As I’ve blogged in the past, one of the tools I use to maintain my sugar levels is the Attain GC Control Shake. I’ve been using this product daily for two and a half years now. I consider it an essential tool in my fight to control diabetes. I’ve taken to sprinkling a teaspoon full of the powder in my coffee in the morning. It’s delicious and it’s really helping me keep my sugar levels down during the day. I can’t remember the last time I saw my sugar go anywhere above 180, even an hour or two after eating. My fasting sugar is averaging in the 70’s and 80’s. This morning it was 83. Losing weight and running are definitely helping, but this amazing product is still an essential part of my daily routine. And I always have a full shake in the evenings, about two or three hours after dinner. This helps keep my sugar at a normal level at night as I sleep. As always, this is my personal experience and I cannot guarantee you will have the same result..
And finally, as I’ve blogged before, I am officially off my diabetes medication, Metformin. My A1C came down from 7.2 in December to 5.8 in June. This largely due to major lifestyle changes, especially taking up running and losing weight.
Life is good!
A few weeks ago I was approached by one of my followers who has written a soup recipe e-book. She asked me if I would give her a review in exchange for a free copy. I agreed of course. Especially as I have been looking to get more creative in the kitchen. I can make a mean stir-fry and great mashed potatoes. But I’ve never made a home-made soup.
Unfortunately things got in the way. We were at a convention for a week and were still busy when we got back. So tonight was the first real chance I had to try one of her recipes. Her book is the Groovy Green Kitchen volume two. It has several great soup recipes. The one I chose to make tonight was the Groovy Green Broccoli soup. It was so simple to make and so delicious! My wife and I both loved it and I know I will be making this soup on a regular basis. There are several other soups I’m looking forward to trying, not least the mushroom and the tomato soups. I definitely won’t be waiting long to make those.
So I thought I’d promote this lady and her blog and her book. Because the soups in her recipes will rival anything you could expect to taste in a restaurant and you can make them yourself! To borrow an old phrase from a well known company “They’re so easy a caveman could make them!”
Her name is Geraldine and this is her blog…
And this is her e-book…
I don’t usually advertise things on my blog but when something is this good it would be a shame not to!
