If you don't low carb baking mix (which I keep meaning to order from Netrition.com) you can make mock pancakes using eggs as the base. These are actually pretty good and very simple to make! Top it off with some sugar free syrup!


LC Apple Vanilla Honey Nut Chicken Salad

This chicken salad is amazing! I totally made it up one day while craving something sweet and my husband was craving chicken salad. Low carbbers and non low carbbers alike can enjoy this! I'm all about convenience so I use canned chicken, but by all means use fresh chicken if you want! I eat it plain, straight from the bowl after its been chilled, my hubby likes it wrapped in a fresh croissant.


Omelette Muffins


These are super easy to make. They are such a great LC breakfast, especially for on the go people! Make a batch on Sunday and you'll have a pop in the microwave quick breakfast or snack all week! They keep in the fridge for about 5 days.

I make a dozen, mix about 10 eggs, and a cup of heavy cream together, along with any omelette fixins you like. I use cheese and bacon bits (bacon bits bc of the convenience). Bake them at 350 until just a bit brown on top (or do the knife test.) You dont want to overcook these! Tada! Thats it! Bag 'em and save em if you'd like!




Cracker Pizza


I LOVE pizza, and because I don't eat it on LC, I frequently come up with alternatives to the taste. For a quick super simple snack with that pizza taste I so crave, I took a WASA cracker (which has 6-8 carbs depending on which kind you get..the more fiber the better!) and some mozzarella ( I actually used a mozzarella cheese stick!) and some pepperoni slices, put it together and baked it until the cheese was melted. You can do this in the mircowave but the cracker wont stay as crispy. TASTES YUUUMMMY!




MORE RECENT FAVES



Fiber One Yogurt
Each contains 8 net carbs and 4 sugar. I don't eat one everyday, but they are great as a treat! Plus, when you are doing low carb you really need those good sources of fiber. Its very important. So this is perfect for that and feels like your cheating!
PS-The key lime pie flavor is amazing! Seriously tastes like your eating KLP!



Edy's Fruit Bars
Each contains 5 net carbs and 1 sugar. I love these! They don't taste as sugar free as some of the other brands i've tried. I'll admit that I usually do one of these a day. Its a low carb treat at the end of my day :) Raspberry is my fave :)


Shaw's Crab Cakes
Ive already eaten these and so I don't have the box, and I can't find the nutritional info on the internet for some reason, but I do know they have 9 carbs. Only 4 come in a box, so I spaced them out during the week. I'd have one for lunch one day, with a side of veggies, and do the same thing on a different day, but for dinner. They are really really good! I'm sure I can make these myself, using LC bread, but I just haven't gotten around to trying. Until then, Shaw's it is!

Thanks for visiting, I love hearing from you, however it still always surprises me how many mean and rotten comments I receive, so please remember that I post what I eat merely as a suggestion of ideas for others. Low carbing is not cut and dry. What works for me may or may not work for you. Also, I live exclusively low carb, but I don't live my life counting them so I don't often include the net carb counts on recipes. Happy low carbing ya'll! :)
