As part of my attempts to cut carbs and amp up on protein on my new hypoglycemic diet (it’s working really well to control my blood sugar for 6-7 hours at a time!) and as part of my wellness coaching, I’m trying a couple of new recipes over the next few weeks. So, I tried making teriyaki tofu (I cheated and used a pre-made sauce from the asian market) and roasted brussels sprouts.
The verdict: Great! It was easy to make with the pre-made sauce and it tasted great! Another bonus: For $2.50, I got two servings, which is much cheaper than meat. This will definitely become a normal part of my diet. My only caution here is that teriyaki sauce is loaded with sugar, so use it sparingly.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts
The verdict: Meh. I had these at a bar once and they were crunchy. Mine were not. I think I’ll like them a lot more if I can figure out how to make them crunchy.
The Bush’s Baked Beans were my treat, but I think they spiked my blood sugar a lot. I had forgotten how sweet they are! And there’s too much “brown” on my plate here.
