Laura Dolson over at About.com has a helpful list of low-carb veggies. Helpful if you:
- experience excessive blood sugar spikes from high-carb items
- are restricting carbs for weight management
- are eating a Paleo Diabetic diet
Laura Dolson over at About.com explains the differences and briefly discusses olive processing in a recent post.
Olives, of course, are time-honored components of the Mediterranean diet. I’ve had a few good crops in my backyard here in Arizona.

Laura Dolson at her Low Carb Diets Blog today reports on a recent study that compared micronutrient levels in three diets: Atkins, Zone, and LEARN. Visit her post for the surprising and worrisome results of this study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
[In a nutshell, “micronutrients” are important vitamins and minerals present in small amounts in our food.]
Monica Reinagel has also reviewed the study. I respect both of their opinions.
