The Blogs I Read

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. Yard work has kept me very busy this month. It’s time I introduced you to the other low carb blogs I read regularly. Many of my  new recipes that are “keepers” come from these marvelous bloggers. I currently read these low carb food blogs:

Splendid Low Carbing with Jennifer Eloff  has a marvelous recipe for a low carb gluten free bake mix.  With this bake mix you can eat pancake, crepes, biscuits and muffins. I prefer the lower carb version of all of these now. When I eat normal baked goods, I am put off by the sweetness. Jennifer has also published a cook book, Low Carbing Among Friends, which I use regularly.

Buttoni’s Low Carb Recipes has a lot of induction friendly recipes, which I really appreciate, given that we can’t go much above induction at this point. We have especially enjoyed her Fluffy Cheddar Biscuits, Chicken Shawarma Lettuce Wraps, and Shallot Boursin and Bacon Scrambled Eggs.

24-7 Low Carb Diner, by Lisa Motyok has recipes that can be doubled and frozen or that use one ingredient in multiple recipes. A real time saver. As much as I enjoy cooking, some days I just can’t believe that my family wants to eat three  times a day. Lisa’s blog introduced me to real New Mexico green chile powder, which is really, really good. I also discovered from Lisa’s blog that I could whip coconut milk. Delicious!

Maria’s Nutritious and Delicious Journal gives the nutritional information for packaged foods (frequently scary) and then Maria provides an alternate recipe. She also explains the effects and consequences of eating certain foods in an easy to understand way. We really like her Shamrock Shake recipe, which you can make with coconut extract if you don’t have mint and if you’re out of protein powder it still turns out. Her Mexican Chicken Casserole is in the Low Carbing Among Friends cookbook and it is so good that I make a double batch and freeze one when I make it.

All Day I Dream About Food has some marvelous baked goods. This morning I made Raspberry Amaretto Clafoutis (minus the amaretto, almond extract works well) which my husband immediately declared a keeper. And this weekend I made Walnut Blondies with Dark Chocolate Chunks to fortify us on our hike. We ate them all in 24 hours.

I have highlighted just a few of my favorite recipes on these blogs. There are many more. Check them out.

  1. Thank you so much for the shout-out! I truly appreciate it. And I have to make those walnut blondies again, those really were good.

  2. I wish walnut oil wasn’t so spendy. I used half butter and half walnut oil. I love the new look of your blog.
