Thanks, Di, he has already discovered those drinks

and likes them very much, especially the banana and caramel ones. He has one about 4:00PM-ish, then we have supper about 7:30-8:00. I don't think he would go for that as his meal, though.

Yeah, I'm running through the gamut of all the veggies you mentioned, plus cabbage, asparagus, eggplant, and whatever other vegetable that's in existence that I can't remember. But no corn, potatoes, sweet potatoes, beets, anything starchy or sweet.

It isn't that I don't have ways to make these things. The problem is that lots of my recipes use canned soup, pasta fillers, rice, bread crumb toppings, fried onion bits, coatings, etc. that aren't low carb friendly. And he likes lots of croutons on salads, can't do that.

I can do this; I just want it to be tasty and find ways to make all this stuff that isn't the same old thing night after night.

I did find a WONDERFUL (IMO) garlic breadstick recipe made from almond flour, and I like it better than garlic bread from wheat. It goes really well with shrimp scampi and another shrimp dish I make that's very good. And I had some leftover cooked ground beef and onions from a couple of days ago that I made a cheese sauce for, mixed it in and along with sides of guacamole, sour cream and salsa, made nachos. He used pork rinds to dip it. He liked that.

But getting back to your PET scan, like you said, who knew diet could skew the results? I hope your scan came back with good news!
