There has been so much going on lately, I have been very neglectful of my blogging. Which is breaking the first rule of blogging.
I am getting a lot better at the whole carb free living. I have figured out several ways of cooking some of my favourites with a relatively low carb way of eating.
My family is happy eating cabbage instead of spaghetti. I know it sounds crazy. I tried it first on a whim. The grocery store in town had a ten things for ten dollars sale on. (I Love the 10 for 10!!)
One of the items was the pre-bagged coleslaw. So I bought a couple and for supper boiled two packages while I made meat sauce. My teenagers liked it. The four of us cleaned it up. It was great. We went from about 100 carbs worth of spaghetti to about 6 grams of carbs. Not to even mention the calories saved. I was so excited that everyone liked it. I went back to the 10 for 10 and stocked up and threw them in the freezer. Just as easy as spaghetti but lots better for you.
I also hosted a football party. The hardest of all parties for food temptation. So I decided to set my self up as well as possible. I made lots of pepperoni and ham chips. (3 min in the microwave. I have a chipster from epicure so the fat drips away but a plate works too.) I cut up veggies and made prosciutto, pickle and cream cheese rolls. I was going to have oysters as well but the teenagers admitted to eating them when I looked and couldn't find them. Even though I knew I had them. Oh well, next time.
Years ago I watched an episode of Oprah when they talked about going vegan and talked about "leaning into it". Obviously I am more of a meataterian than a vegan but the same principle exists. When I tried to cut all carbs in one day it was terrible but as I keep at it, I'm getting better.
I'll keep you posted.
Thanks for reading!
