    A New Start got a reaction from Whittlet2 in Do you follow a Food Plan?   
    Luckily I'm controlled by diet and Metformin.  (I'm what used to be considered a "borderline" diabetic, good sugars but a mildly elevated A1C.)  As for picky eaters - I have a 3 year old who prefers as many carbs as possible, and a husband who feels the same way.  Neither cares for veggies or fruit.  Thank god my 19-month-old is a walking trash compactor and eats everything.  Never seen a kid eat meatloaf as fast as my son does!

    I love stir-fry, crock pots, even my old George Foreman grill.  Meat roll-ups, romaine leaves instead of taco shells, I've even found a super low-carb tortilla for fajitas and quesadillas.  Beef, black bean soup, chili, pulled pork or chicken all make it on my favorites list.  I'm rapidly approaching the "two choices" method for dinner - take it or leave it, I'm tired of making everyone a separate dinner because they don't want what I cooked.  I never think of hard-cooked eggs, thanks for the reminder!  I used to make chicken salad, egg salad, and tuna salad in 50-pound batches for work, that should all be OK on top of mixed greens or as vegetable dips, right?

    Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it Kelly!

    Silicone mats - the "name" brand is Silpat, but there are a few others.  I have a Silpat somewhere in the toolbox I used as a culinary student.  That thing saved my butt when we made grated cheese crisps and pulled sugar designs!

    Hey Sure Michele,
     
    My Cavegirlcancook.com has some recipes on it.  I am lucky now that it is just my hubby and i have to cook for and he will eat anything.  But I totally understand you when it ocmes to cooking for your family.   Picky eaters I never had to deal with, noone cooking, i so have had to deal with that, lol.  Especially when you have to work, then come home and cook, grrrrrr..  lol.
     
    I am hypoglycemic, so I have to eat or I will get really ill.  I am not a sugar fan at all, also makes me ill.   I am a protein girl all the way, so the Paleo is a breeze for me.  Why I can tolerate alcohol is beyond me.  WHICH, btw, is a no no now as I am on a huge exercise kick.
     
    SOOOO,   ( I am not a DR.), but do you take insulin or no?   Is yours mostly controlled by what you eat?   I do check my insulin levels myself here and there, so do you?   Give me an idea so I know.
     
    Now, I love grilling some meats, throwing on veggies.  Now for the family, I added rice or potatoes.  I am not a fan, so that was easy for me.   BBQ meats is the best or smoking.  We have a Traeger smoker/ grill that I love....    Crockpots are awesome, so many recipes out there.  I do a roast (i think its on my site), that is beef , soy sauce, water, beef stock that is to die for, I make tacos out of it, you name it.   
     
    So you mention picky eaters???, like, you make something and they turn their noses up at it??  Uh, whatever is on the table in my house, is what they get, they don't like it, too bad.  Sorry, that is how I felt.  Then they cook for themselves.  Of course, I always wanted to make my family happy so i cooked a lot of what they wanted, but there were times I did not like what I cooked either, like , I am not a fan of stir frys back then, now I LOVE them, but I would just separate my food and I was fine.  I know, I am weird.  Our favorite lunch now is I take chicken thighs, fry them up on the griddle, throw on veggies and teriyaki sauce or soy sauce and lunch, yum.   Low sugar/Low sodium kind.
     
    I love meat rollups, ham, turkey, cheese, delish.  String cheese, low sugar jerky, Natural Peanut butter on celery, boiled eggs, bacon, yes bacon, turkey breast I like cold rather than chicken.  
     
    Does this help?   throw anything my way.    HUgs  Kelly
