    I appreciate not everyone likes spiders but this Dancing Peacock Spider is not only beautiful but its also endearing. Maratus unicup & other Peacock spiders was discovered by Dr Otto & he has a website for those interested. This was taken from abc's science news http://www.abc.net.au/news/science/2018-07-21/new-peacock-spiders-discovered/10007422 https://www.peacockspider.org/

    Supposedly (this is not always the case) whole wheat breads are made from whole wheat, which means that its the entire wheat grain kernel. Whole grain bread is made from a mixture of different grains such as wheat, oats, barley, and similar. Supposedly they also use the entire grain kernel. Rye breads can't be called whole wheat because obviously they aren't just wheat but technically could be whole grain depending on the ingredients. The tell tale signs of supposedly whole grain is to look at the ingredients list. It will have to word whole for the grains involved. Note: True whole grains are unusual in most commercial breads. true whole grain flours will contain the germ, which contains the fat of the seed. That fat makes the flour and products it can be made into less shelf stable. So most whole grain and whole wheat breads you find on the shelves actually have small fractions of true whole grains. More info on the subject https://greatist.com/eat/best-healthy-bread Whether or not Jeweish Rye or dark Rye are "whole grain" is going to be on a type by type basis. Look on the ingredients list is the only thing I can say. I believe I have heard mention here that a few people have good luck with small amounts of rye bread.

    What a great idea, Kit. I think I actually do use less of the onions, peppers, and tomato now, but mushrooms and spinach are a wonderful thought. I will do that. Thanks for the suggestion. My hubs uses Tabasco or Chulula (sp) sauce, and I've used salsa and sour cream on it before the diabetes thing. LOL But what are WHOLE GRAIN breads. I'm still confused on that. Is Jewish Rye and Dark Rye in that category? I only have half a slice of toast in the morning, but I want to make sure it's whole grain.

  13. Simple Recipes to Keep BG Under Control

    It does look like a good recipe with all the components I adore. Its a little carbier than I can tolerate, but that would be an easy tweak. Just drop the volume of onions/peppers/tomatoes. Maybe toss in a few sliced mushrooms in place and some spinach. But that's just my personal preferences and tolerance. Oh, would also go really well with a splash or two of Tabasco or a little salsa. I've personally given up on breads, even whole grain. My body just doesn't react well to them. Some people here have reported they do well with sprouted grain breads. I haven't tried myself.
  14. Are you on a diet to lose weight?

    ok.i also have the my compliments popcorn which is the safeway owned brand. 5 popped cups is 28 carb 5 fibre. smart pop must be different than others
  15. This is weird. According to the Pop Secret website. Serving Size: 1 Tbsp (29g) unpopped, approx 4 cups popped. Contains 3 servings per bag Total carbs - 20g Dietary Fiber - 2g Looking at more info on their website, I actually question the validity of their labels. Another one doesn't give weight but says its 1 serving, makes approximately 5 cups of popcorn and only has 20g of carbs. Another one says 3 Tbsp (33g) of their kernels makes 5 cups of popped product with 24g carbs, 4g fiber. There is a lot of odd variation for basically the same product. But seriously, I really suspect the carb count is higher than it seems. The information would be more accurate of course if we had weights for everything. Measuring popped popcorn by volume is an extremely inaccurate method as size and shape of the popped kernel can vary significantly.
  16. Are you on a diet to lose weight?

    I'm getting this info from the box tho so it must be accurate.
  17. That doesn't sound right. According to MyFitnessPal, 1 cup of air popped popcorn (nothing added) comes in at 6g of carbs, 1g of fiber. Which would make 8 cups of popcorn come out to about 48g of carbs, 8g of fiber. 4 cups of popped popcorn would be 24g of carbs, 4g of fiber so 20 net carbs if you subtract all of the fiber. Two cups would give you around 10g net carbs. I chose generic air popped since 1) Nothing has been added to affect the numbers 2) None of the Smart Pop selections gave serving sizes outside of bag, and I've no idea how big or small their bags are. Unless they use some super modified corn to make their popcorn, the carb counts should be pretty much the same.

    Thanks. And it is good, try it. And so easy to make in the morning. It's even good without the cheese. I have a question for you, if you're into diabetic foods. What are consider whole grain breads? I'm having a problem finding that out.
  19. Are you on a diet to lose weight?

    mod i'm sorry you are having a tough time. i'm having a hard time keeping track of what is happening on here. 306.6 this morning. i can't wait to be under 300. i never in my life thought i would ever be as high as 300 pds but it just happened when i was put on some bad meds. help me out with this nutritional info. i never in my life thought you could eat popcorn on a low carb diet but i already had some smart pop hiding in the pantry. 8 popped cups is 30 carb 9 fibre. so i can eat 4 cups of popcorn for only 10.5 net carbs? my meal limit is 12 (sometimes i go a bit over) but 4 cups is a actually reasonable size of a serving. i desperately want some things to eat that are not meat and cheese. this popcorn is low fat bc i dont do high fat-i do eat some fat. mostly pepperoni although i've been getting the turkey one and low fat cheese
