rachinator, As an alternative to veggies seasoned with butter and salt, I like to make mushroom sauce with mushrooms, chicken broth, a little nutmeg and heavy cream to thicken it some. (Milk is high in carbs, so I use heavy cream instead.) I use less chicken broth and cook it down kind of thick to pour over veggies. It is also good spread over fish and baked. I use more chicken broth when I want to make a soup, and add whatever cooked veggies I want.

Here's a tip... when you experiment, as in making mushroom sauce, be sure to measure everything and write it down as you go along. That way, if you come up with something great, you will be able to duplicate it from then on.

Don't know if you are interested, but here is a link for desserts that don't call for any flour.

Or, she could use vegetable broth also.

Woops, I forgot about the no chicken thing. Should be good with vegetable broth, too. Thanks, watcher.

Suggestion - last night I had poached salmon with a creamy avocado dip - it was YUMMY! As a pescatarian, this would be ideal for you, if you like avocados. (All sorts of dip recipes around - I just bash my avocado flesh up with some cream and cream cheese, and sprinkle in some grated parmesan for flavour.) The flavours go great with the fish, and it makes a delish filling dinner.

I have just read through this thread for the first time. I can understand the choices that people make because they don't like the way our food industry treats the animals that are mass produced for the grocery store chains.

We feel the same way and that is the major reason why we raise some of our own food and the rest of it we buy from local farmers who sell humanly raised pastured animals. But it concerned me when you said that you only eat fish. You should read this article by the Harvard School of Public Health. While fish is a healthy and important part of our diet, eating too much of the wrong kind can be very bad for you. The heavy metals that collect in fish from the contamination in our environment can cause health problems for you and birth defects in unborn children.

Please read this article. There are other responsible choices that can be made, you just need to do a little research and look around in your area for responsible farmers who can supply your needs.

I know that others have already stated similar, but...

My mother's an insulin dependent diabetic. On occasion she has taken her insulin, intending to eat, then got sidetracked with something on television and not eaten... We've found her too many times nearly unconscious and have had to pour orange juice in her to get her blood sugar to jump up quickly. Oranges will increase your blood sugar. Period.

Now, does that mean you can't eat oranges anymore? I don't think so. I think it means you can eat a couple segments of an orange or maybe a squeeze of a couple segments into a glass of bubbly water, etc. Limited, small amounts. My mother's blood sugar is not affected much when she adds a few bits of orange to something like beef & broccoli stir-fry, for example. Try using oranges more as you would a seasoning or flavoring.

Keep looking around. You'll find TONS of wonderful food ideas here and on many other low-carb blogs. Congratulations on how far you've come and best wishes on continued success!
