After more than a year being sugar free/low carb, I have become quite creative in my recipe ideas and cooking strategies, however, without the internet i'd be completely lost when it comes to converting many of my old "sugar favorites" to SUGAR FREE FAVORITES! I also just like to keep things interesting and not stick to my ole faithful recipes all the time. You would not believe how many of your favorite meals can be converted to sugar free/low carb! You'd also be suprised at how many amazing and delicious meals you can cook for your family without them noticing or even CARING that you've created a healthy sugar free/low carb meal!
I'd like to share with you some of my favorite sites to look for great recipes, ideas, and sugar free/low carb products!
most of these sites are low carb help sites. This is because going sugar free is pretty straight forward and simple...JUST DONT EAT refined and processed SUGAR! However, its the low carb part that can get tricky and thats where you may need some extra help.
This site has TRULY low carb recipes and a convenient online store for many of the hard to find ingredients that some of their recipes call for!
This site was created by a woman named Sheila who went sugar free/low carb and lost 35 lbs in 5 mo. She went from a size 10/12 to a size 0! She has kept it off for 8 years now and offers lots of motivation, ideas, etc. to help you along the way! You can even call or text her for help (seriously i've done it!) She's an amazing person and her testimony will inspire you! I suggest ordering her self published cookbooks. I have 2 of them and they are a great help!
This is a cool site because you can view the lastest low carb news, get tips, view other's success stories, browse recipes, and theres also some nifty low carb diet tools like a "Hidden Carbs Inspector" and a handy Carb Counter.
A site I love because it has great recipes, a forum to interact with other low carbbers, and low carb help topics such as motivation, cheating, hidden carbs, health issues, etc.
This is a cool website run by a woman who is on a no flour/no sugar diet. She has some great recipes, articles, a forum, and a very handy search tool to look for sugar free/no flour recipes by type of ingredients or meal your after. NOTE* not all of these recipes are low carb even though they are sugar free! So check all of the ingredients first. For example: She has a recipe for a sugar free banana split BUT bananas themselves are VERY sugary fruits. So just look out out for that kind of thing when browsing recipes.
One of my most faaaavorite sites for low carb all around support! Read other low carb dieters stories, see before and after pics, lots of recipes, low carb product reviews, and even a chat room
An amazing GO-TO forum to converse with other low carbers. These people share their success stories and most awesomely, their recipes! Just people like me who get creative with their low carb diets and discover great ways to cook low carb...then they share that with everyone else! You'll find awesome support here!
THE BEST SITE to order your hard to find sugar free/ low carb ingredients! I absolutely love this site! You'll find tons of other goodies on this site too and will probably spend a good amount of time just browsing the neat health items they have!
