Lightbulb Dried plantain chips -- healthy RS starch

Not bad, just don't eat the whole bag at one sitting (45 carbs) First time I coated with olive oil and baked at 350*F for 15 min on a side, were OK but tough as a rawhide chew. This batch, no oil, slice diagonally, dry in convection toaster oven overnight on bake. Should hopefully turn out like the chips from Whole Paycheck
One ripe Plantain yields ~20 chips 45 net carbs or 14 / oz dried

Note: consumption at night can cause lucid dreaming. That's the ability to consciously observe and/or control your vivid dreams. With lucid dreams, you are always asleep in bed. And if you want to, you can wake yourself up.
Tibetan Monks have used dream control for more than a thousand years, in the philosophy of dream yoga.

Talked to a afriend today about resistant starch--- she has never heard of this. She is a lifelong type 1 diabetic that controls her blood glucose very well.

My wife's bg was higher this morning (she's been eating plantain chips the last couple days along with me - she has T2D). Going to have to cut back so she will too.

Found this:

7 Reasons to Add Plantains to Your Diet (#5 Will Make You Think)

this link loads sometimes...

http://healthyeating.sfgate.com/green-plantain-raise-blood-sugar-11320.html

Because plantains have a high carbohydrate content and glycemic load, they can raise blood sugar. (17) Those with diabetes should be aware of pairing plantains with other foods that can raise blood sugar levels.

Fried some today that were almost ripe. Good, perhaps too good! Frying is better than baking or drying IMO but higher in calories.
Would put them in the class with sweet potato fries that I had to give up because they were so more-ish

My potato starch arrived today and I ordered some plain "Tiger Nuts" to experiment with next

Ill check my BG at 4:30 PM, thanks for the tip dT

Tried the frying with sliced yam or sweet potato. Don't bother. Unlike plantains they didn't come out crisp, but soggy. Same oil, even hotter temp and longer cooking time. Commercial sweet potato 'fries' are coated with starch and sugars to make em crisp up when deep fried or baked still frozen.

Plantain fries soon will get like a cold French fry if not served straight away

Perhaps all these test failures will make for some good dog treats? ^..^

My "Judees" potato starch was a huge bag 2.5 lb It mixes well with water, and has a hint of raw potato taste going down. No ill effects from it so far. Likely is feeding the kefir in my gut right now!
