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!

  • Shakshuka a low carb egg dish

    On one of the groups I belong to on Facebook – a member had posted a link for a low carb egg dish called Shakshuka.  It reminds me of huevos rancheros – except  I’ve never made that before at home.  I’ve only ever eaten that when I was in San Diego (and it was delicious but high in carbs due the corn tortillas that the eggs are served on).

    This dish is very popular in Israel (it originates from Algeria and Tunisia) – and if you click on this link – it will describe abit more of the history  – as well as the recipe that I followed to make my tasty “brunch” that I had about an hour ago (yuppe;s – this blog is HOT off the press – sort of like a news breaking story … NOT).  Seriously though, I had been very busy since waking up this morning and only had a coffee to tide me through until I got the hankering to have something to eat.  I know – not good diabetic or not diabetic – and as you will tell by my blood sugar picture in the link below).  I went up abit past my happy point that I like to be at – but corrected it while I prepared the dish – and bolused with insulin accordingly for the carbs in my homemade flax seed bread.

    So check out the step by step pictures at this link – and perhaps you’ll want to give this a go yourself.  One thing, I could have halved the amount of chipotle pepper I put in my version of the recipe – but if you like it HOT – then you’d love this version.  The original recipe is for 6-8 people – and I just “winged” it with making it with 2 eggs – but still it was VERY good.
