Default Fruits?

Early on in this thread - (which I have now read the entire thing!!!! whew!) I was seeing a lot of fruits - how much of those are okay? I thought fruits were pretty much a major no-no so I've stayed away from them....

Also - how bad are mushrooms? I love all kinds of them - are some worse than others? Portabellas are my favorites.....a couple of big slices of portabellas sauteed in butter - with a little bit of garlic salt.....nummy!

My grocery list is pretty similar to most I've seen here - though I haven't done a whole lot of the nuts either - again - thought those were pretty bad.....

Default oops

I mae the fried eggplant. Cut it then salted it then washed the salt off and fried it. Luckily while I was frying the second batch I tasted the first. I hadnt washed them enough and they were so salty I had tears in my eyes. Washed again what I had left, fried them and they wee ok. I didnt realise just how much oil they need though.
Definately something that needs refining.

Fionas pakoras are sort of vegetable pancakes using soya flour (if Im not too mistaken) I dont remember the exact recipe but I think its in her diary.

Default Your Low Carb Shopping Carts

Hi Everyone,
I am real new to this concept and page. I read your lists of foods but what I need is the name brand of packaged foods, staples.

I know about the basics, meat, cheese. I am looking for bottled sauces, base for soups, that type of thing....

Also, how many carbs a day are your guys eating? Do you think 30 is okay to start?

One last thing. at night I like a glass of wine. Any suggestions on type of wine? Also when I have a sweet tooth which is every evening after dinner.....any suggestions on what to eat. I have been chewing on a few raisins.

Thanks.

Gabrielle

I have always loved to cook and when we started this WOE I thought my fun and my reputation would suffer; I could not have been more wrong. For example, I have discovered that there are many alternatives to the usual boring potatoes, rice, and noodles. Where is it written that hash browns have to contain potatoes; I make them with small white turnips or with daikon and a little onion and they are delicious. And we all know how useful cauliflower is!

In my refrigeratorefrigerator you will always find:

Heavy cream
Light cream (for coffee)
butter, butter, butter (due to a great sale, there are 20 pounds of the stuff in my freezer : )
Lots of cheese: cheddar, havarti, parmesan, double and triple cream brie, feta
Cream cheese
Ricotta
sour cream
Sugar free peanut butter
At least three dozen eggs (I buy them at a local farm)
Cauliflower
Cabbage
Brocolli
Turnips
Eggplant for baba ghanouj or to use instead of lasagna
Bacon
Frozen raspberries and blueberries
Frozen spinach - lots
Celery
Lettuce
Fresh fish
Homemade faux maple syrup

In the pantry or on the countertop:

Canned pumpkin for un-pie
Onions
Grape tomatoes (terrific with cream cheese)
Coconut milk
Splenda
Pure sucralose (my new favorite sweetener)
Unsweetened baking chocolate
Unsweetened cocoa
Unsweetened coconut
Davinci sugar free syrups - at least half a dozen flavors
Gallons of seltzer for Italian sodas
Diet soda, but just one or two kinds because we like the Italian sodas better
Pork rinds
Nuts (well, most of them are in the freezer)
Tuna
Two thickeners called not/Starch and not/Sugar which have no carbs are work really well

In the freezer:
Almond flour and Oat flour, neither of which I had ever bought before this WOL
Beef
Pork
Chicken
La Tortilla low-carb tortillas
Kielbasa
Sausage - my butcher makes his with no sugar or additives

Well, there's probably more, but it's 90 degrees in the shade today and I can't think of anything else.

Hi Wanda: plantains are LOADED with carbs - they may not be sweet and ripe, but the starchiness is all carb, like potatoes. Not a good thing for a low carb diet.

Anyway, my refrigerator staples:

- eggs
- CHEESE! Right now, I've got: cheddar, swiss, processed slices, cottage cheese, cream cheese and parmesan.
- one or two Yves or SmartMenu soy products; or tofu
- cream
- lettuce or mixed salad greens
- tomatoes
- coffee
- diet pop
- beer I'm low carb, not NO carb!

Freezer staples:
- frozen veggies like broccoli or cauliflower
- chopped frozen green peppers and onions for cooking
- ready-to-bake fish

Cupboard staples:
- canned tuna
- spices
- So Soya (meat substitute; dry)
- sugar free jello

I CAN HELP YOU A LITTLE...IF YOU LIKE WINE...DRINK PREFERABLY DRY, VERY DRY RED WINE (FIRST CHOICE), WHITE WINE(VERY DRY) INCLUDING CHAMPAGNE...

ABOUT THE RAISINS....THEY HAVE A HIGH INSULIN-STIMULATING EFFECT SO THEY ARE KIND OF....UNNACEPTABLE!!!......INSTEAD, NUTS WITHOUT SUGAR AND PEANUTS(NOT HONEY ROASTED ) ARE BETTER FOR YOU...

Default favorite brands!

great idea for a post!
I have as probably many others have struggled with the no sugar or starch in the ingred. rule and it seems you just can't get away from it. it would be really cool if everyone could post their fav. brands of products they succesfully use maybe it would help newbies and shoot even give all of us some new things to try.
heres some things I have been using!

trader joes mayo (zero carb zero sugar in the ingred)
the only brand I found with no sugar

maries brand dressings (have only tried the blue cheese
(zero carbs per 2 tbsp and no sugar at all in the ingred.)

also annies naturals have dressings with no sugar (cesar dressing) 1 carb per 2 tbsp

carbolite ice cream
4 carbs per 1/2 cup and doesn't throw me out of keto

hansens diet soda...brand new
made with splenda and totally sodium free,
caffeine free, and yummy ( zero carb)

anyone successful still drinking diet pepsi...I miss it
also i have the best pimento's n cheese recipe without the fillers
I formed this into a ball and rolled in crushed walnuts for a party it was a hit!

1/2 lb shredded chedder
1 4oz jar pimentos drained
1/4 c pimento stuffed green olives minced
4 green onion minced
1tsp garlic pwder
1tsp paprika pwder
3oz cream cheese room temp
1/3 cup mayo

mix chedder pimentos olives grn onion garlic and paprika in bowl

mix mayo and cream cheese.
add to cheese mix, mix well
you can eat as is on sandwiches or meat but
i like it the cheese ball way
just let it sit in the fridge for a couple hors before forming into a ball! 20 carbs for the whole thing without the count of crushed walnuts for cheese ball...so about 1.1 grms per 2 tbsp
