Hi, I`m 69 and diabetic type 2, 400 days ago I started a low carb lifestyle. It was a complete change for me and took a little getting used to but I found 2 things helped me a lot.
1. I bought a soup maker. I know its easy to make soup in a pan but how many can be bothered? In a soup maker its even easier, chop whichever veg you like put it in the machine add stock or water to level, choose smooth or chunky, switch on and in 25 mins you are having really nice soup. Rinse out, put away for tomorrow.
2. I use cheese sauce to make fantastic veg bakes. My favourite is Brocolli and cauliflower just carbs and fat, best sugar reading ever.
Hope this inspires struggling non veggie eaters.
