Talangka Season

My FBS report card:  78

Wonderful!  Some people do not really want to believe it is true.  They said, maybe my strips are defective because it cannot be that my sugar is low and NORMAL!!!  It has never been normal for the past 12 years!!!  

Maybe, there is a possibility because, since I came back from Boracay last June, I have had below 200 readings.  I bought a new set of strips and today my FBS is still in the normal range!  So I suppose that should make the doubting Thomases believe in me or rather in this Wheat-free lifestyle I am adapting.

Some of my friends have been having problems with their high cholesterol levels.  Perhaps they are not yet ready to believe in something as new as Wheat-free.   They do not want to eat egg yolks!   But Dr. Davis said to eat eggs, not one per week but to eat what your body tells you to eat.

Dr. Davis said the fat phobia of the past forty years turned us off from foods such as eggs, sirloin and pork because of their saturated fat content - BUT saturated fat was never the problem.  Carbohydrates in combination with saturated fats, however, cause  measures of LDL particles to skyrocket.

In fact, new studies have exonerated saturated fat as an underlying contributor to heart attacks and stroke risk,

He also said to USE OIL GENEROUSLY.  Curtailing oil is entirely unnecessary.  Use healthy oils such as extra-virgin olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil and cocoa butter.  AVOID polyunsaturated oils such as sunflower, safflower, corn and vegetable oils.

Ok, I am going to test the theory.  I bought Talangka today!!!! 

I did not eat it with rice.  I will check my blood sugar tomorrow.

It is Talangka season already! I wish I could buy it all the time but it is very rare that you will see it in the markets.  I bought mine from Landmark Supermarket.  I know they also sell in Salcedo market but it costs an arm and a leg.

After Lechon.... Talangka is my next favorite food.  Thank goodness SHELLFISH is allowed in the  Wheat-free lifestyle!  LOL Do you think Dr. Davis is aware that there is such a thing as talangka?
