  1. I admit, I’m a crust omitter, but not because I watch my carbs. For me it’s all about the creamy. And having just placed my seed order, and lined up likely a few too many winter squashes, cheesecake sounds like a genius use – it is my fav dessert after all!

  2. Hello there, I really enjoyed this post. I’ve just started up a blog website and am in the middle of creating somewhat diverse articles for it. Would you mind if I blog something about this? I will of course give you and this post full credit and add a link to this page , thank you.

    Those who need extra carbs should not resort to refined, processed foods. Make moderate allowances for good carbs by choosing berries, apples (with skin), yams (with skin), beans, barley, brown rice and whole grains. Some of these foods are loaded with potassium, which counteracts the acidity of carbohydrate and protein foods. Those on a low-carb diet may eventually want to add a few good carbs back into the diet as well.*
