Crispy, Spicy Chicken with LC Mash

I'm beginning my Luo Han Guo vs. Stevia Experiment today. I bought a blood glucose monitor and have both sweeteners on hand. Let the games begin! 

Update: My first test involved a before and after test on stevia. I found a 6 point bump in blood sugar. Here's how I got there: I tested my blood sugar (about 2 hours after breakfast) and got a reading of 97. I drank a mug of stevia-sweetened ChocoCoffee and then retested my blood sugar about a half hour later. The reading showed 103. How much of that was the stevia? I don't know ... yet.

I have to wowee zowee just the exclamation, or are you a fan of Pavement?

I'm a fan. :-) For whatever reason, those words came to mind when I was trying to think up a name for this menu blog. The mind works in mysterious ways. :-)

FANTASTIC! I thought of it as soon as I saw the name of your blog, but just never asked. have you heard Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks?

now I have Brinx Job stuck in my head. ;)

Harry said...

Yep. I've followed Malkmus off-and-on since Pavement disbanded. :-)
