Atkins Diet Recipes: Low Carb Puppy Chow (E-IF or OWL)


Atkins Diet Recipes: Low Carb Puppy Chow (E-IF or OWL)

My son Brett recently started the Atkins Diet and has lost 17 pounds in 3 or 4 weeks on the diet. It has been remarkably simple for him — even dealing with school lunches. We prepare a couple lunches as week for him, and he eats deli sandwiches (no bread) or salads with eggs and meat for when he eats at school. This was one of his first low carb items he prepared himself, and it turned out really well. Puppy chow was one of his past favorites, and now he has a good low carb conversion for it.

    Excellent snack. Great job Brett.

    Hey Brett,

    Tried it and liked it. Really hit the spot since I like chocolate and peanut butter together. Reminds me of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups when I eat them years ago.

    Thanks,
