Being a Type II Diabetic for 5 years I have had my ups and downs and that's not just in my sugar levels! Everybody always says that you have to make it a lifestyle and not a diet....well I got so sick of hearing that from people who were born with great genes, skinny, and no medical problems! So, I decided to do my research and boy have I done my research!! I have come up with some recipes and tricks to help diabetics or those just wanting to cut carbs.
I will randomly post recipes that I have came up with on my own that have been tested, changed, and retested. Today's recipe will be what I had for breakfast this morning. I hope you all look for them and enjoy them!!!
1 TBSP of frozen chopped onions (4 calories / 1 carb)
1 TBSP of frozen chopped green peppers (2 calories / .43 carbs)
6 TBSP of Eggbeaters WHITES (50 calories / 0 carbs)
2 links of Brown n Serve sausage ( 90 calories / 1 carb)
Lightly spray a frying pan with non-stick spray. (0 calories / 0 carbs)
Chop the sausage links into very small bite size pieces and toss into the hot pan along with the onions and green peppers. Cook until tender and lightly browned. Pour the Eggbeaters into the pan and mix with the other ingredients. Stir until almost throughly cooked then spread the mixture evenly in the pan and place a lid on the pan. Cooked until firm and enjoy!!!
A grand total of 146 Calories and 2.43 Carbs so you can add more eggs if you want to increase your calorie intake to ward off hunger before lunch...protein will do that for you!
AGAIN....because the ingredients are ALL convenient items this will cook and be ready to eat within minutes!! You know that if you had to chop the onions and green peppers on a busy crazy morning you wouldn't do it....I know that I didn't!! PLUS...the frozen items last longer than the fresh and at a TBSP at a time they will last you quite awhile for a $1.29 bag!!
Be Strong and Be Blessed!

I make something very similar. This has less to do with dieting but if your skillet is a non-stick or caphalon kind, it's not good to spray them with the non-stick spray. It ruins the finish off them long term. So I either throw a tid bit of Healthy Choice butter or olive oil, which would add calories but not much if you keep it really small.
As far as people saying it is a lifestyle change, it is true. And this is coming from someone overwieght who's mother and aunt both had gastric bypass surgery so skinny is definitely not in my genes!
My mom is a perfect example of why it needs to be a lifestyle change. She had her stomach "stapled" about 30 years ago and is just as heavy now as she was then. She stayed skinny for about 10 to 15 years but then ate horribly and has gained it all back. My aunt had the newer procedure about 5 years ago and she eats small portions and has really made a change in her eating and has stayed at a healthy weight.
I'll definitely be looking for more of your recipes!

Canned coconut milk vs cartoned coconut milk
Since my initial reply I did try cartoned one (curiosity). While I think different brands would taste slightly differently, it does not really taste like coconut milk. If you look at the calorie count ...
