The Quickest Cauliflower Rice I Know

Wednesday, January 27th, 2016

Cauliflower is a very user friendly low carb veggie.  And cauliflower rice  (small chopped pieces of cauliflower) is a staple in many low carb households, including mine. In the beginning we had tried hand chopping the cauliflower or using my little personal food processor (way too small).  I needed to use the full sized processor […]

Low Carb Easter Brunch

Sunday, April 5th, 2015

Stopped by my local neighborhood friendly organic farm and picked up some fresh eggs yesterday.  And I made some Easter brunch this morning, low-carb style. Now, even if Easter isn’t your cup of tea, it can colloquially also be thought of as a celebration of Spring and all that comes with it in the Northern Hemisphere […]

Low Carb Menu Options

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

Years ago, I posted a low carb menu that I still use and have used to help me get started eating low carb.  It’s a very basic, simple menu.  Nothing fancy, nothing involving 22 steps and 6 hours in the kitchen cookin over a hot stove. But it still works.  It’s totally low carb, whole food, Atkins […]

Low Carb Vegan Recipe

Saturday, June 9th, 2012

For Day 1 and my first meal on this Low Carb Vegan adventure, I made simple lentils. Lentils are actually pretty net low carb (when you subtract out the fiber).  One serving of lentils (1/2 cup dry) is only 18 grams of net carbs (40 g of carbs MINUS 22 gram of fiber).  They are also high in protein.  That one […]

A New CookingTemperature For Pork

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

Want to know how to safely get a juicier pork roast? For years, we’ve been told to cook Pork to an internal temperature of 160 F.  But recently the USDA revisited that idea in some new tests and found out that we now only need to cook pork to 145 F.  And at 145 it […]

Easy Flax-Mustard Sauce

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

A very quick and simple mustard sauce.  I use this to add a little more flavor to chicken or pork and to get more flax oil into my diet.  Sometimes chicken can get a little boring and no matter what you do to it, it still tastes like chicken.  So that’s when I break out this […]

Southwestern Chicken | Low Carb Dinner Recipe

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

What’s for dinner tonight?  In honor of Cinco De Mayo, I went Southwestern.  And would have topped it off with a nice guacamole, but there were no ripe avocados at the grocery store – maybe next time. Ingredients: 1 Chicken Breast – Grilled 2 Tblsp Black Bean and Corn Salsa 1 Chipotle Pepper 1/4 Cup […]

Happy Cinco De Mayo

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

Cinco De Mayo (May 5th) is a Mexican holiday primarily celebrated in the US.  Apparently it’s based on a victorious battle of the Mexican Army over the French.  I doubt the French pay much attention to this ‘holiday’.  It has become simply more of a recognition of Mexican heritage here in the US. Anyway, Mexican […]

How many carbs in a tomato?

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

Are tomatoes on the low carb diet woks plan?  Absolutely.  Even though they are technically considered a fruit, tomatoes are a-ok to eat on a low carb diet. One large tomato has about 5 grams of net carbs.  So you could easily add half a tomato to any meal/serving.  One tomato slice only adds about 1 […]

Simple Chicken and Veggies

Wednesday, April 20th, 2011

Eating low carb doesn’t have to be hard.  Nor does it need to involve complicated recipes.  Some of the best food I’ve eaten is very simple and easy to make.  And it tastes good.  For example: Chicken with California Veggies 3 – 4 Chicken Breasts 1 Package of Frozen California Veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots) Spices (Salt, […]
