Low Carb Jicama Chips

I have been testing and experimenting with jicama as a low carb conversion food for potatoes. Like someone said in the comments, a low carb french fry seems to be the holy grail. I have not been able to arrive at an acceptable conclusion. These chips however are pretty tasty and nice addition.

Nut flours – what are they good for?

What are nut flours good for? Absolutely something! Say it again!

In this video, I just wanted to detail how easy it was to grind your own nut flours since most grocery stores do not carry them or they are much more expensive than their whole counterparts. Trader Joe’s happens to carry almond flour […]

Atkins Diet Recipes: Low Carb Chicken Pot Pie

When I was growing up around age 6 or 7, I burned my leg pretty bad on a chicken pot pie as it flipped over on to it. It was at least second degree burn, and I honestly didn’t have chicken pot pie or any pot pie for 15+ years after that. It was […]

Weed or delicious “Induction Friendly” fruit / vegetable? Low Carb Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

I was inspired to make this favorite dessert of my Grandma by another low carb blog, called “All day I dream about Food.” (http://bit.ly/goEXXr) I updated it to be similar to my grandma’s recipe, and my wife and kids loved it. It goes really well with the whipped cream I prepared in my last […]

No Chinese on Atkins Diet – Pshaw! Low Carb Sweet n’ Sour Chicken recipe

You think of typical Chinese foods, and you often think of breaded deep fried pieces of meat with overdone vegetables submerged in a corn starch-filled sauce that has enough simple carbs to cause glycemic shock. Before Atkins, I would have been in bliss by this thought and readily had a second or third helping […]

Atkins Diet in the kitchen — Low Carb Whipped Cream (IF)

In another one of my quick how to videos in the kitchen ( here are the last ones), I wanted to provide any newbies who hadn’t yet seen the ease of making your own whipping cream and also remind all those veterans of another tool to put in your arsenal of great meals. While […]

On the hook – Cellcom Green Bay Marathon

With the marathon registration already above 95%, I could not dawdle any longer in making my mind up which Spring Marathon I was going to do. This morning I was honestly convinced that I was going to do the Lincoln Marathon because Laura could not get off work. With no race day packet pickup, […]

Frustration and motivation…

I am going to paraphrase someone’s posting to an online Atkins forums.

I did so good all day today. Then I went out for supper at a local restaurant and couldn’t resist the noodles and the dessert that the nice wait staff bought for me.

It is a post like the one above that just […]

Last Super Bowl recipe: Low Carb Stuffed Mushrooms (IF)

Atkins Diet Recipes: Stuffed Mushrooms

I’ll be the first one to admit that I am not a big mushroom fan, and I’ll pick it off my pizza if we get one with it on. My wife and eldest daughter wanted it, and it sounded like a recipe appropriate for the Super Bowl. They both […]

Life in NuVal Universe…

I was strolling through Hy-Vee earlier today looking for chicharrones, and I just so happened to be surprised by what Nuval had ranked Corn Tortillas on their recommendation. For those unaware what the NuVal scoring system is:

The NuVal™ System scores food on a scale of 1-100. The higher the NuVal™ Score, […]
