    Default Sausage Casings - low carb -

    Hi
    I have been wrapping salads in rice paper (looks like a fat sausage) - so I
    can have my meals more conveniently when I am travelling.
    However am finding that the rice paper has a few carbs which is not working
    well for my sugar blood control.

    I tried googling for a 'healthy' or 'natural' sausage casing that may be low
    carb but no success so far.

    Does anyone have an idea for me?

    Thank you

    David

    Rice paper has 4.3 carbs in it...is that really too many? Not sure
    about sausage casings but they are made from hog or sheep intestines.
    Seems to me the 4.3 carbs far outweighs the thought of eating that.

    Problem is that I am eating 8 of these per day to get the calories I need -
    so tht is 35 calories just for the rice paper. I am trying to eat below 40
    carbs per day.

    Perhaps add extra minutes on your post meal exercise, that should care
    for the carbs you are having problems with processing. But at that low
    of carbs and not being able to process them, I would be speaking with
    my doctor about adding medication to help combat what seems to be
    a very high insulin resistance. JAT

    Are we talking sausage casing, or salad wrapping? Intestines are 100%
    carb free for sausages. I use lettuce or low-carb wraps for salad.

    Also the difficulty of stuffing thse caings with salad! Stuffing
    saussages into casings is a tricky job, best done on a meat grinde with a
    casing tool attached on which you place the scrunched casing(like a paper
    straw when you were a kid) adn then run the achine to get the seasoned
    meat into it playing out the casing at just the right speed. Frankly, I
    don't think you could get that salad into the casing.

    Yes I agree with both points - I could be exercising more and perhaps my
    meds need to be boosted

    I am talking salad wrapping but thought sausage casing would do the job - I
    tried lettuce and cabbage but hard to take after a while and I am eating
    these just about every meal

    Hi, David -- This part threw me. I guess, then, that you're not
    talking about a salad of greens since, in that case, one more piece of
    lettuce would be, well, just one more piece of lettuce? :-) So is it
    a chicken or tuna salad type thing you're wanting to wrap up?

    Have you thought about wrapping them in tortillas? There are some
    pretty good l/c ones out there. They are higher net carb, per piece,
    than your rice papers, but they'll also hold more salad. So you could
    cut them in half? Or quarters? Eight times a day, though, that still
    might be too much.

    Sausage casing would meet your requirements. But I'd opt for a bowl
    and fork first. ;-)

    Good luck!

    That's quite a diagnostic leap. Lots of folks have high blood glucose
    and DM without insulin resistance.

    What's wrong with nuts, avocados, olive oil etc for more calories? I am
    presuminh you need to stop driving to eat. Therefore a bowl of salad that
    you eat with a fork would be better. Add in some avocado, walnuts, oily
    dressing etc...

    Geez, what about wrapping some veggies in dried seaweed?

    You could put some zucchini sticks and lettuce in it.

    I did this at a show I worked last June - we were not supposed
    to bring any food in, so I wrapped some meatloaf in dried seaweed
    and snuck it in, in my purse. And I had a bag of sliced carrots
    in a plastic baggie - you could do that too. Just put some
    veggies in a plastic baggie. Like zucchini sticks or something....
    it works when you need some carbs.

    Hey the meatloaf sushi sound gross, but I was doing better
    than another diabetic co-worker who only had a bag of
    cashes in her pocket. That's not so great for a whole 8 hour shift.

    But in the future what I'll probably do is just wrap some cold
    chicken in wax paper. Should be good enough!

    I don't want to work that show ever again though.

    Ha! Yes maybe I can avocado is a food I totally forgot about and I will add
    a few more almonds
    My wife also told me exactly the same thing - stop driving, pull over and
    eat like a human being!

    Thanks for that - yes it is chicken salad mostly I am working with - with
    herbs and satay flavouring it tastes wonderful - I am trying to dump my
    meds. Tortillas probably would be too many carbs but will look into it
    the bowl and fork might win

    sounds nice . . . the meatloaf in seaweed. smart thinking
    you have got to get through that shift and 8 hours is a long time!
    I will look into seaweed - might be too much sodium for me

    Cabbage, Kale, Lettuce. Or you can hollow out a cucumber.

    I tried cabbage - it got too hard after a while so much raw food! Will try
    lettuce I think that would work if it doesnt fall apart to easily - lettuce
    is easy to take
    hollow out a cucumber - prolly would work as well although that is a lot of
    cucumber expense wise -
    thanks Julie

    You can use the center of the cucumber as a salad itself. It's good with
    chopped tomato and onion or put in tabbouli. I like to do cucumber cups. I
    cut them in chunks, hollow out, leaving just the bottom and stuff with
    hummus. But they do sell something with a big cucumber hollowed out and
    filled with salad. It's called a gorilla sandwich.

    Stuff a reen or thoer colored pepper with the salad. Use a whole one.
    may seem expensive, but the pepper is really a good part of the meal
    nutritionwise.

    Sounds really good. If you're trying to go without meds, the l/c
    tortillas might be too high in carbs, in the beginning at least, but
    you could try one and see how it works. The ones I like are about 10g
    net, I think, but I only use half of one.

    I agree with your wife. It doesn't take that long to stop and eat,
    and that would open up a lot of possibilities for you. Good luck! :-)

    Be careful with the tabouli and hummus....they are not so low carb.

    Don't forget to let us know how it works out for you. You've got a
    lot of good suggestions here -- now you don't have to eat the same
    thing for lunch all the time. ;-)

    They can add up, as he explains later. Why eat unnecessary starch when
    there are better alternatives?

    Sausage casings for true sausages have been made that way for
    millennia. Are you saying you never eat real sausages?

    Far too many people are becoming too far removed from real food.

    Another possibility is to replace the chicken with thinly sliced roast
    beef and use that as the wrapper.

    Yes peppers are a good way thanks for the idea - just not as easy to chomp

    I like home made tabouli, one can regulate the amount of bulghur that goes
    into it. Pre prepared tabouli often has way more bulghur than parsley.
    Sometimes I buy a containr of tabouli from a kebab shop. Middle Eastern
    people make the real deal IMO.
