Working Low-Carb into Your New Healthy Lifestye
Low-carb — it sounds dreadful because it conjures up visions of rice cakes and celery sticks. The reality is that low-carb does not have to be a bland form of punishment. It can be a rewarding and delicious experience. In this delightfully low-carb blog, we arm you with a few tools that help make healthy eating a looking-forward-to event.
Cauliflower — It's the new potato
One cup of raw, mashed cauliflower only has 5 grams of carbs. Amazing! What is more amazing is that cauliflower makes a perfect substitute for many high-carb foods. A good example of what we mean is the recipe for Cauliflower Chicken Alfredo. Who eats chicken Alfredo when trying to gain health and lose weight? You do. This recipe replaces the pasta with zucchini and much of the starch with cauliflower. Suddenly, chicken Alfredo is healthy and delicious. That is a little hint of what is to come. With a few tools, like zucchini noodles and flour substitutes, you drop the carbs, calories and keep the taste.
