    I made this for lunch today. I checked my postprandial blood glucose at one hour after eating and got a reading of 124 mg/dl.
    At two hours after eating it was 100 mg/dl

    How does this compare with other meals you have eaten? Hourly readings save time and money, but don't give you many data points.

    I like em' too, but can't have them. Too many carbs for me.

    Everyone is going to react differently, but for me at least there was no wild blood glucose spike. 100 mg/dl is considered a decent fasting blood glucose level (I think). I have no medical background I just test to see how my body reacts. Checking blood sugar levels at 2 hours after eating is the standard (again, I think). I don't want to over-interpret anything but I'm thinking that the carbs made it to my large intestine and my gut bugs did the heavy lifting. I'll have to get wild n' crazy some time and eat a couple slices of white bread to compare glucose levels. I'm guessing I'd hit 180 mg/dl.
