1 small biscuit: 100 calories, 8 grams of Fat, 1 Net Carb & 3.5 grams of Protein

1/4 cup blanched almond flour (I use Bob's Red Mill)
2 tbsp coconut flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup heavy cream (or pure sour cream, I use sour cream now)
1 egg, cold
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated (around 1 oz)
2 tbsp butter, softened (I used salted)

**Finish with Salted butter & dried or fresh parsley  

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  In a medium bowl, mix dry ingredients. Then add remaining ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon or spatula until well blended.  Use scoop to scoop out dough onto un-greased cookie sheet lined with parchment paper .  Space 2-3 inches a part. Bake for 13-15 minutes for small biscuits and 20 minutes for medium biscuits.  Once out of oven, smear a bit of salted butter and sprinkle with a little parsley. Best served warm.

I made these without the Parmesan Cheese last night, just added a little more of each of the flours to make up the difference. They were wonderful! 

PS Yall better make these!
I bought the coconut and almond stuff just for these and it's worth every penny, I promise.

Diabetes, Low Carb, Atkins and Wheat Belly

The only thing that has ever helped me control diabetes, 
is eating and living the low carb way of life. 
THANK YOU Dr. Atkins!
My doctor is always amazed at my blood work each 3 months I go.
I try to keep my carbs at the Atkins induction rate, 
about 20-30 net carbs a day.
I'm now cutting back on fats too. 
The wheat belly book is a great example 
of why we should not eat wheat or grains or sugar.
It states in the book:
"Wheat is the tobacco to this generation."
It's so true. We Americans are addicted to wheat.
 Next time you go grocery shopping, look at how many people
 are obese and look inside their buggies.
It's amazing! I just want to cry or yell at them what 
they are doing to their selves but most importantly to their kids!!
Wake up America, stop eating grains and sugar!!
Hugs to all. We can do this together.
Just start..... after about a week, you will not crave fattening foods.

Never Ending Battle

These "fat bombs" are so awesome, that I over eat them.
 I think that's why my blood sugar is high again.
 It started running high about the same time as I made my first batch.
Back to basics like I said in yesterdays blog.
No more fat bombs, or all these other new recipes I have found. 
I believe that just normal, easy food,
 like meat and vegetables is the best way to go.
I'll write more tomorrow about my blood sugar numbers. 
today was awful, 179....
It's been running around 100 before the fat bomb recipe...
You can not lose weight when your numbers are high.
ugh.....

Back to Basics, Atkins 101

I've been doing so good the past couple of months.
I'm losing weight and blood sugar numbers have been 
really good too. Till about 2 weeks ago.

I started making all these new "low carb"recipes and 
eating way too much. So today I'm getting back to basics.
Back to counting carbs and writing everything 
(that goes into my mouth) down in my food journal.
I don't do a fancy journal, like on my iPhone,
 I just write it in a spiral notebook.
This always helps!!

Walked on my treadmill already.
Cooked breakfast.
Cleaned the kitchen.
Washed my Moms clothes.
Just the normal stuff. 

For lunch:
Will eat a hot dog with just mustard on it,
 no bread of course
but I may wrap it in a lettuce leaf.
And supper: 
a big ground chuck burger
and a salad with just oil, vinegar and dried Italian seasoning
sprinkled on top.

Maybe some celery for a snack tonight.

Drink lots of water ......
have a great day everyone and thanks for following me ...
