Believe it or not, you can use cauliflower to make a really good rice substitute...use a blender on some raw (fresh) cauliflower until it gets into rice sized bits. Then put in a dish with a little water, cover and microwave for a couple of minutes. Took me a bit of practice to get it the right texture but it works really well with curry, chilli etc - I served it to my family with some curry dolloped over it and most of them didnt even notice they werent eating white rice. Crazy, but true!

I also recommend the HungryGirl website. They are not a low-carb website, but they do offer good meal swaps and ideas.

I'm a diabetic too, and symphasize with you, hun.

Jes' sayin'. . .

I found out this week that I am pre-diabetic and had to meet with a dietitian on Friday.
I'm a bit confused now about the low-carbing because she warned me to also limit animal fats- because those can give me insulin spikes, too.
Is it different as someone that is pre-diabetic than someone on insulin? (I have started taking metformin). I realize this isn't the health board but thought someone might have some input?
