8 eggs 1 cup mayonnaise ½ pound bacon 1 cup hot pepper cheese3 tablespoons chives – 4 thin radishes – sliced thin 1 head lettuce – torn fine for salad 1 avocado – cubed
How to Prepare:
Boil the eggs, until hard and dice them. Fry the bacon and crumble it. Mix all ingredients in a bowl. NOTES: Carbs for avocado based on 14.85 for 1 3/8 cup – adjust accordingly. Carbs for lettuce base on 2 for 1 cup – adjust accordingly Carbs for hot pepper cheese not included in above total – adjust accordingly
Bacon Cheeseburger Salad CarbsPerServing:7g total Effort:Easy
3 ounces lean ground beef crumbled,cooked and drained 4 slices bacon – cooked crisp,drained and crumbled 1 cup chopped lettuce 1/8 cup chopped onion1/2 medium tomato – chopped 1 tablespoon mayonnaise ¼ cup cheddar cheese – (or 1 once)
Stir mayo into lettuce,onion and tomato until evenly coated. Toss in beef,bacon and cheese. Basics: Meat, Egg or CarbsPerServing:7g total Effort:Easy
½ pound chicken, beef, or ham – cooked and cut according to preference OR 12 ounces tofu, firm drained very well OR 6 large eggs 2 tablespoons mayonnaise 1 tablespoon yellow mustard ¼ cup chopped onion ¼ cup chopped celery 2 tablespoons capers – drained 3 tablespoons dill pickle – chopped
Note: chop meats to desired chunkiness after cooking. Leftovers work great! In a large bowl, mix desired main ingredient with remaining ingredients.
Season to taste with salt and pepper. I like to add a little horseradish sauce to the ham or roast beef salad for some zip.
For egg salad: Mix everything but the eggs well. Chop eggs to desired
chunkiness and fold into mixed ingredients. Add a few drops of tabasco sauce
if desired. A squeeze of lemon also goes well.
For eggless salad: Mix everything but the tofu Squish tofu with your hands
or with a fork until it breaks apart. Fold in with remaining ingredients.
Eggless salad should sit for at least an hour, refrigerated, before serving.
Lemon or a few drops soy sauce work great in tofu based salads.
**personal note*** Process meats find in a food processor for more of a ‘spread’ consistency. Don’t process with the remaining ingredients until you get the meat broken down almost to the size you want. The spreads work very well on lettuce leaves for roll-ups The chunky version works great over lettuce for a salad meal.

Fried Jicama Chips Serves:One CarbsPerServing:6 Prep Time:10 minutes or less Effort:Easy
1/2 of a medium Jicama Seasonings of choicePeanut Oil (or other oil suitable for high heat frying)
How to Prepare: Peel and rinse 1/2 of one globe of jicama. Slice paper thin, using one of those "as seen on TV" type vegetable slicers if you can. They give you the thinnest slices. Otherwise use a very sharp knife and slice carefully and thinly. Blot excess moisture from slices. Use enough oil to cover bottom of large skillet and to cover the slices, about 1/4" deep should do it. Heat oil, but do NOT OVERHEAT. Add jicama slices in a single layer. You won't get them all done in one batch. Fry each batch until you have browning around the edges, then remove to paper towels to drain while the next batch frys.
The chips shrink considerably. While still warm sprinkle them with pepper, salt, low carb seasonings, parmesan cheese, whatever you like, but lightly.
If you make the slices thin enough and fry carefully these chips come out so delicate and crunchy. Really too delicate for dipping unless you just use a thin Ranch dip or something.

