!!!!!

    • Christine says:

      aww, thank you for the encouragement Kay!!
      I hope it helps you as much as it does us. Be warned though, when you first start the diet it’s pretty miserable for about a week!

      If you stick with it though, you will be SO glad you did!! Keep in touch and let me know how it goes šŸ™‚
