Atkins Diet Recipe: Low Carb Faux Mac N’ Cheese (IF)

Atkins Diet Recipe: Low Carb Faux Mac N’ Cheese (IF)
I announced a change in my YouTube channel in this video. I am now planning to release two videos a week if possible (not traveling) — one new recipe video and one other video (redone old recipe on new equipment, product review, educational video, or just simply a vlog or commentary). I have a backlog of new recipe ideas that should last until April or May. Let me know what you think in the comments.

One of the biggest problems for new low carbers is what to pair with their main dish, Often times, they’ll end up defaulting to lettuce salads or simply vegetables with butter.By having a rough chop of the cauliflower, the intention is to have the texture of macaroni in this dish and a great flavor from the cheese sauce. My kids love this recipe a lot, and often I have to make a double batch if I want to have any.

    first, I just love all your recipes, but the sound is better I have a hearing problem and before it was a very fuzzy sound but no problem now keep on cooking your a star.

    It’s so good to see you back. I thought we’d lost you forever. I regularly recommend your videos to people needing to reduce carbs to deal with health problems (especially mental/emotional stuff).

    One question, did you manage to get a handle on blocking nasty comments on Youtube?

    • Yes, thankfully Youtube fixed their whole comment system. It actually is pretty easy now to prevent all the garbage or spam comments. The process that used to take 30-45 minutes daily sometimes is now down to less than 5-10 minutes a week.

  • Yes yes yes. Re-mastering old videos is definitely a winner. Sometimes it’s difficult to find the old stuff too, so it’s very useful. (Plus the new recipe, of course).

    • Well I just filmed my first replacement video — Mock Danish, so it should be a good test how well these replacement videos are received. Mock Danish recipe was my first recipe video that I posted, so I thought it appropriate it was my first redo. I think it turned out much better than the original 7 minute exercise.
