Lower Carb Thanksgiving

I’d like to say we enjoyed a low-carb Thanksgiving, but I’d be telling a halftruth. Actually, we enjoyed a lower carb Thanksgiving. I modified the ingredients on some foods and didn’t cook others to reduce the carb load. However, not everyone at my Thanksgiving table is on a low-carb eating plan so I made a […]

I Love Jicama

Jicama (pronounced Hik-A-Ma) looks like something you move out of the way of the lawn mower. The one I purchased looked like a huge light-colored rock. It was just as heavy as a huge rock. Cooked vs. Raw I’m sure cooked jicama works just fine for some dishes. My initial venture into jicama land was […]

The other day we stopped at the diner for breakfast. Hurricane Sandy had knocked our power out so the diner was a quick and easy solution to the breakfast challenge. Being a low carb foodie, I ordered the smoked salmon and cream cheese on a bagel, but told them to hold the bagel. The meal […]

In my last post I mentioned my transformation to a low carb way of eating. In essence, I eat whole, non-processed foods (except for cheese). During the last 30 days I’ve eliminated all wheat products and most grains. I cooked my meals from scratch and monitored the ingredients I used. What I’ve Discovered Over this […]

It’s funny how things change. Not too long ago I was attempting to transition to a raw food diet. While I still see some merits to eating raw, I realize 100% raw is not for me. I think I captured my true mindset in my vegetarian, vegan or whole food post. As I was roaming […]
