Pretzels are truly amazing. Pretzel Buns are what any good sandwich deserves. Unfortunately, Type 1 Diabetes (and Type 2) does not welcome the Carbs involved with pretzel greatness. Pretzilla offers Dinner Rolls or lower Carb ‘Buns’. AND
…It’s game time:)
Spontaneous, Simple and Ⓥegan, this sandwich hit the spot thrice.
Two new Ⓥegan products were utilized and enjoyed for today’s lunch:)
The Ⓥegan ‘cheese’ doesn’t melt , as doesn’t most Ⓥegan ‘cheese, the way I wish it would. Daiya ‘cheese’ melts a little better. These LOW CARB Tortillas are amazing:) Small, but delicious and seemingly versatile, as they need to be.

After a near death DKA episode, ER visit, ICU stay – resulting in a Type One Diabetes diagnosis, last year, my food consumption lifestyle became a little more strict.
Carbohydrates are my friend, but when not monitored or prepared for, they are my newest enemy.
My new concept is CCCF = Carb Conscience Comfort Food 🙂

Probably the most difficult thing about being diagnosed with Type One Diabetes, for me, is having to cut out a lot of my favorite foods from my diet. Monitoring Carb intake isn’t hard – it takes discipline and low carb food.
My goal is Not to take insulin if I don’t have to. The deciding factor is food consumed and the carbs included. Vegetables usually have moderate to extreme Carbs. Luckily, not all.
I tend to make exceptions for higher Carb foods that are high in Fiber and/or Protein. Also, I am not perfect.
I found this Pasta! It is Pasta Zero by Nasoya. It’s Vegan, gluten free, low Carb and Calories. For the first time since being diagnosed Diabetic, I enjoyed guiltless Spaghetti. It was delicious and I give it two thumbs up without the insulin:)
Since being a young child I remember how special and comforting Pizza has been and my addiction to this wonderful food. The older I become, the less Pizza I can consume. Chicago style deep dish pizza is one of my favorite styles of Pizza to eat. That style has always been a occasional enjoyment because of its higher price. Regular deep dish or pan Pizza has been, in my eyes, the most economical for amount of Pizza density.
Since, checking my blood sugar 40-50 times a day with my Freestyle Libre 2 sensor, I’ve noticed how much Pizza and its large amounts of delicious Carbs bring havoc to my glucose levels. It’s unfortunate, but my Pizza addiction evolves, significantly, this year.
Store bought (frozen to be cooked) pizza is no longer good for me unless I want to inject extra insulin, being type ONE Diabetic. My goal is not to inject insulin, however, my body isn’t that simple.
Here’s my latest Pizza cheat. These low carb Tortillas aren’t very low carb, but the Fiber excuses the carbs – for the most part. The Egg White “wraps” along with the Mozzarella Cheese aren’t Vegan, but I do not see Veganism offering the delicious food in a low carb state as much as the Vegetarian food.
The Aldi low carb tortillas were 19 g carbs, 4 g protein and 15 g FIBER… Still jumping my blood sugar levels, just not as much as any other regular Pizza.
