My low carb soup for diabetics

My son has been diagnosed with diabetes so I've made him some soup. I don't know much about footy but make awesome soup
1 medium onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

100g don shaved champagne ham or turkey bacon ( turkey bacon has 1/2 the carbs as ham)

1 sprinkle black pepper

8 cups water

2 turnips cut into small cubes

2 cup frozen peas

2 medium stick celery

2 carrots

Heat the oil in a large pot, add the chopped onion and garlic, cook till soft over a medium heat.

Stir in the chopped celery, ham / turkey, peas, carrots and turnips

Add the water, and black pepper.

Bring to the boil then reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour stirring occasionally, until carrots, turnips and celery are tender.

You can add any other vegetables you like. Remember veggies that grow above ground are mostly low carb and below ground are mostly high carb.

  • Did you get a message I was gettig deperate for new soup recipes Slugg.

    Tomorrow nights dinnier - thanks.

    What type of diabetes mate? 1,2 or what?

    • The one that is not as bad as the other one. 

    • Sounds like type 2 - which can often (but certainly not always) be reversable Sluggy - especially with the right diet and excercise.

      This isn't for you Col - carbs mate. Lots of carbs. Carbs, carbs and more carbs.

      #carbthefuckup   :)

      Actually, I just read Slugg's recipe - it sounds outstanding. Go for it, but finish up with either a Magnum or Maxi Bon :)

       

      • Jnr, is going to have the tummy tuck he wants to drop about 60 kilo. He a big bastard like his old man used to be. 

        • Good stuff mate. I've got a mate up in Hervey Bay who had one about 8 weeks? ago ..... He's lost about 25 kilos already. I was talking to him last Friday, said he still loves his food, just can't and doesn't want to eat as much..

        • A good mate of mine who has always been really overweight had the procedure done maybe 6 months ago. He got diagnosed with type 2 diabetes a few years ago. He was telling me there’s a correlation between getting the surgery done and a reduction in the effects of diabetes? I have no idea but he’s lost a shit load of weight and looks good.

        • I dropped 50 kgs and reversed type 2 diabetes via the Keto diet.I hate to tell you that although I'm sure it is delicious ,in no way is it low carb.Turnips,peas and carrots are starches and high in carbs.I did keto strictly for 3 years along with intermittent fasting and no sugar, now I eat rice and very occasionally have dessert.I have restarted training in Olympic Weightlifting ,which I competed in until 1989..I retired due to bad knees.Recently,I matched some of my personal best lifts at 54 years of age, from 1986.It is an awesome feeling outlifting blokes half your age.It also helps to stop their wingeing.Even the knees are holding up as my legs are bigger than Junior Paulo's.

          • Tom, It's low carb not no carb. Turnips have half the carbs as potato but you can leave out or add anything you choose. No soup for you 

            • They have less carbs than potatoes true,but they are still quite high.Mushrooms ,asparagus and broccolini could be substituted .

              • And it would be just as jummy
