My favorite bacon

Friday, June 7th, 2013

Over the years I’ve tried a lot of bacon.  A lot!  In fact, I should probably just buy one of those “I love bacon” t-shirts.  Or maybe bumper sticker.  Or even get a tattoo – because my love for bacon ain’t gonna change this lifetime.  It’s perfect as a low carb snack (my favorite is with a […]

Nori for a crunchy low carb snack

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

Nori seaweed might not be the first thing that comes to mind as a fun crunchy low carb snack alternative, but it’s worth trying.  Especially if you like sushi.  Nori is a type of seaweed and comes in sheets.  By itself, it’s not all that great. But Trader Joes offers a snackable version that they import […]

Cheating on low carb

Sunday, December 12th, 2010

Cheating on low carb?  That’s funny.  It’s better than cheating on your spouse.  Or cheating on a test.  But there are consequences. For me, low carb is a choice.  I choose to eat low carb, because I want to lose a fair amount of weight.  And nothing else seems to work for me like eating low […]

Carbs in common snack foods

Monday, November 15th, 2010

Most commercially made snack foods are essentially just empty calories.  The only real benefit is any emotional / sugarholic cravings that they might satisfy. But most are incredibly high in carbs.  And when you are making an effort to go low carb, these snacks just aren’t on the menu.  So let’s a take a quick […]
