The Roller Coaster Ride of Diabetes! Whoo! Whoo!

I am a Type 1 diabetic diagnosed back in the early 60's as a child.  I am living in Montreal, Canada and enjoy scribbling about diabetes from time to time. I’ve had my ups / downs just like any person would experience with going through life - diabetic or not.  My motto in life?  Diabetes does not control me – I control it!! 

You can find more posts/discussions at my Facebook page called "The Roller Coaster Ride of Diabetes" and also on Twitter under the name of FatCatAnna.  Feel free to follow me at both places or send me a private message!

  • Crisp bread pizza - low in carbs / fat

    Most of us love pizza - I know I do.  The thing is, it's high in carbs along with fat that it's something I don't eat too much of except when we go home to Ottawa and pay a call in at KS Restaurant on Albion/Bank (we've been going there for over 30 years).  They make a thick airy crispy crust along with loads of cheese and other fresh ingredients.

    Seeing as it's a 2 hour drive to get there and I was feeling hungry (well - it was lunch time).  I decided to go and make up a grilled cheese sandwich.  Big problem - only bread I had available was in freezer, still not defrosted for this weeks lunches (I make my own bread once a week). So, scrounge thru' the crisp bread area of the cupboards and viola - some Wasa Crispbread (the fibre rye one is really good).  I put a few slices of Cabot's Pepper Jack cheese that I'd picked up in Vermont a few weeks ago with some roasted red peppers on top (marinated in olive oil, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper).  Into a 550F preheated broiler for about 3-4 minutes - and I have to be honest - this was really good!  The crisp bread had sucked up some of the oils from the roasted red peppers - so was very tasty compared to it's ususal dry taste (Ryvita is better crispbread - but I had a coupon for the Wasa). 

    So, if you are looking for a fast little meal - and are craving pizza without all the carbs/fat - go this route.  For 3 slices of the crispbread - it's only 22 g of carb and 7 g of fibre.  It won't spike up your BG's like a regular pizza will do and if you like a thin crust pizza - then go for it. My BG at the time of eating was 4.0 mmol/l and I've remained steady over the past few hours - so that's "proof of the pudding"!

    Let me know how it tastes - and what extra's you may put on that I haven't thought of!
