Spices

Some of my favourite spices such as cinnamon and paprika are not on the induction food list, and I can't see them added on any of the ladder rungs.
Does that mean they are never to be eaten? Or if it is a try and see what happens thing, when would be the best time to add them?

You can use spices - just make sure they don't contain added sugar. On page 90 of the new book talks about using spices.

you can use them, and as with EVERYTHING else, you are expected to count the carbs. this isn't much if you grind the pepper grinder once over an egg, but if you use a fair bit of cinnamon or something, it adds up, so just look it up and log it like any other food.

personally, seasonings like that are one reason I can't stick to super low carb eating. I just have to have my spices and with them, a few eggs, some cheese, and something like cream, I am edging over 10 grams without even starting on vegetables. Oh well! They are worth it.

hmmmm have been searching and found that 1 teaspoon paprika has 2g carbs and 1 teaspoon cinnamon has 1g - guess that is why they are not on the list lol. Thanks for your replies though, I appreciate it.

Is that supposed to be net carb?

Here's a list of spices and their carb count from Linda Sue's site

This list shows Paprika at .5 carb per teaspoon
Linda's Low Carb Menus & Recipes - Spice Chart

I think also that Paprika would fall under Pepper as far as what is listed for Induction.
