Low carb recipe sharing?

Hubby and I are cutting our carbs and rather than sift through the countless sites with countless recipes, I’d like to ask for your favorite recipes here.
Who has a favorite, tried-and-true low carb recipe to share? Extra points if it’s easy, inexpensive, and serves 10-12!
Post away and leave a link. We may as well put Mr. Linky to work, right?
Who’s sharing? Link up, with my thanks and hubby’s gratitude.
Bon appetite!

  2. Thanks everyone, for the tips, recipes and other links. Keep ‘em coming!

    Karen,
    I sure wasn’t complaining – thanks for the fajita idea! I love Mexican food, and we eat fajitas all the time so the variation will be nice.
    Ditto for taco salad: I could eat it every day!

    Jendeis,
    I’ve never consistently eaten low-carb for long periods, but I do find that my erratic blood sugar is far more stable when I eat low carb, so will probably do it during pregnancies from now on. I just don’t do super-low carb. I drink milk and eat fruit & veggies, but avoid most other carbs. I feel like it’s a healthy balance for my needs.

    MamaArcher,
    The Lindt Excellence 85% Extra Dark Chocolate bar that I posted about recently is very low carb. It’s also very *gone.*
    :)

  3. Whoops.

    Read the directions.

    I was supposed to post a recipe on MY blog, wasn’t I?

    Some of us just never grow up…

    for chocolate~~ there used to be a low carb dove dark chocolate bar! It was really good, I need to see if they still make them.

  5. Oh yeah. A recipe, but I will post more on my blog, too. I think, for my parents the key to their success was not cutting out flavor. We still enjoy some of the basics like Mexican food without the carbs, tortillas, chips etc. One tried and true favorite minus the carbs is as simple as tacos only in the form of taco salad. Prepare whatever meat to your liking, pile on top of lettuce and cover with favorite taco toppings, cheese, guacamole, sour cream, salsa. We also like to throw in a red bell pepper for added vegetables and flavor. And when the salsa and sour cream mix together it makes a wonderful dressing all its own. If my mom makes enchiladas she uses low-carb tortillas, too.

    They have cut sugar completely out of their diet, which may be unacceptable to chocaholics :) but to each their own on the low-carb diet and whatever fits their needs and family needs. Some may substitute wheat pastas, rice and breads for the white stuff, etc. But my mom does make these wonderful cappuccinos with sugar free torani syrup and decaf espresso beans, which is a very nice treat during cold winter months and a very nice treat when its iced in the summer months.

    And we enjoy plenty of fresh berries topped with whipped cream, too.

    Hi,

    Found your blog through Christine at Lily of the Valley in talking about homebirths.

    I posted two recipes, both very quick. To make the tuna recipe low-carb, I’d advise using whole wheat couscous.

    My DH does a low-carb diet and I try to do a modified version. You may want to look at Leanne Ely’s book Saving Dinner the Low-Carb Way or her website, Saving Dinner.

    Do you stay low-carb during your pregnancies? We are TTC and I want to make sure that I’m treating myself and the baby well.

    Thanks!

    Check out my blog at healingtruth.blogspot.com for a porkchop and strawberry recipe. It is yummy!

    I posted the unlikely Pasta Salad. But it’s Dream*field. Which is low carb pasta and it’s really delicious. This recipe makes a HUGE bowl, but for 10-12 it would probably have to be a side dish?

  9. and there’s Laura at http://orgjunkie.blogspot.com/index.html

    she has a new low carb menu plan for the week posted every monday, she shares her recipes in there too, though you might have to adjust the amounts…

  10. MamaArcher says:

    Great idea! I have been telling myself I need to get back on the low-carb wagon! I posted my favorite on My Blog, Tomato Delight.

  11. I don’t have a recipe, but I have a suggestion: e-mail the author of Rocks In My Dryer, she posted something on this subject a while back – i think – so she might be able to share some recipes with you…

  12. Semi-raw fajitas:

    1. Slice super-thin sweet peppers (we like red, yellow, and orange) and sweet onions. Sprinkle with salt and your favorite fajita seasoning. Set aside for 10 minutes after tossing so the flavors can meld.

    2. Add thinly sliced chicken or beef (cooked and seasoned).

    3. Toss the veggies again and then fold with the meat into low-carb tortillas of your choice (or just toss on a salad – YUM) and add salsa, a touch of sour cream, and guacamole.

    We don’t cook the veggies for our fajitas, and they’re SO yummy this way!

  13. Hi Kim,
    I’ve never introduced myself and you might as well call me a lurker, but saw this low carb recipe deal and thought I’d join in. My parents are on a low carb diet and have been pretty successful. P.S Loved the
    photo of you and your siblings.

Don't just think it: say it!
