Can you just keep the no sugar added Smuckers jam in the house? Also keep
lots of Wasa or Ryevita in plae of all those english muffins. Then he can
have peanut butter and jelly if he likes.

I have also found the Arnold bakery carb bread pretty good and infinitely
better than the "light" breads which are so insubstantial that they don't
satisfy. the Arnold I get has 9 grams of carb per slice, 3 fiber for 6
grams net and tastes pretty good and has some heft.
