Enjoying Food Without High Carbs

(These pages are still being fleshed out, so check back later for more info.)

In the low-carb food world, there is a lot of really bad-tasting stuff out there. I've tried a bunch of different things, so hopefully this experience can help you find some stuff that you'll like to eat.

Let me start off by saying that the vast majority of my eating involves whole foods such as meat, vegetables, cheese, and legumes combined into fun/easy meals. But anyone can find chicken, broccoli, green beans, etc., etc. without coming here, so let's get to some of the more interesting foods that you may not know about.

Good Things For Those Craving Carbs

  • Bread Don't let folks tell you that you can't eat bread on a low-carb diet. I prefer to avoid ones with soy flour in order to provide a better taste and texture.

  • Carbquik bake mix Unlike other soy-filled bake mixes, this one has real wheat flour, but somehow the fiber cooks like starch (or the starch digests like a fiber?). This means that it makes some really great-tasting baked goods.

  • Pasta Don't hurry past this one, even if you've had some really horrific low-carb pastas in the past. That's because this pasta is so good you can serve it to your high-carb friends without even needing to tell them that it's low in carbs.

  • Pasta sauce I've been reading pasta sauce labels lately, and I've found a few good ones with no more than 5 carbs per serving.

  • Progresso makes some low-carb soups that are pretty good. I like to tweak each one a little, such as adding more meat or veggies.

  • One quite good breakfast cereal I've tried is the Low-carb Special K. This is more of a "medium carb" food, but it's quite nice as a change from cooking eggs.
