Nice "sweet" treat when you are craving something not so savory.
A nutty alternative to regular pancakes
Yummy alternative to higher carb versions.
A Family Favorite! Delicious, packed with protein and flavor!
Yummy and packed with protein! These make a great addition to a sack lunch, snack or protein pick me up before or after a workout.
These are super easy to make, yummy and very filling!
These have been a favorite of our family's for years. Anyone I make it for raves about them and it is so easy to make!
I've adapted a few recipes to make this version. You can also mix in bacon, green onions, or add roasted garlic to make a garlic mashed potato version. If you want a delicious creamy soup base, thin it out with a bit of cream until desired consistency.
I've adapted this from a few different recipes. These came out light and fluffy and surprisingly good.
These are great for breakfast or as a treat. Only 3 carbs per muffin
Pumpkin adds a few extra carbs, but it is a nice treat now and then. May tweak this a bit more to get the carb count down a bit.
This is delicious! Original Recipe found at http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Jamies-Cranbe
rry-Spinach-Salad/Detail.aspx. I may add some feta cheese next time to bulk up the protein a bit. I also changed the sugar to splenda since I'm low-carbing. Other low carb dieters may want to cut the cranberries in half.
The Protein in this veggie meal makes it another no guilt veg for bariatric dieters. Very simple to make and delicious
These are kind of carby, but delicious! The added protein from the bacon makes this a no-guilt side for bariatric dieters.

Ok, so this isn't for the low fat dieters obviously, but it is awesome for the low carb dieters! I'm going to try serving this over mock cauliflower rice http://lowcarbdiets.about.com/od/lowcarbsi
dedishes/r/caulirice.htm or tofu shirataki noodles.
Great Asian Salmon recipe I originally found at http://sushifabush.tumblr.com/post/1213960
Has a bit of sugar so can be a bit carby, but still a tasty option.
Like the fried rice, this is made with shredded cauliflower and tastes very much like spanish/mexican rice. Goes great with the Chili Relleno Casserole
This heated up fine the next day, but not sure it would last too much longer than that.
Easy, Yummy and low carb. If you want to reduce the carb count, reduce the amount of chili's you use by half. I've made it both ways and it tastes fine either way
These are all the rage on various low carb forums. I made them last night and was really pleased with them as a substitute for french fries. Cook them until they are somewhat crispy on the outside. They may blacken a bit, you don't want them to burn though.

-Blue-Burgers/Detail.aspx . This is a very tasty low-carb hamburger patty.
I originally got this recipe from http://sushifabush.tumblr.com/post/1213960
r-fried-rice and it looks great. Making it tonight. Looks like a GREAT alternative to rice for low carbers
These pancakes are truly packed with protein and net carb count is 8.7 carbs!!
A little bit of homemade, a little bit not. Makes for a meaty hearty spaghetti sauce that is great for spaghetti, ricotta bake, and more.
This is a delicious low carb entree topped with your favorite spaghetti sauce.
Great Low Carb dish
Great tasting low-carb twist on salmon patties. High protein count for bariatric dieters.
