I'm Insulin Resistant, I guess that means pre-diabetic, I'm not sure.
This is what I ate and dropped 40 pounds in 4 months. I never felt deprived, antsy, jittery, never craved anything.

I crisped up 100% whole wheat tortilla's in the frying pan.
I heaped a pile of spinach on top.
Cheddar cheese on top
Reading the label on shredded cheese I nearly fell over. Potatoe starch! Yikes, thanks but no thanks, I'll shred myself.

Sometimes I put tomatoe sauce on the crisped tortilla, basil, spinach & homemade shredded cheese. Pop it in the microwave til the cheese is melted, enjoy.

I like this group. I'm glad I fell into it tonight.
Magnolia Rouge.

Welcome, Magnolia!

Weekends are kind of slow around here. I'm glad you like reading about this group. There are a lot of neat people here.

Thanks for sharing your recipe.

I hope you're eating other things, too, for balance, like more vegetables and some fruits, too. A 40 lb. loss is great!
