Meat and two veg (one of which is McCain Microwave Chips) is pretty good for my diabetes (not for my heart, take it up with my GP). To complete the lazy-ass setup I get the tesco microwave veg, it’s ok (it’s steamed). My blood sugar is usually around 5 or 6 two hours after any combo of meat, veg and those chips. However, it gets boring quick. I quite like roast chicken, and steak and pork and all the other kinds of meat, but it still gets boring.
I can usually tolerate it for a couple of weeks before getting sick and wanting pizza and other high carb stuff.
Which means I understand why mustard and pepper are so important (and clearly, all the other spices).
Yesterday I had pork smothered in mustard before I cooked it, and today steak with crushed black pepper corns (fresh). Nice change.
