I am no expert on anything, but I know what works for my husband and me. My husband is a Type 2 diabetic. Our diet now focuses on vegetarian, high fiber, low-glycemic dishes although we do include meat sometimes. We also eat lots of fish. Typical day for him is oatmeal with raisins and maybe a banana for breakfast., Lunch is almost always a sandwich plus an apple AND an orange. Dinner might be quiche, a salad, and asparagus . Or maybe mac and cheese (made with low-glycemic pasta) and two veggies. Later he may have sugar-free pudding, a fruit smoothie, or sugar-free yogurt. Definitely not low carb.
His doctor says his blood-sugar counts are so good he will never have health issues caused by his diabetes and that he should be teaching classes. He takes an extremely low dose of medication once a day. Of course that makes a big difference. But it also makes a big difference in his testing results if we go off the diet we designed for him.
I don't know that what works well for one person works well for another. I'm also under the impression that Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are pretty different. I do think that we all need as much information as possible to determine what foods are best for us as an individual. Best wishes for your continued good health!
I think Jeffrey is great. As is Melissa.
And as a business they don't hire the best cook to host if the cook cannot entertain an audience. There was nothing unethical about keeping Adam on the show. The judges were very open about why he was there. There is nothing in wrong with giving more than one of the finalists a show.
After last night's show I was thinking there is NO way I could ever cook for that table of chef's and cooks. Not that they were too harsh, just the pressure of cooking for so many experts. My hat is off to the three who did it.
They are both full of stories about being home cooks and they both enjoy many types of international dishes.
Jeffrey's demo tonight was great. He did make the scallops look easy to do, gave great tips for a good result, and made me WANT to make them.
By the by, I think Big Daddy's show is excellent.
Having hired many people, I would have sent Debbie home the first time she showed a lack of integrity. I do hope this is a learning experience for her. She is young (so can certainly grow and change), personable and talented. If she can recognize that she is not being truthful and ethical when the going gets tough, she can change that.
