I'm currently counting carbs. Since I have to stay at 40 grams of carbs or less per day, it has been a challenge to find recipes that are tasty as well as low carb. Low carb living shouldn't be boring. I selected the recipes with all of the above in mind.
From the South Beach Diet Book. This is a phase I recipe. You can whip this up in about 30 seconds. It's great on everything from salads to chicken or fish. Two tbs. over a cold chicken breast and some greens makes a great SBD lunch.
My daughter despises zucchini, but my husband and I love it, so this is an easy way for us to get our "fix" and it's the perfect amount for the two of us. If I'm baking something else in the oven, I'll just put this in till the meat or whatever is done, then crank up the broiler and top it off in there. And of course, you can use more cheese or anything else you desire.
This is a great recipe to pop in the oven and go out for a walk while it cooks. Takes about 10 minutes to get it in the oven and you are on your way. Serve with a green salad and garlic bread and you are set!
I used to maintain a website called "Guide to Living Alone" which featured some good recipes for one person. This recipe is one I put together for my friend Ellen, because it was one of her favorite sidedishes at a Chinese restaurant we frequented. The little triangular foil packets of chicken were such a treat! If you double/triple/etc the recipe, it can also make good appetizers for a party, or even take-alongs for a picnic or potluck.
This one is soooooooo good! Chicken comes out super moist and tender. Another recipe from my Mom. This will be one you'll be again and again once you try it. Make sure to use the regular stuffing, not the cubed kind. This recipe works well with Perdue thin sliced chicken as well. Just depends on how thick you want the chicken to be. Sour cream and stuffing amounts are not exact. If you use more chicken you will need more of each.
Amazing flavor, and so simple! No salt needed here. In fact, you may wish to use half the ranch dressing mix to cut back on the saltiness. Found this Crock-Pot pot roast recipe on of a website called www.recipegoldmine.com. It's all the rage there, so I thought I'd try it.
This recipe comes from the restaurant "Brennan's" located in New Orleans. No one has to know how simple and quick it is. I posted this recipe exactly as it was in the book, however, if you like a little "heat" please feel free to add some cayenne pepper to taste.
