Happy New Year Tomatoes

I’m hopeful for an outstanding and prosperous 2023. We’ve all had some interesting and challenging last couple of years.

Roasted Tomatoes were made and thoroughly enjoyed.

Simple, versatile and delicious.

I sliced the Tomatoes and placed on parchment paper to be seasoned and topped with Ⓥ Parmesan ‘Cheese’ or regular Parmesan Cheese – depending on diet and preference:)

Cheers to a new year!

Lower Carb Pizza Cheat

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.
