I think most of us tend to eat more austerely than the pictures we share here. Most days I'm eating eggs and bacon, chili, things I enjoy that aren't photogenic. I can't eat a bunch of rich food, and I really only want to eat when hungry, so I'm not cooking that much most of the time.

I think what we see here is basically 7 people at any given time, each sharing a meal or two per week. Most nights I'm not eating anything amazingly fancy. The pictures are to disavow the common notion that Atkins is 100% meat and no vegetables, flavor or creativity. It's just a way to say, "See the variety you can enjoy on the most stringent phase of Atkins." I think we're fighting convention in showing the decadence.

Speaking to the fat issue, there are definitely low carbers who fare better on lower fat than higher fat. I need 65-80% fat or I feel lousy and stop losing, but I have a good friend who needs lower fat, and she feels wonderfully when she is following a low carb, lower fat plan.

Jerk shrimp over meatless crackslaw, with cucumber sections



Boneless buffalo wings (crusted in parmesan and flax) with snap peas

Jerk shrimp (the last of it, thank god), mushroom, spinach and cheese stuffed chicken breast with ginormous asparagus and the extra filling that spilled out when rolling.

cut the chicken breast in half, leaving it conected on the long side (open it like a book) sautee the filling, spread in on the chicken; roll it up and secure with toothpicks. bake until chicken is cooked then remove the toothpicks.

Cerise,

Can you tell me what you are cooking your pattys on to get those amazing grill marks? I have tried my bbq and it just burns the whole lot. I personally like a little crunch on my pattys and steaks but have not mastered this technique at all. Any help would be so appreciated!! Your dishes make me want to create and explore new dishes. I LOVE YOUR BLOG TOO!!
Thank you for all your posts.

Thank you!

I just used a griddle pan I picked up from Kmart for $25, I use it for all my meat to get those lovely marks.

Awlass - I don't know about the chocolate eggplant, although I am willing to try anything once. LOL. The eggplant mushroom avocado melt I would totally dig into without question.

Eggs benedict with my lazy hollandaise sauce.

Tip: rather than an egg ring, if you cook eggs into a solid mass and use a cookie cutter or a glass, you get a perfect circle of egg.

It's so easy! I am not feeling well and I REALLY wanted hollandaise. I just took 1/4 cup mayonnaise, added a pinch of salt and a dash of lemon juice, nuked it and voila!

ROFL. That is too funny. It was an insane concoction, that's for sure. I could only eat 1/2 of it (I ate the flatter-chicken part), and I let Hubby have the other half, with the big chunk of chicken, and he couldn't even finish it! He had a Man V. Food moment and Food won.

That reminds me of that Carl's Jr. breakfast burger except without the hash brown nuggets. Man those babies are good.

Yours looks even tastier though. Mouth is salivating.
I saw an episode of DDD where they added egg and layered the meat! It was a monster burger but looked mouth watering. Yours is right up that alley.


ETA: I just realized that what I thought was an egg under the cheese might just be more cheese. LOL. Either way your burger looks delish! Cheesy meaty goodness. Yum yum
