Why low-carb and sugar free diet? (Hypoglycemia/ Carb Intolerant Diet)

About the HG diet- sugar free, low carb and mostly gluten free! It is totally do-able and so yummy! 🙂

My recipes are all low-carb and sugar free for a reason!! I have Hypoglycemia and my husband has type 2 diabetes.

This picture is one of our meals, and typically what we eat. protein and lots of vegetables! The picture shows Buttery Mushrooms recipe  and Homemade Burger recipe(click for recipes) All healthy AND delicious!! We don’t NEED potatoes, rice and pasta to feel satisfied and full! (I make whole wheat bread, not the white, which is a carb, but we only eat at maximum 3 slices a day, and no more than 2 at a time.)

Low carb and low Glycemic diets are known to lower inflammation! As someone with Fibromyalgia, I can tell you right now that this diet is WORTH it!!!
Here is a link for some information on why!

The HOW of this diet is really all about substituting vegetables for the carbs in your diet. My recipes that I post here are all easy, healthy alternatives. My day of meals usually consists of this:

Breakfast: frittata, omelet, protein shake or fried egg with 1 piece of whole wheat sugar free sourdough bread.

Lunch: Salad with boiled egg, leftover steak or other meat from the night before, and a piece of bread if I didn’t have one for breakfast.

Supper: meat dish, steamed vegetables or salad, and a fried or baked vegetable dish with a piece of bread.

Snacks: Fruit with sugar-free whipped cream, and/or steamed milk with flavor and/or handful of nuts. If I didn’t have a frittata, or fruit with my breakfast I make sure to get it in my evening or afternoon snack. I never feel hungry and when I do, I have a little Ziploc baggie in my purse with almonds in it. These things keep me from snacking on unhealthy foods like chocolate, chips and sugar filled ice cream =)

On that note, stay tuned for my sugar-free ice cream recipe! I post recipes regularly!
