READY TO LAUNCH THE WEBSITE

Are the words I'm dying to say!!!!!!!!  LOL.  I have been slowly, painstakingly piecing my website together.  It will be a few months yet.  However, I think I'm only days away from registering the domain name.  I have created a yummy pecan pie and now have a list of the recipes I have yet to create before I launch my site.  It would be so easy to just use established recipes on the web, but I am dedicated to having fewer, but very specific and original recipes on my site.  This may be foolish, but it's my vision, my passion.  I have yet to find a site or source for recipes that incorporate my ideal mix of goals:
*No FATS (except those from nuts and chocolate and eggs)
*Low Sodium
*NO REFINED/SIMPLE SUGARS
*NO REFINED OR SIMPLE CARBS (like White flour)
*Only "GOOD" (or Complex) Carbs
I am using Bean and nut flours instead of wheat and agave and erithritol instead of sugar.  I would like to explore the use of stevia and include those recipes as well.
Mostly the "Diabetic" Recipes I find use REAL SUGAR or sugar substitutes, but Fats like butter, margarine, shortining and oil and white flour.  I think my way of thinking isn't really popular. I think that's because it borrows from several different philosophies.  I believe in MUFA's (Katrina please add a comment that explains this better) which stands for Mono-Unsaturated Fatty Acids (I think).   Like nuts and chocolate and avocados and olives.  But I do not believe in adding any other form of fat at all!  I believe in having some carbs, but "good carbs".  A good portion to me is 15 grams perserving of complex carbs.  The source being a grain or low glycemic indexed sweetener, nut, soy and non fat milk, non fat cream cheese or non fat yogurt (okay, I could have just said Non-fat Dairy!).  Does anyone know what you would call this combination of philosophies?  For me it is addressing my major health concerns, Diabetes and obesety.
