Made these similar to Cinnamon Muffins, Low Carb - except, I added spaghetti squash, and protein powder, and subbed some of the oil for apple sauce.
This is my Cinnamon Muffins minus the cinnamon, with zuchinni ;) Pretty tasty!
Here's my favorite adult libation! Very light and tasty - I don't feel like I'm missing a thing ;)
This is great on my Cinnamon Muffins ;)
This recipe is adapted from a recipe Giada De Laurentiis did on the food network. I have changed it quite a bit, and my family really likes these.
This is from Elana's Pantry. I only changed the oil I used and the syrup, and left out the cloves, and used canned pumpkin.
This is a savory version of my Low-Carb Cinnamon Muffins, and these make a very tasty sandwich or hamburger bun.
Made this at Christmas-time to complement the big pot of Gumbo my brother-in-law made. I just threw it together at the time, so I'm guessing at the ratios, but I figure there's no way to really mess this up ;)
This is my favorite dressing EVER, so far (I say that every year ;) I think the bread was the key this time, because it was dense enough to maintain it's shape and not go all mushy like Grandma's did when made with white bread. It got good reviews from family ;)
This is an incredible recipe! Because of the Oat Fiber, it does have a high carb count, but every single carb is fiber, so the net carb count is ZERO from the oat fiber.
This recipe will give you one moist, puffy, spongy, flavorful bun that will hold together and won't taste like you just bit into crumbling cardboard. But the best part? It only takes a few minutes to make. This one's a winner.
These are great little treats that have protein and not much sugar at all, though they are as sweet as you'd expect a fudge pop to be. Very good substitute that will get the kids off the sugar roller-coaster!
Wow, this is tasty stuff! I love to put a tablespoon on top of a warm low-carb pancake or muffin. Very decadent yet perfect for a lower carb way of life. You gotta try this if you want to feel indulged while cutting out unhealthy simple carbs and unhealthy fats (read the label on Cool Whip sometime, and promise me you'll never eat it again!)
This is great over Dreamfields Pasta ;)
from Lindasue, adapted for me ;)
This is low-carb and dairy-free, and is delicious on my Cinnamon Muffins ;)
I credit this recipe with saving my diet! And each muffin only contains about 5g of Net Carbs (net carbs is total carbs - fiber.)
From Amanda: After making alanaspantry.com AMAZING Cinnamon Bun Muffins, the thought occurred to me that maybe I could combine some of that recipe (the muffins were sooo light and fluffy) with Alana's bread 2.0 recipe. This basically involved subbing in some coconut flour for a little of the almond flour, adding a little oil, and cutting back on the arrowroot powder.
The result was fantastic!! The bread turned out to be about as light and fluffy as "normal" bread, and it also very moist. I know that bread texture is all about personal preference, so I thought I would share this hybrid recipe in case anyone else is looking for a more traditional bread. (I personally prefer a more dense bread - but I'll do anything to get my man to kick that wheat habit :)
This is the best version yet!
This bread even passed muster with my picky (grown) kids - now that's something!
This is dang near perfect, but I will be tweaking it a bit more...I made it first w/out brown sugar, then tried a little brown sugar on my plate w/the first patty, and it really brought out the flavors - esp. the fennel seed.
This is excellent using only self rising flour, but too high in carbs. Hence, replacing 1.5 cups of that with Almond Flour.
Here's pretty good muffin!
I make this and divide it between 6 12 oz. jelly jars, so it' s easy to take one to work and warm it in the microwave.
**Protein=39.8%, Fat=35.1%, Carbs=25.2% ** This is a good low-carb ratio (The Zone Diet is 30, 30, 40)
This is a low-carb breakfast casserole, different from the norm because it has no dairy, uses ground turkey sausage, contains healthful quinoa, and is baked in individual serving jelly or canning jars. The quinoa is nice because of it's nutritional value, and it holds moisture well and keeps the dish from being too dry (I used to depend on cheese to do this ;)
Great for lower carb diets
These are the BEST turkey burgers I've ever had. The Quinoa really keeps the moisture in, and the flavors are great with 1000 Island Dressing.
This is a lovely light dressing, and goes well on a salad with grapefruit quarters.
These are amazingly good, and so easy to grab and go!
This recipe is from Laura Dolson on About.com
This stuff tastes great on mac salad. I cook one pound of elbow macaroni, dice up multi-colored bell peppers, and toss together with this dressing. Many have requested the recipe after eating it :)
This is my favorite deviled egg recipe. Yummy! You can prepare as a salad as I do here, or you can just halve the eggs and mash the yolks into the mayo mixture and stuff that in the egg white shells for traditional deviled eggs. Tastes the same either way!
This sandwich is stacked tall, but only uses one oblong piece of bread that is cut in half.
SalsaMayo is my favorite salad dressing, but this light version has twice the amount of picante sauce as I usually put in. (Usually my ratio is 1 part picante and 1 part salsa.)
This is a nice treat even on the strict phase of the HCG diet :)
Excellent for some comfort-food feel, good over meat or veggies
