Hello everyone -
 
I just found a great food that is very nutritious and healthy: Snow Ear Fungus
 
It is served as a desert in China, high protein & high fiber, and zero fat or other bad things.
 
Here is a link to see what it is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tremella_fuciformis
 
I cooked some last week (with water only), had a bowl in the morning with 2 drops of honey (yes). After that, I had my routine 2 slices of light style bread and almond paste. My blood sugar only went to 108 instead of 135 when I ate half broiled egg in the morning.
 
Great and want to share with everybody. It tastes like jelly!! not bad at all.

Mip, I have to hand it to you.  The name of this food would be enough to close the door on this one.  Thank you for posting this because we do need reminders to try other kinds of food.  tongue    ( shocked )  Ok, all you others, please post how this affects your blood sugar.  I'm not sure if I can find this here.

You can find it probably at any Chinese supermarket.

I am tired of eating half egg in the morning. I need something different that can control or slow down the blood sugar spike after breakfast.

I think 108 at 1 hour after breakfast is a very good number. I used to see 150 if I am not careful about what I eat.

My number usually comes down to low 90 at 2 hours. I will test to see if it is the same with this new food.

Well, I am originally from China. :) So rice was very big in my diet before. And noodles.

I cut out noodles entirely and cut rice portion in half. Snow ear fungus used to be a desert after dinner when I was a kid. Now I just found a good use of it again, without table sugar.

I'd like to call it a 'mushroom', snow ear mushroom would be easier for me to eat.  Even though I know that mushrooms are fungi, the word just turned me off.  (I guess it's like truffles; if we called them fungi as they really are, then they'd lose their value in my opinion.)  But it's great to find something that we can eat that won't bother the blood sugar!  Thank you for telling us about them.  :-)  Mip, as a substitute for noodles, you could use a vegetable peeler and peel off long strands of zucchini squash (and even use the green skin if you like).  They fry up very quickly in a pan and you can use them as "noodles" in most any dish.  This summer I showed my cousin how to do this and we ate zucchini noodles with pesto sauce and another time with sauteed onion slivers and a small sliced up tomato in some olive oil.  She added some oregano and basil and it was very tasty.
