Post Low carb ideas
If you like Cauliflower it can make a nice substitute for mashed potato.

I have made sugar free jelly with a bit of cream to thicken it let it set and add some chopped nuts on top. Makes a nice dessert.

You can make lasagna with large mushrooms or eggplant instead of normal lasagna sheets.

Make stir fry with extra veg instead or rice or noodles. Make your own marinade instead of shop pre made stuff, Like add your own garlic and ginger etc. I am a Banana has made wonderful Low carb stir fries.

Salad dressing typically has 3 - 10 grams of carbs per serving (2 tablespoons - no one uses JUST 2 tablespoons!) which sabotages the "I"ll just have a salad" diet so many people follow. Here's a GREAT way to add some protein, cut carbs and keep your salad from tasting like lawn clippings.

take 1 cup of cottage cheese, add two tablespoons of olive oil and whip vigorously for a few seconds with a fork.

Season with garlic salt, onion powder, paprika, basil and cayanne powder (this will have to be done to your specific taste. I usually use 2 - 3 pinches of each). Mix it all together and add a couple table spoons of bacon bits for flavor and texture.

Each serving (4 oz) should have roughly 85 calories, 3 grams of carbs and 14 grams of protien!!

Of course any seasonings could be used in place of those I listed.

Cauliflower can also be made into a bread substitute, you can make a pretty good low carb pizza that way if you think there are too many calories in a MEATZA.
