Facebook Twitter

Tired of "diabetes" cookbooks loaded with recipes for dishes you can't eat?

Here's an ever-growing roundup of REAL diabetic-friendly recipe sites (many recipes are gluten-free, too).

Enjoy! Fettuccine | Up Late Anyway. So I’m almost a little afraid to post this because it’s just so crazy. This is probably the easiest recipe on the face of the earth. It’s just two ingredients much like regular pasta except we aren’t going to be using flour. We’re using cheese. I know. One cup of cheese (112 grams) per one egg yolk. The magic is in the yolk. First we need to let the pasta dry. Once it’s dry you can put it in a ziploc bag and store it in the fridge. You will be able to tell that it’s done drying when it’s not as shiny. Isn’t this amazing? Does it taste like cheese? Low Carb Fettuccine 1 cup 2% Milk Shredded Mozzarella (pre shredded cheese in the bag by Kraft works best.

Melt cheese in the microwave at 30% power for 1 1/2 mins in a 1200 watt microwave (if your watts are lower increase the power or increase the time.) 339 Calories; 23g Fat; 31g Protein; 2g Carbohydrate; 0g Dietary Fiber; By Elizabeth Nimphius Up Late Anyway Related.

Home · Low Carb Zen. Low Carb Southern Fish Fry - screwed on straight. As I’ve said many times before, down here in the south food is tied inextricably to social affairs. Your family gets together for Sunday dinner. Birthdays turn into buffets with extended family and friends. Church events are often potlucks. You go out for tacos and margaritas with your coworkers after finishing a tough project. My great aunt and uncle are heavily involved in the local Kiwanis and Jaycees, and every year, like clockwork, we’d get tickets to go to the annual fish fry.

So I love me a good fish fry. Just look at that. Now, the kind of fish you use is up to you. Around here, a pound of catfish costs about $4.99, and a pound of tilapia is about $5.99. Generally I settle on tilapia for both myself and CB, because it has a mild flavor, is low in mercury, and is high in protein and potassium, an electrolyte that is usually necessary to supplement on a keto diet. You can fry a whole filet at a time, or you can cut the fish into bite-sized nuggets, which is what I do. Low Carb Recipes | Low Carb Central's low carb recipe database! Ket-Oreos!

The Perfect ketogenic wrap! I’ve been on a quest to find the best gluten-free low carb tortilla and wrap recipes.

Each year one of my favorite bloggers, Rachel Dyer over at Movita Beaucoup, holds several awesome baking competitions. I’ve never entered before, but when she announced that the challenge for Bake My Cake 2013 was to bake a cake celebrating her graduation from baking school this summer, I knew I was going to enter, and that it had to be epic.

Ingredients For the Cake For the Ganache Frosting Instructions. Decadent Chocolate Cake - www.djfoodie.com. I personally lost about 150 lbs by following a low-carb diet. My initial losses came from a borderline vegan and raw diet, which did work, but ... it was frankly unsustainable. There was simply no way I could maintain that diet as a lifestyle. Needing to lose over 100 lbs., I needed something that would work, but also be enjoyable and sustainable for life. I looked and looked and read and read. It was finally an old yellowed copy of Atkins' New Diet Revolution that resonated and changed everything for me.

Reading that book, at a time I was open to the ideas, is easily one of the top turning points in my life. So, when they reached out to me to post a recipe of theirs on my site ... So ... without further adieu ... here's a lovely little flourless chocolate cake from the talented chefs over at Atkins! Thank you, Atkins! Chocolate cake — it's often looked at as the downfall of dieters everywhere, but it really doesn't need to be this way. Peggy’s Original Dumplings | Buttoni's Low Carb Recipes. For those who miss dumplings and noodles, here ya go!

Only took me 4 years to develop these! This one’s for you Dano! :) When you can’t have flour, it’s really really hard to make dumplings that will hold together during cooking. I’ve used almond flour, coconut flour, flax meal and a variety of alternate flours. You name it and I’ve probably tried that alternate flour to make a dumpling. Somewhere on the net a year or so ago, on some forum (probably Low Carb Friends, but not sure), someone mentioned they made dumplings with glucomannan powder.

If you’re not familiar with glucomannan powder, it comes from the Konjac tuber, and is used to make shirataki noodles seen in Asian menus. I’m getting more comfortable using this tricky ingredient and have finally come up with a “dumpling” that feels and almost tastes like my dumplings of old. These were the best low-carb chicken and dumplings I’ve had in 4 years! 3/4 tsp. baking powder 1½ T. glucomannan powder (Konjac powder) 1/8 tsp. salt.

Bacon-Cheese Bread I’ve been wanting to try out the Paleo Bread recipe on Elana’s Pantry blog and finally got around to it. But of course, I tweaked it up front, as I always do bread recipes, adding 3 flavor ingredients that turned it into a delightfully tasty breakfast! Hubby and I both liked this new morning treat. I did eliminate the honey in the original recipe, as I didn’t want any sweetness to the bread at all. I also increased the baking soda slightly and eliminated the salt, as cheese and bacon have enough in them I felt.

Otherwise, the basic batter was the same as her version. Adding the peppered bacon and cheese makes this so delicious.

You announce to your family. Then you serve to friends and you can’t help but say, that cheese – I made that. Now, I love cheese and have often wondering how to make it.

I’ve delved into home cheese making only a bit: feta, chevre from the raw goat’s milk we get each week, yogurt cheese which isn’t really much of a cheese at all. For a long time, I’ve been wondering how to make cream cheese. It couldn’t be much harder than a classic chevre, right?

Mum's Low Carb (Grain Free) Bread. As I’ve mentioned before, mum’s a low carber. She has to be very careful about her blood sugar levels. There was almost nothing she missed about the world of carbs and was happy to say goodbye to them for her health. But, as with everything, it’s the little things that matter most. She missed enjoying a slice of toast with her cup of tea in the morning.

So she set to and knocked up her very own low-carb alternative. It takes about 5mins to prep and 25mins to cook. If you’re a low carber who’s missing the simple pleasure of a beautifully buttered slice of bread, or just want to be able to pile it high with avocado for an easy lunch, you are going to love this! The texture is not exactly the same as bread, it’s a bit like a cross between brown bread and a moist cake.

The flavour is quite nutty and I now far prefer it to normal bread, especially as it leaves you feeling much lighter and without the “oooff” heavy feeling of wheat. To make one littleish loaf you’ll need: 4 eggs 1 cup of flax meal. Fettuccine | Up Late Anyway | Low Carb Recipes. Low-Carb Alternatives to Pasta. Low-Carb Macaroni and Cheese.