6 ounces walnuts -- approx 1 3/4 cup, chopped 1 cup grated cheddar cheese 1/2 cup parmesan cheese2 eggs salt/pepper to taste
How to Prepare: Beat the eggs in a large mixing bowl. Add all other ingredients, stirring until well coated. Spread evenly on a baking stone or cookie pan. I spread mine thin, so they'll be more crisp like a cracker. But, you could spread it thicker if you wanted more of a bread type texture. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 375 until very bubbly. Let cool, then cut. Makes about 18 2X4 crackers, at 1.5 carbs each. Keep refrigerated. Pop one or two in the toaster oven to "crisp up", then enjoy with your favorite topping.
These "crackers" are very low carb and taste great with toppings like tuna or egg salad, or just by themselves! I eat them almost every day, and they really satisfy my cracker/bread cravings.

Prep Time:3 minutes
1/4 C Soy Flour
1 T Cocoa Powder
1/4 t Baking Powder
5 Packets Splenda
2 T Melted Butter
1 T Water
How to Prepare:
In 2-Cup Pyrex baking dish blend well left column (flour, cocoa, baking powder, splenda). Add water, melted butter and egg. Blend thoroughly with fork. Cover with plastic wrap (To vent, cut small slit in center of plastic wrap). Microwave on high 1 minute or until

Lemon Cream Pie Serves:4 CarbsPerServing:about 7 Prep Time:30 mins to make, 3 hours chill Effort:Average
1/2 C ground nuts (macadamias or walnuts) 2 packets Splenda 1/4 C bake mix 3 T melted butter Filling:
1/2 Pint (8 fl oz) heavy cream 1 package sugar-free Lemon Jell-o 3/4 C water 1 packet Splenda
How to Prepare: Crust: Chop nuts in a food processor, or by hand. Try to get as fine a grind as possible without turning them to butter. Combine nuts, bake mix, and Splenda in a bowl. Add in melted butter and blend until you have a crumbly mixture that will hold its shape if pressed together (you may not need the entire 3 T of butter).
Grease a pie dish (7-8" works best), and pour in crust mixture. Press firmly into the bottom and sides of the pan, coming up the side about 2". Bake this in a 300 F Degree preheated oven for about 10-14 minutes, until it just barely begins to darken (careful - don't overbake). Remove from oven and cool.
Heat 3/4 C water in a small saucepan. When boiling, add the package of Jell-o. Stir to dissolve completely, then take off heat. Chill until the Jell-o liquid is cold, but not starting to set (about 20 mins in the refrigerator).
Pour 3/4 C of heavy cream into a chilled bowl (the other 1/4 C will be whipped for a topping, but this is to be done just before serving). Beat until very stiff peaks form. Add the chilled Jell-o liquid to the whipped cream. Beat for a few seconds, just enough to fully mix. Pour the filling into the cooled pie crust and spread to form an even top. Place in the refrigerator and chill for at least 3 hours.
Just before serving, beat the remaining 1/4 C of heavy cream, adding Splenda to taste. Cut the pie into pieces and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

POUND CAKE CarbsPerServing:44g carbs total Effort:Easy
1/3 cup oat flour 1/2 cup atkins bake mix 1/2 cup macadamia meal -- or 1/4 cup ground fine (about 1.5oz) - 7g
3 eggs -- jumbo *see Note - 3g
1/4 cup heavy cream 2 tablespoons vanilla extract10 splenda tablets -- tablets .5g *see note 1/2 teaspoon stevia -- 0g - *see note 1/2 teaspoon saccharin -- liquid *see Note 1 stick butter -- melted 1/2 cup sour cream 1 tablespoon baking powder
How to Prepare:
1. Melt butter and beat in eggs, cream, vanilla and sweeteners. (***I'm guessing this totals about 1 cup sugar equivelant if you use another sweetener other than the splenda, stevia, saccharin combo - add the carbs to the totals, please Beat in sour cream and mix until smooth, then add dry ingredients and beat for 2 minutes Pour into a greased large loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour(very dense - give it time to cook even if the top gets really brown).Let cool before inverting on a plate. This is a very moist,cake like finished product.
2. **Notes: I would try this and beat the egg whites separately with 1/4 tsp cream of tartar, then fold them into the batter once it's time to pour into the pan. It rose quite a bit, but fell in the center and the beaten whites may help lighten it up.
3. Glaze if desired: Mix 2T softened cream cheese, 2T cream and 2T sour cream with 2pkt sweetener and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract until smooth. Drizzle over cooled cake NOTES : Counts for stevia, splenda tablets and macadamia meal not included in totals

