In the mean time, Ruth, how are you doing with the added nuts and oils in your food plan? You could be munching on walnuts or almonds, black olives or macadamias on and off all day and it wouldn't hardly budge your blood glucose, be great for your HDL's and could start packing on the pounds.
I have found that instead of steaming some of my veggies I like them better thrown in a pan with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil and some fresh diced garlic. Mmmmmm! Toss them around in that and plop in a little water (teaspoon or so), cover and turn off the heat. Serve with a sprinkle of salt and you have a feast! My husband says that my fresh green beans are just a vehicle to get more olive oil and garlic into my life.
