CCCF = Carb Conscience Comfort Food
After being diagnosed Type ONE Diabetic in 2022, most comfort food was gone after blood sugar levels monitoring became an all day//everyday lifestyle.
Ingredients and food has been my constant lifestyle for a long time. I ADAPT & EVOLVE.
My goal is to not have to take a lot of insulin to compensate the high Carb intake. Being a self-diagnosed Carb Addict, portion control is not easy… Progress is being made:)

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.
Preparing my own food is the goal. Finding adventure is the goal. Multiple goals are the goal. Having goals are the goal, also.
My blogings are not to tell you how to do, but to try and inspire to find your own adventure. To choose a different path. Try something risky. And be smart about your well-being.
This update is common, in hopeful understanding.
Recipes are mearly guidelines. I was never a speller. Does it really matter in the hat madder?

A Lasagna with mass character and vast flavorfulness is here:)
Marinara was combined with Salsa, Parsley, Lentils, Ⓥ Crumbles and Rice to be simmered (covered for 20-25 minutes prior to construction of the Lasagna fabrication.
Sauce layered the bottom of my cooking dish with delicious Roasted Corn before the (oven-ready) Lasagna Noodles laid the foundation of greatness.
The layers continue…
Sauce, Roasted Corn, Jalapeño, Daiya, and Noodles – repeat.
As personal layers of climates in the last few years – midwest winters, Sonoran Desert summers, midwestern frozen winters, optimism is had and ongoing. Stay healthy:)
