    Type two diabetic-low carb diet (50 carbs per day) and two 500mg Metformin pills per day. Apart from diagnosis HbA1c almost 12-all HbA1c results none diabetic. For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    This cake easily serves 18 - so each serve contains 0.99 carbs each.

    It was thanks to Andy and Paul that I recently found Ewelina's food blog ... and here is a lovely recipe idea from it.

    "Does this look good or what!" ... I think it looks delicious!

    Orange Mousse : The Low Carb Way

    I've always enjoyed mousse as a dessert, such a lovely way to round off a delicious meal. This lovely recipe is for a light and fluffy orange mousse and it makes a nice refreshing dessert, a great end to your low carb meal. You may add a splash of orange liquor, such as Cointreau or Grand Marnier, to give it an indulgent kick.


    Ingredients (make 8 small glasses):
    3.2g carb per portion
    4 sheets of leaf gelatine
    zest of 2 oranges, juice of 1
    4 eggs separated
    100g erythritol (powdered)
    300ml double cream

    Preparation:
    1. Soak the gelatine in cold water to soften it. Heat the orange juice in the microwave for 30 sec. Squeeze the excess water from the gelatine, add to the hot juice and stir to dissolve. Set aside to cool.
    2. Put the egg yolks, erythritol and orange zest into a bowl and whisk over a saucepan of hot water for 10 mins until thick and foamy. Remove from the heat and continue whisking until completely cool.
    3. Fold the gelatine and orange mix into the egg yolk mixture. In separate bowls, whisk the egg whites and cream until both are softly stiff, then gently fold into the orange mix. Spoon into 8 glasses and chill until set. Decorate with slice of orange. The mousse can be refrigerated for up to 2 days.

    Enjoy, I'm sure you will!

    This lovely recipe idea is from Ewelina ... and here she is


    Ewelina is a Type 1 Diabetic ... here is what she says "Diabetes and cakes doesn’t sound like a great combination. Well not to me, I have always loved baking and after diagnosis with diabetes type 1 in 2011 I had to find some way of combining these two. It is quite challenging and anyone who knows a little bit about baking will agree with me. How to bake without using flour or sugar?! After long research and checking hundreds of recipes I came across some great ideas. There are sugar substitutes that work quite well in most recipes and there are many different low carb flours and flour substitutes. I’m still learning and discovering new products and recipes but with every cake I make I know more and more. Now I’m convinced that low carb cakes can be delicious and we don’t need to feel sorry for not having regular cakes. Cakes from my blog are equally good (if not better) and you can eat them without worrying too much about your sugar levels"

    ... this mousse would make a great dessert for Valentine's Day wouldn't it!
