  1. When using Low fat cream cheese and unsweetened coconut, it amounts to 8 carbs (including 1 fiber) per slice.
  2. If you have a Trader Joe's in your area, they carry both almond meal and hazelnut meal in 1 pound bags for about $1.50. Health food stores and "bulkfoods.com" also carry nut meals. I use them all the time for coating meats/fish and baking/frying them.
  3. THIS WAS GREAT!!!! However I suspect the wonderful author of this recipe might be British(?) I think the baking at 180 is for Celsius-- which I converted to 350 Fahrenheit. I made my own Almond meal by grinding up almonds (I didn't know where to find it). The 125 Grams of melted butter is about 1 Stick, and the 750 grams chream cheese is about 16 oz. I also shredded my own coconut-- because I couldn't find any that wasn't sweetened with sugar. Thank you for this wonderful cheesecake. LisaJo
  4. This recipe should perhaps be re-named-- there are carbs (yes, small amounts, but they are still there) in most of the ingredients: 12 net carbs in the 1 C. almond meal, 12 in the 1/2 cup sugar substitute, etc. There are .6 carbs in each of the eggs, and plenty in the O.J. This recipe looks delicious-- it's on my list of things to make this weekend (provided I find some time!), but I felt the need to point out that there *are* carbs present, and calling it 0-Carb Cheesecake is a little misleading (if readers don't think about the ingredients either!)-- though I wish there were such a thing as 0-carb cheesecake! *wishful smile*
  5. I can't believe there are no carbs in this! It was really, really good. I sprinkled Sugar Free Kool Aid in the filling and it gave it a nice sweet taste and made it pink.
