(Pre) Low Glycemic Index Diet

We are waiting to hear back from the dietician in Boston with Evan's personalized diet plan before we start him on the low glycemic index diet. This is basically a modification of the Atkins diet: no sugar, no carbs, high fat, high protein.

In the mean time, we have been introducing some of the foods to try to get him used to the dietary changes. Some things will be easy, like giving him a lot of cheese and bacon because he already likes those things. Pre-packaged items are pretty much out and he can't have artificial sweeteners. We have two approved natural sweeteners to use: Stevia and Blue Agave Syrup. Everything will have to be homemade and we are eagerly awaiting a delivery of homemade ketchup, coming soon in the mail from Grandma Mabel! She has made her neighbors do a blind taste test and everyone says her's tastes better than Heinz -- these are high marks, now we'll put it to the test with the true ketchup connoisseurs.

We have tried a few new recipes with mixed success: almond flour pancakes were a no go, but can hopefully be improved upon, fish sticks with an almond batter were delicious and everyone liked them except Evan and tonight we got rave reviews from both kids on a cinnamon bread made with almond flour. Rob and I were impressed with the cinnamon bread too. We are such food people that it is really hard to try convince Evan something tastes good when it really doesn't, and let's face it, you can't make legitimate flour out of nuts! We are continuing to experiment though and are slowly finding things that Evan can eat and actually taste good. It is definitely a challenge.

Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with
hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of
hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods
to protect against hackers?
