Atkins Diet Recipe: Low Carb Mock Danish (IF) **2014 Version**

Atkins Diet Recipe: Low Carb Mock Danish (IF)
This is my first recipe redo video where I remake an old recipe I have posted previously with new recording equipment and possibly better ingredients. I remade my first recipe I ever posted to Youtube — Low Carb Mock Danish ( I originally made the video with a laptop and webcam taped to a shelf in my kitchen. It frankly got embarrassing to send people to the original.

This snack or dessert is what got me originally through my Induction period of Atkins. It is a quick easy recipe and also a great way to get flax (and hence fiber) into your diet. It may not be the prettiest of all my recipes, but what it may lack in beauty, it more than makes up for in flavor. The little bits of cream cheese and the glaze on top completes the package.

  • Great quality. Watch out Martin Scorsese, the Altena Film Crew are at your heels!

    • Thanks for the nice comments! I will pass your comments along to Brooke; she’ll be pleased. 🙂 There is always running argument in the Altena household who the best cameraperson is.

    I have checked out a few websites about Atkins. Some people are saying that the 72 version is better than the 2002 version? What is so different is it just the vegetable intake and products that they changed or is it more? I don’t want to waste time doing the 2002 version if the 72 version is what you were doing?

    • The big difference between the two is the veggies allowed during Induction (1972 was essentially just lettuce) and the concept of net carbs. I followed and still follow the 2002 version of the diet. About the only negative I have with the 2002 was his acceptance of convenience foods or low carb foods.It was no where near the current visions, and he still emphasized eating real foods. It is the 2012 versions that things really started changing for the worse IMHO.

    Hi Kent, love looking through your videos and recipes. Have a question. I do not own a microwave but utilize my toaster oven for everything! Don’t mind it being slower. If I were to make the danish, how long would it need to bake? Thanks!
