GOD is NOT Dead. (Movie)


I love the quote in that movie from the woman who seemed to be completely
out of touch with life:

"Sometimes the devil allows people to live a life free of trouble because he
doesn't want them turning to God. Your sin is like a jail cell except it's all
nice and comfy and there doesn't seem to be any need to leave. The doors are
wide open till one day time runs out and the cell door slams shut, and suddenly
it's too late."

Food Review



This stuff is sooooooooo good, and it smells wonderful as it's cooking.

Of course it doesn't look as good as the photo on the box. In fact, if I
went solely by the true appearance of the dish as it came out of the
microwave, I'd probably throw it away! But the taste is amazing.

Those beans have added sugar, as well. I wonder how much. Turn that can a little
and take another picture so I can see the rest of the nutritional label,
please. Thank you.

Hi Suzie and all diabetics.
Here is one of my favourite recipes from the Australian Better Homes and Gardens DIABETIC LIVING magazine.

Mexican-style beans

Cook 1/2 chopped red capsicum (bell peppers in America), 1 small zucchini and 1 teaspoon Mexican chilli powder in 1 teaspoon olive oil for 3-4 minutes or until soft. Add 130 gram can salt reduced baked beans and heat through. Top with 2 tablespoons reduced-fat grated cheese and a few coriander leaves. Serve with 1 light tortila.

Note: I don't like hot spicy food so I only add a sprinkle of the Mexican chilli powder.

PER SERVE
protein 14 grams
total fat 11 grams (sat fat 4.1 grams)
carbs 26 grams
fiber 10 grams
sodium 727mg
Carb exchange 1 1/2
Gi estimate low


Are your baked beans the same as ours? Ours are beans with things added to
them. They're usually good enough to eat right out of the can. Well, I mean,
warmed up!



You can see there's a lot of sugar.

Try adding a small amount of cumin (spice) to your recipe. Cumin is what makes
most Mexican food taste Mexican.

I'm not only addicted to sugar, but I'm somewhat addicted to salt, too. I'm not
one of those people who adds salt before I taste my food, but my mom is. She is
a salt addict - even puts salt on her watermelon and in her beer (when she drank
it) - which is the reason I'm a salt addict. Not an excuse. Just an explanation.

I just wasn't thinking when I added the salt and knew immediately that I'd added
too much. Not much to do about it, though. In some cases you can reduce the amount
of salt by adding some potato, like in stews and such.

I used to have a cat that would play fetch with one of my green, wool, Army
socks. I'd sit on the couch and throw it back over my head, which would send
it down the hall. Dufus (the cat) would run after it and bring it back to me.
He also liked to play fetch with the bits of the Odor Eater insert I'd cut
off to fit the inserts into my boots. He was such a great cat. He and his
brother, Bubba, lived to be 19 years old. They traveled back and forth to
Germany with me twice.

This is what I will have for breakfast this week. Eggs, onions, spinach, ham,
cooked in butter, topped with cheese, with added salt and pepper. I divided it
into seven meals and put them in the freezer. Ate the first one today. Too much
salt. Darn it.



Needs more spinach. I'll also have some fruit.

Just for the record, in case anyone is keeping track, I am 5' 8" tall and weigh
195 pounds. My weight has been consistent for a few years. I did eat a lot of
sugary treats.

5'8" = 173cm or 1.8m (I think)

Gordon,

Keep an eye on that brand and container type and size and see if all of them
have far-away expiration dates. Let us know what you find.

note to all: If you life long enough you will get diabetes. Same with cataracts. It comes with age.


My mom is 88 and has neither diabetes nor cataracts. My older brother (who is
about 67) has neither.

May he rest in peace.

I wonder if he knew he was sick (haven't seen the reports yet) and that's
why he retired. If he was hoping for some retirement time, then his death
really sucks, even more so.

In any case, I feel for his friends and family.

may be negotiating with The Donald for a wall of our own....

You can beat your diagnosis by having a low carb breakfast and then walking 4 miles and then in the gym for a 20-30 minute light workout on the weights. Your blood sugar will be right at 100 before lunch. I am assuming that you do not work full time.


I don't work at all. I'm retired. I plan to start walking on my treadmill (the
poor forsaken thing) but not 4 miles. That, and the minimal crazy dancing I do
sometimes when I'm alone with the music playing, is the only exercise I have
planned for now.

Stay active after dinner and give up the dessert and booze.
Eat multi-grain bread and sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes. Brown rice instead of white rice. Eat fruit instead of juice and get most of your carbs from vegetables. For lunch and dinner have lean meat, beans and another green vegetable (or salad) and possibly a small sweet potato for the evening meal.


I seldom drink alcohol. When I do it's either beer or wine. I will change
"dessert" to fruit instead of sweets.

Drink 2% milk or diet soda or ice tea. Stock up on canned or frozen vegetables when they go on sale. A can of corn will populate three dinners.


Corn is not the best choice. It's got lots of carbs, iirc. I plan to buy and
eat frozen since they're fresher and have more of the original nutrients.

Get yourself some plastic containers. I buy and roast a turkey breast when they are on sale for 99 cents per pound. Also chicken thighs for a s little as 49 cents per Lb. I like canned or frozen corn, lima beans, navy beans etc etc , I make up 6 or eight small dinners and freeze them. I can make a vey nice meal for about $1.00 and I enjoy them as well.


Got some containers for breakfast. I will cook a large amount of eggs with
onions, spinach, ham, and cheese, and divide that into servings for breakfast.
Haven't come up with recipes, yet, to do that for other meals, but I'm sure
I will as time goes on and I learn more and get used to the life.

Wonder if we should start a diabetic recipe thread?


We can do that here.
