Recipes I've Shared:
I adapted this from a recipe I found online at Wholesome YUM (https://www.wholesomeyum.com/recipes/broc
coli-cheese-soup-low-carb-gluten-free/ ). I like a bit more flavor in my soups, so I added ground mustard, white pepper, and salt. If you, like me, need a good portion of protein with every meal, you'll like this recipe. I serve it with 3 oz of Tyson or Johnsonville's ready grilled chicken strips (1/2 a bag, not included in calculations). Just heat the chicken in the bowl and add 1 cup of soup on top. This is a great winter treat of a meal and I like to make one big pot and have it each day for lunch for a week.
My son and I just tried guava for the first time and loved it! It tastes a bit like a spicy apple. This smoothie is my way of sharing our new favorite fruit with my son as an afternoon snack. You can use any protein powder you want, or skip it if you don't need the protein.
I adapted this recipe from Tova's Carbquik recipe page at http://www.tovaindustries.com/carbalose/re
cipe2.php?c=99 . Their recipe calls to make eight scones, but I felt those were too big. i make them into about 10, but you can make them smaller if you want fewer calories per scone. One thing I absolutely love about these is that they are high in fiber!
Shakshuka is an Israeli dish often eaten for brunch or breakfast. It is typically meatless with more vegetables, but I have added mild Italian chicken sausage for extra protein. It's easy and delicious! All you need is a good 12-in cast iron or otherwise oven-safe skillet.
This is one of the easiest recipes I have that always makes my husband happy. I use my own coffee rub, which you can find here: https://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-det
This rub is great for steaks, pork chops, chicken or other meats. It makes a big jar of it. I use about 1/6th of it for four steaks.
I extrapolated this recipe from Destination Delish's recipe for Paleo peach cobbler. http://www.destinationdelish.com/slow-cook
I was looking for something more interesting than my regular boring chocolate shake. So tonight I found a recipe from wellplated.com that looked good. I changed a few things up--replaced the Greek yogurt with ricotta cheese ('cause I didn't have yogurt). Enjoy!
This crust is perfect for those on a high-protein, low-carb diet.

A quick and easy casserole with just three ingredients! It reheats really well, too. I like to divide and wrap each portion separately so I can grab it and take it to work.
Easy conversion from a peanut butter recipe I saw online.
I adapted this from a paleo recipe online. It's most definitely NOT paleo now! This is adapted to fit into my diabetic husband's diet.
This is something I made up after bariatric surgery.
This is a slight makeover of Giada's crab salad recipe on FoodNetwork. I remade it for a smaller portion since I'm not serving at a party and using more affordable crab meat.
This low-carb recipe came about due to a quick five-minute spot I saw on television yesterday. Iron Chef Mike Symon was talking to one of the Chopped judges (Amanda) did a quick and dirty beef stew with the wine and beer. I took that and made it into something my men would enjoy. I hope you enjoy it, too. I replaced the potatoes with carrots to lower the glycemic load for a lower-carb dish.
