Atkins Induction-Friendly Favorites

A collection of tried and true low carb faves and some recipes I created or tweaked, plus a few from other Sparks folks that sound good. All should be very "legal" on Atkins induction with the caveat that some need minor substitutions to be truly low carb, but it's only ever one obvious ingredient.

Cookbook creator says: To make this induction-friendly, sub mayo for yogurt in chicken marinade, and plain coconut yogurt for sauce. Could also try kefir.

Grilled Mediteranean Ahi Tuna

Cookbook creator says: Variation - Pan Seared - I make in a high end nonstick pan & use FROZEN steaks - really sears the fish to a beautiful brown without overcooking. Serve it sliced & fanned out on round serving platter - decorate w/sliced lemon, fresh herbs, steamed asparagus stalks, etc. Fantastic dish, super quick!

Cookbook creator says: Basic spinach kugel. Would be better with fresh baby spinach that was steamed in microwave just until wilted, would avoid all the water issues.

Cookbook creator says: Reduce salt to 1 tsp. Use parchment paper to line the pan for no sticking and super easy cleanup. Other white fish can be cooked this way, just make sure it has a similar texture and thickness to withstand cooking time.

Cookbook creator says: Nix breadcrumbs for induction. I use flax, but some people without dairy issues use parmesan. Avoiding carrots on induction? Sub with celery, spinach, string beans, etc. Portion size is unrealistic - 12 servings from a 2-lb. meatloaf? Adjust your counts according to what you ACTUALLY eat. :-)

Low Carb Cranberry Muffins
Very Good 4.5/5
(22 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: I do both flax & cranberry on induction - no problems staying in ketosis & losing, but know your own body. To reduce the sour precook fresh cranberries in a covered microwave dish just until tender, then coat them with sweetener. To make cranberry orange muffins, add a tbsp. of fresh orange zest.

Zuccini Gratin
Very Good 4.8/5
(19 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: This also makes a great frittata or quiche - simply add 6 beaten eggs, double the cheese (put on top of everything) and cook at 350 for 45 mins. to an hour. You can use a pie plate or round pyrex, but I always line mine with parchment paper for easy cleanup and transfer to storage.

Cookbook creator says: Any kind of white fish fillet will work for this recipe, but be careful it's the same thin cut as tilapia! A thicker fish will be raw in the middle when the spice rub is blackened, or by the time the fish is cooked, the blackened coating will be burnt.

This was very good and much easier than stuffing the cheese into the chiles, but with pretty much the same flavor of the traditional method. If you don't care for hot food, you could use plain Monterey jack cheese instead of the pepper-jack. For myself I added more pepper. You can see Linda's receipe at;