In a skillet, melt butter and saute onions & garlic until soft. Add shrimp and crab meat and heat through. Add black pepper to taste. While that is heating, drain any liquid off the fish fillets.
Add parmesan cheese to the shrimp/crab mixture and stir until melted. Then drop tablespoon-size portions of the shrimp mixture onto the fish fillets and roll up (you can secure with a toothpick, but I just arrange it so that the "seam" is at the bottom.)
Arrange the fillets in the baking dish as far apart from one another as possible. If there is any shrimp mixture left after filling all the fillets, spread it over the top of the fish rolls. Then, if you wish, sprinkle a little more parmesan over the top. (I also added a little paprika for color.)

Slow Cooker Country Spare Ribs Serves:4 CarbsPerServing:10g per serving (2 ribs) Prep Time:15-20 min Effort:Easy
4 lbs Country Style Spare Ribs 2 Tbs Butter 1 Can Diet Coke or Diet Rite Lots of Lauwry's Seasoned Salt
1 Can Diced Tomatoes(undrained) 1 Tbsp Molasses 1 Tbsp Minced Garlic 1 Tbsp Dried Minced Onion (or fresh onion - about 1/3 chopped) 1 Tbsp Hot Hungarian Paprika (if desired)
How to Prepare: Mix all ingredients from second column in your crock pot. Next, heat up the butter in large skillet until very hot but not so the butter burns. Sear each piece of ribs (I do 4 at a time) on each side. I like to sear, but it is not necessary. Sprinkle Lawry's salt generously on both sides of each rib. Layer ribs in slow cooker and pour diet coke over the top. Turn cooker on low (1 or 2) and cook all day (about 7 hours). 1/2 hour before serving, season again if necessary and turn to high so liquid boils. Serve and enjoy!! Tip - if you cook these even longer and/or on higher heat remove the bones and you'll have a wonderful stew (add a bit of sour cream to the broth).

LAMB WRAPPED IN GRAPE LEAVES Serves:15+ CarbsPerServing:3 - 5 (1 carb per wrapped leaf) Prep Time:1 1/2 - 2 hours Effort:Average
1 whole leg of ground lamb *or extremely lean red meat* 1/2 cup of pine nuts Amt of all spice (whole) to liking (minimal amt) *you can choose to alter what you put in your lamb filler* Water lemon juice tiny can of tomato sause.
How to Prepare: You have to estimate the amt of filling for the leaves because of the varying sizes. DO NOT overstuff the leaves.
Layer and tightly lay the wrapped grape leaves in your pot. Lemon juice and tomato in pot and THEN add just enough water to cover the grape leaves. You want then to make sure that you have a plate or something heavy to keep the grape leaves from floating around. If they float at all then they will unwrap and you wont have Lamb in Grape Leaves. SIMMER ! NOT BOIL
Takes about 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Just test for the leaves to be cooked. Carb count per leave minus the dietary fiber is .6 carbs. Pine nuts are only 4 carbs per 1/2 cup. So they are not even measureable unless you eat the whole pot LOL.

