About one month ago, I decided to reduce my intake of carbohydrates, especially sugars and any food made from flour. The reason was to lessen the spikes I was seeing in my post-meal blood sugar (I will post more about this later).
In general, cutting down on carbs has been easy, with one exception. I REALLY enjoy liver pate, pork rillettes, nachos, tacos, and other items that beg to be eaten on a cracker, a slice of good crusty bread, or a corn chip. I was frustrated but am frustrated no more.
The answer is Parmesan Crisps. Spoon out about 3 tablespoons of coarsely grated parmesan cheese onto a cookie sheet, spread the cheese out into a 2 inch circle, and bake at 350 degrees for about 5-6 minutes.
Here is a picture of what they should look like.
Use a thin spatula to take them out of the pan and set them aside to cool, or fold them into the shape of a taco.
