Those are some beautiful peppers, Sharon! We'll have to exchange some more stuffed pepper ideas. Great stuff! When Zim gets lots of peppers from the garden, I make them and wrap them individually and freeze a bunch so we can get out a many as we want to heat up in winter. Thanks for the photo! Greatly enhanced by the chicken hot pads. laugh

That's fantastic, Walleyehunter. Now you have me thinking. I will have to try out cauliflower potato salad. I've done the mashed potato thing and cauliflower garlic mashers, and both were good. I sure can't see why that wouldn;t work if you get the texture right. There are enough flavors in mayo, etc that would mask the cauliflower ... Thanks!

You are so welcome, MnMan! You don't need pretty plates to post your pictures here. We'd appreciate them! My goal is to make low carb my normal routine, even if I stray from it for fun. I like to dive into a bowl of pasta or rice whenever I can. eek grin

Awesome, Adam! There's some good looking stuff! Duck tacos would be really nice. What kind of tortillas do you use? (And yes, I'd be all over the white rice! Love it. Good call, Waggler!))

Thanks, Okie! I like spaghetti squash with simple butter, garlic and Parmesan cheese. Zim usually grows a few in the garden too.

Well done, Bulldozerjoe. Well done. laugh

Thank you, l1ranger! It really helps to come up with a bunch of ways to season and bake fish. It also makes an easy meal.

That's okay, Beav. When you come over for supper, I'll make you the real ones. grin

Minker is the king of low carb diets, I hope he posts some of his favorites.

How do we get recipes for some of your meals Chickie and Sharon?

That's cilantro ontop. If it was me I would've made Spanish rice instead. But that mango sauce was incredible.

Patrice those duck tacos were white corn tortillas grilled on a flat iron griddle. The other are also white corn tortillas I deep fry one at a time. I truly love blue corn tortillas. If they weren't so time consuming to make we would make them more often. We just buy them at the store and they are premade and uncooked.

On the more serious side, how about the turkey kabobs.

Nittany here's a recipe for lamb kabobs but you can use turkey.

Also here's some other recipes.

Hey, Nittany!

I know you're probably kidding on the celery, but for the celery, I bought the Skippy Creamy Natural that has no sugar added, and then thin it out a little more with either canola or olive oil. That will reduce the carbs and make it easier to dip celery in. I wouldn't add raisins - they have a lot of carbs.

The wild turkey kabobs are the ones we make for the conventions (but I assume you knew that) and I have a low carb version that is great. I'll dig up that recipe for you and post it.

Adam, I'm still curious if you had some kind of low carb tortillas for those duck tacos? That would be great.

Give it a couple more weeks and when you have that toast you will wonder why you ever missed it. Once you have been off the carbs for about 6 to 8 weeks the high carb foods just don't taste that good anymore. I think we have been led into carb addictions with sugar and other high carb foods just to make the big food companies money.

Low calorie meals are great. But, if others are like me, it is the snacks in between that pack on the pounds. Since I am always on the road I was looking for something that:
  • Was low in calories
  • Wasn't too perishable over a 12 hour or longer day
  • Was easy to grab and eat.
  • Was satisfying in small quantities
One of my first thoughts was a hard boiled egg. True it was tasteless. True it really should be refrigerated.

Now, my everyday snack is a smoked hard cooked egg. One at 1:00PM, and another at 4:00PM. At 80 calories they are plenty satisfying and plenty tasty.

Prepare by:
  • covering the raw eggs in a pan with 1" of cold water
  • bring to a boil
  • cover and turn off heat for 10 minutes.
  • remove eggs from hot water and place in ice water for another 10 minutes.
  • If you've done this right the eggs shells now come off like a prom dress.
  • Sprinkle the eggs with a good seasoning like Mortons®seasoning salt, or your own concoction.
  • smoke at 150° for 20-30 minutes, or cold smoke for about an hour.
The only caveat is not to smoke to hot or too long, or the eggs will develop a tough outer layer that isn't all that pleasant to chew.

Hats off to you too, Rick! I hear ya on the toast. You might want to check for lower carb breads at your grocery store. The best ones we have are from Village Hearth for 6 net grams of carbs per slice. Once you get settled in, you might be able to add one piece of toast without a lot of net carbs. After you've been away from the bread for a while, that one piece of toast will seem like a lot. Your tastes will change like Coolstucco said. Good luck!

Way to go, Bruce! Some whole fruits aren't too bad for carbs, but fruit juices are usually pretty bad. It still sounds like you're sure gettin' the job done, so good for you!

Adam, if you have any brand names to share for low carb tortillas, I would like to check to see if they sell them anywhere online. The only soft tortillas I buy right now are these for 6 net grams of carbs each:



Any more tortilla ideas would be great! And here's another thought: I've taken a low carb tortilla and baked it long enough to make it a little dry, then sprinkled cheddar cheese, diced tomatoes and diced onions on it and baked it longer to make a cheese crisp. That's not a bad late night snack!

Okay, T-Rex! If you had my free range chickens you could never think a pure steamed egg was tasteless, but for store-bought eggs, smoking sounds like a nice twist! I love that you don't boil them, but turn off the heat and let them sit to cook in hot water. That ice water at the end really helps with the shells. the fresher the egg, the harder it is to peel. Good stuff! Thanks!

I don't know what world you live in, but my chickens produce a nice tasty fried egg, but still a tasteless hard cooked one.
