Low Carb Pizza Snacks

This has been my go to football snack and lunch recently. My doctor had said back in October to cut all carbs from my diet immediately or she was putting me on diabetes medication. I said, “Okay, I will.” It has been a HUGE learning curve for all of us since then. I have had no real cravings for pasta, rice, or bread. I think I was so scared that I had to be perfect on this that I was able to not even think about those things.

Then in December my father died. It was not unexpected but never the less it is still my Dad. I learned that emotions play a big role in how my body handles blood sugar. It was not good for about 3 weeks. I was eating the same but my blood sugar was high, for me, and nothing else changed other than my emotional state and living in a hotel for awhile. I kept eating the same just to try and keep one thing in my life consistent. Once we returned home my blood sugar instantly dropped back to normal and life returned to normal.

Verdict: This is a delicious, easy alternative to pizza or pizza dip. It takes less than 15 minutes start to finish, especially if you grate your cheeses ahead of time. Remember that pre shredded cheese can have more carbs than a cheese block due to additives to keep the cheese from clumping together. Check your cheese or shred your own for lower carbs.
