We've both been trying to eat more fresh fruit and veggies, fewer carbohydrates (and preferably more measurable ones -- makes it easier to counter food with insulin), and more protein.
One of our favorite fruits, and one that is lower on the glycemic index, is apples. We bought a bunch the last time we went to the grocery, and have both been eating about one a day. I have always LOVED peanut butter on my apples, and went through a phase in college of adding sunflower kernels to the mix. Sunflower seeds are pretty high in protein, and I recently discovered they're folate-rich, too, so we grabbed a jar of those, too.
Which brings me to my little recipe. Ordinarily, I would've just mixed some stuff randomly, but since I'm trying to be MILITANT about counting my carbs, I measured everything and ran it through an online calculator. Here goes:
1C Peanut Butter
1/4 C Dry Roasted Sunflower Kernels
Toss all of it in a food processor and send it for a good long spin. It comes out looking a little unappetizing, but the smell and the TASTE more than make up for it :-)
I figure a serving is about 1/10 of the whole recipe, and it has:
2g dietary fiber
