    Try some nuts for your protein too. If you are having tofu as your main source of protein then you are having some carbs. All vegetables have carbs. It's just a matter of choosing the right ones that won't raise your blood sugars. Nuts are a great source of protein, fiber and some of them are loaded with the good omega oils too. Good luck with your battle to lower your A1c.

    Veggies that have carbs would be the starchy kind like peas, corn, of course potatoes. I eat a lot of broccoli, green beans, zucchini, even half of a sweet potato, to add variety. I think the diabetic diet is a lot like the old Adkins diet, which I used to do to lose weight. High protien, low carb. For a treat, I have sugar free jello with whipped cream on top, almost no carbs at all and satisfies my sweet cravings. I have eggs for breakfast, several mornings a week, but don't want to overdo them, so I do have cereal once or twice a week, usually Special K with strawberries or plain cheerios, with low fat milk.
