Brie, Ham and Green Apple Panini


Last week we shared Carolyn Ketchum’s wonderful low carb, gluten free flatbread recipe.  And now we have her favorite flat bread sandwich recipe to share: a low carb panini, stuffed with ham, brie and green apple.

One of the things that frustrates us most about diabetes is the feeling that you need a nap after eating lunch.  Since our work and kids do not wait for siesta we prefer to eat a very low carb lunch and avoid a blood sugar spike.  It’s much better than dragging along all afternoon.  And you know you’re in trouble when you think you just need that fifth cup of coffee.

We have a feeling that low carb flat bread paninis are going to become one of our regular lunches.
