I often post my food pictures on the Lo-Carb Fat Camp Group Page, but realized that this might be a good place to put the pictures together. These pictures don't have recipes attached, but I will give general directions (most of them are the result of lo-carbing my own recipes).
Use small Oopsies for the slider buns; make your regular recipe for pasta salad, but sub broccoli/cauliflower mix for the pasta.
Chuy's Panchos (12/31/11)
Order the Panchos from the menu, no chips & no beans. I went over the ingredients/amounts with the manager. This entire plate is 7.2 net carbs.
Applebees's Steak with Double Broccoli (01/21/12)
I usually go to Applebees when I am going out with someone--my son, my daughter, or a friend. We order the 2 for $20 and I order the steak. I ask them to sub broccoli for the potatoes. It's never been a problem for them to make the substitution. I will admit, that when I go with my daughter, we sometimes order one steak with baked potato and one with double broccoli. We split the baked potato and the broccoli, Neither one of us wants a whole potato in one sitting. Of course, this is when I'm on Maintenance--not on Induction or OWL.
BLT Wrap (11/24/2011)
Make your BLT; but, use lettuce instead of bread. This was very good. I've made it many times since. You can use Romaine lettuce or Boston lettuce. This was Romaine, but I use Boston whenever possible.
Macaroni & Cheese (03/02/2012)
This is a family favorite. The only thing I had to do to low-carb it was omit the flour (used to thicken the sauce). I use guar gum or xantham gum now. It tastes the same. I like to add a little finely chopped onion to the butter before I add the cream. The onion reminds me of my mom's home-made macaroni & cheese. In our house, no holiday dinner is complete without a HUGE pan of cauliflower and cheese.
Chile con Queso & Guacamole (04/27/2011)
At any Mexican food restaurant, you can order low-carb. I eat the appetizer with my family, but I substitute lettuce for the chips. Sometimes, this is enough to satisfy my hunger. If it's not, I order nachos (no beans or chips), taco salad (no shell), or fajitas (no tortillas).
I'll post more later. Until then...Happy Eating!
