Yes, MeatLoaf Is Good For Diabetes

OK, I’m diabetic. I have to watch what I eat and eat frequent light meals. That’s hard for a guy who used to run 10-12 miles daily and eat thousands of calories a day…

One of the most important meals of my day is a bedtime snack to keep the liver fooled about the need to pump me full of blood-sugar all night. When I test in the morning, it sure helps to eat something low in carbs then. Last night was an example. I made a meatloaf of venison. It was delicious and nutritious.

I recently received the donation of a small hand-powered meat-grinder and I pushed a pound of venison through it, a poor roast between brisket and ribs… I first sectioned the meat trying to remove all fat and sinew. Then I cubed it and pushed it down into the grinder. Presto! Ground meat. To push the last bit through, I diced an onion and pushed that through. I then disassembled the grinder and put the remaining onion in the bowl and added powdered garlic, black pepper, oatmeal and a pinch of cure. I stirred well and put the mix into a glass baking dish in the microwave oven. A few minutes of “sensor cook” and a few minutes more of heat at a low level and it was done. I cheated and had two servings with a bit of pasta sauce on top scattered with parmesan cheese…

Anyway, the blood-sugar was at the top end of a normal range this morning. It’s all good.
