Vicky's Favorite Low Carb-Low Fat Recipes

I had Adjustable Gastric Band surgery on 9/15/08 and will be gearing my new healthy lifestyle toward low carb and low fat recipes. My goal will be less than 5g fat, less than 5g sugar per serving, and high protein.

Here are some of the ones I want to try, or have already tried.
