For instance, one day Lorraine was cooking up a wonderful stir-fry and tweeted a picture of the pretty veggies cooking in the pan. Then she tweeted a picture of the finished dish and a link to the recipe. Soon we were having a cooking conversation and Elizabeth mentioned how happy she was that she had the ingredients for the stir-fry recipe in her fridge. And then, Elizabeth tweeted a wonderful idea . . .
Maybe we should have a d-blog day where we all post our favorite carb-friendly recipes.And the idea was born. After some discussion and fine-tuning, we are happy to announce . . .
We invite you to join us for a D-Feast by blogging about your favorite "blood glucose friendly" recipes next Friday, July 23rd. Your recipe might be low carb, but doesn't have to be. We know that everyone’s blood sugars react differently to foods, so unfortunately there are no guarantees every recipe will work for everyone. But hopefully we can each walk away with a few new wonderful recipes that do work well for our blood sugars.
Feel free to include pictures of you cooking and of the final meal, and any special techniques you use. Have fun with it! (If you’d rather simply link to a favorite recipe that’s already online, feel free to do that as well.) Nutritional information is always welcome, particularly carb counts with defined serving sizes, but also calories, fat and protein if you know it. If your recipe is low carb, gluten free, low calorie, vegetarian or vegan, please indicate this in your title so that people looking for these types of meals will be able to reference pertinent recipes quickly.
Link to your D-Feast Friday blog post next Friday by coming back to my blog or to Elizabeth's or Lorraine's. We will each be posting a button for you to click on to add your recipe post to the link list.
Want to add a recipe but don't have a blog? Just contact us and we'll add your recipe to the list.
Next Friday is the official D-Feast Friday, but feel free to continue posting and linking to recipes whenever you feel the urge. The list will be ongoing, and the more recipes the better.
Now lets get cooking!!
