Enjoying Food Without High Carbs
(These pages are still being fleshed out, so check back later for more info.)
In the low-carb food world, there is a lot of really bad-tasting stuff
out there. I've tried a bunch of different things, so hopefully this
experience can help you find some stuff that you'll like to eat.
Let me start off by saying that the vast majority of my eating involves
whole foods such as meat, vegetables, cheese, and legumes combined into
fun/easy meals. But anyone can find chicken, broccoli, green beans, etc., etc.
without coming here, so let's get to some of the more interesting foods that
you may not know about.
Good Things For Those Craving Carbs
Bread – Don't let folks tell you that you
can't eat bread on a low-carb diet. I prefer to avoid ones with soy flour
in order to provide a better taste and texture.
Carbquik bake mix – Unlike other
soy-filled bake mixes, this one has real wheat flour, but somehow the fiber
cooks like starch (or the starch digests like a fiber?). This means that it
makes some really great-tasting baked goods.
Pasta – Don't hurry past this one, even if
you've had some really horrific low-carb pastas in the past. That's
because this pasta is so good you can serve it to your high-carb friends
without even needing to tell them that it's low in carbs.
Pasta sauce – I've been reading pasta
sauce labels lately, and I've found a few good ones with no more than 5
carbs per serving.
Progresso makes some low-carb soups that are pretty good. I like to
tweak each one a little, such as adding more meat or veggies.
One quite good breakfast cereal I've tried is the Low-carb Special K.
This is more of a "medium carb" food, but it's quite nice as a change from
Recipes I Like to Make
Bacon Cheeseburger Salad – This is one
of my favorite salads to make at home.
Garlic Cheese Biscuits – This is my modified version
of the Carbquik cheese biscuits (my version is cheesier and easier to make).
Cream-Cheese Coffee Cake – This is super scrumptious
because it uses Carbquik.
Pound Cake – See a couple of my favorite
recipes for making low-carb pound cake.
