Goat cheese & Roasted Red Peppers on the good stuff!

It’s your Cut the B.S. girl reporting from the official Cut the B.S. Kitchen. I’m here to remind you that diabetic dining doesn’t have to be boring and tasteless. It can be flavorful & D-licious!

Today, I made myself a sandwich on the good stuff. And when I say good stuff, I’m talking about the artisan breads you find at your local grocer. Today, it’s all about my good friend rosemary! Rosemary bread is just super yummy.

Wanna know how to put this yummy sandwich together? Here’s how:

  • Take about 2 oz. of your fancy bread. Make sure to look it up on your favorite carb counter. Remember to use a food scale to measure the bread since that where most of the carbs are. If you buy it sliced in 1/2 inch increments its about 2 slices.
  • Smear some goat cheese on each slice.
  • Add roasted red peppers-about an ounce or 2. I’m lazy so I use the jarred stuff. I like to dry them off with a paper towel so not as to soggy my bread.
  • Throw in a leafy green or alfalfa sprouts.
  • Slap the two sides together.
  • cut at an angle. I don’t know, it feels fancier that way.
  • Enjoy!
  • So you’re looking at the picture thinking…

    “Cut the B.S. girl, you’re supposed to eat 45-60 of carbs per meal. Your picture says 32. You’re short!”

    Besides saying…”I’m not short…I’m fun sized.” I’d show you this:

    Bam! You just ate healthy and you get to be bad-it’s not even the sugar free stuff. Boo-yah!

    Remember:
    Make it healthy.
    Make it D-Licious.
    Make sure to…”Cut the B.S.!” and I mean blood sugar!

    Eating like a kiD again.

    I just had half a sunbutter sandwich on whole wheat bread. (25 grams of carbs)
    A half a cup of fresh pineapple. (11 g of Cb)
    A half a cup of blueberries. (8 g of Cb)
    And a cup of coconut milk. (10 g of Cb)

    Total carbs: 54 g

    I might as well have eaten it out of a lunchbox, it was soooooo good!

    Speaking of, here’s a picture of the lunchbox I would have eaten it out of if I thought of it sooner. Thanks again, Anni!

    And…
    Make sure to “Cut the B.S.!…I mean blood sugar.”

    Just kiddin’ Chicken Parmesan Sandwhich

    20120805-000837.jpg

    Ok how good does that look??? It was! And not bad for 57 grams of carbs.

    So, you’re probably asking why it’s called Just Kiddin’ Chicken. My husband is a vegetarian. Back when we first got married, the idea of vegetarian meats was just very foreign to me. I grew up in a Filipino household. There was no fake meat up in that place. Unless you consider spam fake. Anyhow, to get myself familiarized with the vegetarian meat variety, I started to give them my own names and so, the name “just kiddin’ chicken” was born.

    The main carbohydrate choices here are the whole wheat bun (32 grams) and the just kiddin’ chick patty (16 grams). The rest is in the veggies and the tomato sauce. What makes this sandwich parmesan-y is the tomato sauce, the pinch of low fat mozzarella and parmesan cheese, the tomato, and lastly the fresh basil from my mother-in-law’s garden. That fresh basil gives it the right touch.

    D-Lish!

    Remember to Cut the B.S.!
