And it's so much better for you.
Because of my diabetes
  I can't afford the extra carbs
in a slice of bread, much less two pieces.
So I now ask for my bread
on the side or not at all
if I go out to eat.
And most restaurants
are happy to oblige.
I share that BREAD I didn't touch
with a few of my friends.
Seems they can never get their fill of it.

That's a great idea Taryterre and better again if it keeps your diabetes under control.

The sandwich looks absolutely delicious, bread or not!

Hope your daughter is ok

Have a good week

That is a great idea. More and more I'm eating one slice of bread for a sandwich rather than 2. It's just too filling most of the time. I should be loosing weight because I really am eating less than I used to. But I'm not. I hope your Tuesday is a terrific one!

I am one of those people who picks out the innards of a sandwich and leaves at least 50% of my bread on the plate. I have always done that. No idea why. And now the princess is doing that. Which is fine by me. But, this is a great tip to simple order the sandwich without the bread!

'SWEET' idea. Who would have thunk it?
That is great, and also makes a very good entry.

Hay that looks good just like ordering a salad. Last night I made a taco salad with out tacos.

That looks pretty tasty and no bread needed either.

My husband is a Type 2 diabetic and I know you already know this but we have had great success getting his blood sugar under control with the Eat to Live plan by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. Lots of soups, stews, salads and vegetable dishes. Also oatmeal and beans. We are never hungry either. Keep up the good work!

Paula said...

Good idea, why didn't I think of that?

Nelle said...

I buy diet bread that has 40calories per slice. You can have a sandwich on that and it only counts as 1 carb. I found when I gave up bread I was hungry and ate higher carbs in other things.

Lori said...

I do that a lot. And often when I make the kids burgers at home, I just have mine with no bun, and the toppings on the side. Or I might melt a little cheese on top and eat it like that without bread.

That is a good tip you're passing on. I too am diabetic and try to watch the carb intake. My biggest downfall ~ bread. Love the stuff but it doesn't love me ~ bummer.

Cliff said...

Yeah, I cooked up some bacon in small pieces for breakfast this morning and tossed it with fresh chopped tomatoes and a little mayo. Really good stuff.

Lucy said...

That is a good way to control your diet. The inside looks good. Better go. Groceries are coming in the door.
