What To Eat That Won’t Blow Up My Blood Sugar?

What To Eat That Won’t Blow Up My Blood Sugar?

This is a somewhat common post in this group.

Many are trying to heed the advice of their Doctor or other Diabetes Specialist and might be a little confused or even apprehensive about eating something because they are worried about what it will do to their sugar levels.

What (they) usually give us is a list of what NOT TO EAT which doesn’t help.

My own diet has evolved quite a bit since I was first diagnosed in 2016. Today what I eat looks nothing like the first foods that were on my “safe… read more

@A DiabetesTeam Member I will repost the USA link for the Carbonaut breads for you that I have found, you can look through them. They are a little more expensive then regular breads for sure ubt are mostly diabetic friendlier.

Only the Oven door and Amazon on the USA side has a direct link you can click on, but it states in USA they can be found in Costco, Target, whole foods market, sprouts farmers market.

For us Candians there are a few stores such as Costco which sell some, but I have not been there since pandemic started to know if Quebec has any as I order mine online from the Low Carbs grocery store online (it is in Ontario but deliver here in Qc. It is harder to find some foods here in Quebec Canada because of the language laws requiring nutrition labels and Ingredients be in French also, so many products we are unable to obtain other then through Ontario stores or Amazon.ca (but amazon.ca does not sell Carbonaut breads here, at least not in Quebec even doing a search in there does not show them popping up. For Canadians the link below is where I buy a lot of my Keto foods or low Carbs such as the Carbonaut.

But I now buy my Catalina Crunch Cereals from a Quebec company here who sell it a lot cheaper then the Low Carbs grocery store (probably because they have their own delibery system rather then Post Canada). They have a lot of foods online also which I may try in the future also. It is called Sante Nature I have yet to explore other foods, but I ordered their cereals and it was cheaper, but other stuff cost more then Ontario stores. Here is the link below for my fellow Quebecers

I buy the Carbonaut bread all the time and is the only bread that I eat regularly. My wife makes almond flour dinner buns and hogie and hamburger buns that I also eat. I really like the Carbonaut bread line and usually buy the seeded multigrain loaf which has 2g net carbs and 6g protein per slice. Carbonaut also do have a gluten free loaf with a similar carb profile.
This bread should meet your needs Scoobydee if you can find it. Goog luck.

But I also eat regular bread at times depending what I put on them, I choose lower Carbs bread and if a sandwich or toast, as long as below 30 g Carbs for the whole meal me I can tolerate. When newly diabetic I used to eat rye bread and that was not too bad on my numbers either.

Hi Scoobydee,
I have never ordered from Netrition but a google search had 700+ reviews. They were mixed as is with most reviews but most were very good and overall had a high rating. They are based in Albany New York. I did check their prices and were surprised to find they were very similar to ours here in BC and Carbonaut is a BC company. Good luck hope this helps.