Meatloaf Serves:4 CarbsPerServing:7 Prep Time:30-min Effort:Average
1-loaf pan 1-lb ground beef (or turkey or chicken) 1-med onion (chopped finely) 12-mushrooms (or around that; chopped finely, like onion/NOT sliced)) 3-5 cloves of garlic (or less, if you're a wimp! crushed/chopped finely ) 2-3 TBS chopped parlsey1-egg 1/2 cup chicken broth (or water) 1-cup bread crumbs (or substitute; I use Keto Crumbs but you could
also just use less broth and more mushrooms/onion) 1/2-cup olive oil (you can use more if you'd like) 1-tsp salt (or 1-TBS soy sauce) 1/2-tsp black pepper
How to Prepare: I make a wonderful meatloaf that can pass for a meatball-flavored meal. You can slice it up and serve it with brown gravy and vegetables or top with melted mozzarella and marinara sauce or break it up into pieces and make into a beef stroganoff or however else you feel like being creative...It's a great thing to have around for lunches or dinners. You can even freeze slices and have whenever you feel like it. BTW-I think this is the best meatloaf I've ever had, not like the traditional at all.
First, pre-heat oven for 375-degrees. Next, saute all the mushrooms, onion, garlic, and parsley in a pan with the olive oil. Don't let it burn (garlic tastes yucky when burnt). When the onions are soft, remove from heat to let cool down. In a large bowl, add meat, egg, bread crumbs (or substitute), chicken broth (or water), salt (or soy sauce), and pepper. When the sauteed mixture has cooled enough, add it to the bowl and mix all ingredients (with very clean hands or proper mixer) until everything is well-combined. Now, put mixture into loaf pan (NO need to oil/grease pan as there is plenty of fat already in the mixture from the olive oil). Put into the oven and bake for 45-minutes. Voila! Now, you have a delicious, low-carb meatloaf (that tastes sort of like a meatball) that you can serve up all sorts of ways. Slice loaf into ten slices. There are about 3-gm of carbs per each slice (or 30-gm carbs/loaf). Enjoy!

1 teaspoon whole black peppercorn 1 teaspoon whole white peppercorns *tsp whole corriander seeds *tsp whole allspice 4 beef tenderloin steaks -- top loin or sirloin - 1" thickkosher salt -- to taste 2 tablespoons butter *cup brandy
1 *cup beef stock
How to Prepare:

pepper mixture into both sides of the steaks and then sprinkle them with the salt.
Heat a large, heavy-based skillet (preferably cast iron) over medium-high heat for a few minutes. Add the butter, and before it turns brown, add the steaks, making sure not to crowd the pan. Cook them, turning often, for 6 to 8 minutes or until they are brown. Set a steak on each of four dinner plates and keep them in a warm oven.
Pour the brandy into the pan and bring it to a boil. Scrape the bottom of the pan to remove the brown bits that cling to it. Pour in the stock and bring to a boil. Let the mixture bubble steadily until it reduces to
* cup. Spoon the sauce over the steaks and serve at once. I have also, on occasion, put a pat of butter on top once the sauce has been put on.

2 Chicken breasts (or the number needed to serve number of ppl you have) 1/2 c grated parmesan 1 egg, beaten 4 oz mozarella, shredded 1 tsp Italian seasoning Bacon
How to Prepare: Mix the parmesan with the Italian seasoning. Coat the chicken breasts with egg and dredge in the parmesan. Saute in a little olive oil until browned. Remove from skillet. Place onto a cookie cooling rack which has been placed on a LINED cookie sheet. Put a slice of bacon on each piece (or two-whatever it takes to cover surface of chicken)...on top of that, the mozarella. Bake until the chicken is done through. Enjoy!
The way to test for doneness: press with a fork, the thickest part of the breast...it should press just slightly and bounce back up. The amount it should press is to be compared to the amount the end of your nose presses when pressed gently with your finger.
STEAK/HAMBURGER DONENESS: GENTLY....
1. Press the space between your upper lip and nose(relaxed-don't tense it). This is RARE.
2. Press the side of your nostril. This is MED RARE.
3. Press the end of your nose. This is MEDIUM (also perfect for chicken breasts---no dry, cardboard chicken this way!)
4. Press the bridge of your nose (where the cartilage meets the bone). This is WELL DONE.
Transfer the idea of how much these areas press down to your meat and it will be exactly as you want it. Itallian Garlic Chicken Legs Serves:3 CarbsPerServing:5-6 Prep Time:10 minutes Effort:Easy
