13 lbs Down and My Latest Low Carb Loves

I lost 13 lbs last month by living sugar free/low carb!




Latest Low Carb Loves

Products

Diet Cherry Coke



Cocoa Covered Almonds



EAS AdvantEDGE Carb Control:
I drink 1-2 a day to curb cravings. They have to be refrigerated but even better when stuck in the freezer for 10 minutes or so so they are ice cold!



FiberOne Yogurt: Key Lime Pie is AMAZING



Original FiberOne Cereal: Serving Size + 1 packet of Splenda

Big romain lettuce leaves
You can make all kinds of wraps with big romain lettuce leaves. I use them instead of LC tortillas most of the time. My favorites have been tuna wraps and BLT wraps. For the BLT wraps, you can make your own sugar free miracle whip by just using regular mayo (a big glob) + 1 packet of splenda (or a bit less depending on how sweet you like it). Spread your miracle whip on the romain leaf, add your bacon, some tomato, wrap up, and done. SOOOO good!


Sweet Spiced Beef and Almond Peppers
I wanted to break out of my LC dinner shell and make someone really different for a change. I found this easy recipe and MAN it was good. I was nervous to serve it up for my husband but he LOOOOOVVVED it! Totally a winner!

Buckeyes
This LC treat is easy to make, requires no baking,
and tastes very similar to a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup!

Tips:
1. Smash and mix the peanut butter and butter together first and then add it to the Splenda.

2. Use 3-4 squares of Baker's Chocolate and add 8-10 semi sweet chocolate chips. Your barely increasing the carb count for each buckeye and it tastes soooo much better!

chilled and ready to eat!

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! :)
