Low Carb / Keto recipes
Ok so, I know a lot of people may be put off by the name, but if you're on a low carb diet, and you need something sweet asap, this is for you. They really are good, and they're 0 net carbs per serving! I usually have one every day for breakfast, and it has most of your daily recommended fiber intake. And you can have one in about 2 minutes. You can change out the extracts as you like,. Wedding cake flavor? Use almond extract. You can use lemon, or butter or any flavor really.
So here's another Low Carb favorite around the house. It's all the best parts of a cheeseburger, minus all of the carbs! And to be honest, I don't even miss the bread. Of course if you want bread you can certainly serve it on bread, or egg waffles even. It's ready from start to finish in about an hour.
If there's one thing that is my favorite in the grocery store, it's rotisserie chicken. They're Keto / Low Carb friendly and delicious. I used to grab one every time I went shopping just because they're sooooo easy. And they really do seem like a bargain, until you do the math. In the store where I shop, they're 8.99. Seems like a good deal right? BUT, I can buy a whole chicken from the butcher for about 3.50. AND it's about 2 pounds larger. So it's a no brainer.
Eating low carb does not mean you have to give up the things you love, you just have to change your approach and make a few modifications. I LOVE cheeseburgers, probably the reason I'm having to do low carb now, but here is an easy way to get your cheeseburger fix. They taste great, and I've been eating low carb for about a month now. I really don't even miss the bread that much. What I do miss is adding as much seasoning as I want, seasonings have carbs. Can you believe that?
So here in Louisiana EVERYTHING is eaten over rice. However, I am on a low carb / keto "lifestyle change", otherwise known as a diet. So while my husband and daughter get to eat rice, I have to improvise. I've seen cauliflower mash made on various websites, usually full of bacon and cheese. While equally delicious, I need something that I can eat with roast, to substitute for the rice. More like plain mashed potatoes. So here is the recipe that I'm currently using as my substitute. It's pretty easy and tasty too.
