Thank goodness!  DH is seeming to “get it” about his need to change.

How do I know?  Well, yesterday morning I was looking in the freezer for what to take out for dinner and found a 1/2 of a frozen sweet potato and an unmarked Ziploc that held a wrapped package from Albertson’s.  Took them both out.

Sounds counter-intuitive to some, but in the world of those who are “pre-diabetic” sweet potatoes actually stabilize blood sugars better than Idahos or reds.

Plus, if you add cinnamon (another sugar stabilizing item)it really is a good choice.  Just keep them under 6 ounces please.

As for the “surprise” package?  Well, neither of us could remember if it was salmon steaks or beef steaks-so we figured we’d just grill whichever one it was and enjoy.

Pointing out the size of the package, I informed DH that the overage would be his lunch protein.

All on his own-DH looked at the size of what became apparent was a steak of the cow kind and said, “Send me soup for lunch and we can have the second steak for dinner tomorrow night.”

Whoa!  What a breakthrough!  A few weeks ago he would have kept telling me how little there really was and that part of it was bone/fat and eaten every bit of that second piece!

Here’s to hoping he continues to make the changes all on his own and keeps on looking forward to our meatless meals.

This week? I’m thinking I’ll give him a low-carb, whole wheat pasta with a nice sauce filled with some baby bellas, broccoli and even some butternut squash.

Love it
