That is what I always use. It is called broccoli slaw. I also add a bag of shirataki noodles (drained, rinsed, boiled) to bulk it up.

My husband and I planned to spend the day at some rapids this weekend. I've never made a road trip low cab lunch before. This is what I came up with:



Lettuce rolls, hard boiled eggs, Babybels, cucumbers, celery stuffed with dill cream cheese and aged cheddar portions.

The rolls are lettuce, ham and turkey slices, swiss and a bit of mustard. I rolled them tightly in plastic wrap and the next day when I unwrapped them they held their shape. They tasted great too

We really enjoyed the celery mmmm. The hard boiled eggs weren't even touched since we had so much food and they were pretty eggy smelling haha. They came home to be used as egg salad the next day.

Looks great! But what is in the upper right corner next to your lettuce wraps? Looks like something thin and brown? Do tell!

Thanks for posting all these wonderful ideas, pictures and recipes. You all are wonderful!

Have you all had the White Castle pie? I love that. I will usually put in on a bed of leftover veggies or on top of a salad. I also love Kent's (Bowulf on Youtube) recipe for Thousand Island dressing. It's really good.

I need to find a good homemade low carb bbq sauce.

I searched for years for a good BBQ sauce only to find out that the ones based on low sugar ketchup was what I was looking for all that time.

Spaghetti and meatballs!

Shirataki spaghetti noodles, tomato meat sauce and meatballs.

Meatballs:
lean ground beef
lean ground pork (half the amount of the beef)
golden flax meal
1 egg
squirt of mayo
squirt of mustard
paprika
sea salt flakes (I have a wild mushroom flavour that I love)
nutritional yeast
dried parsley
fresh grated parmesan
baked at 350 until done
(as you can see, I'm not much for measuring, haha. I just throw stuff in the bowl and mix )

As for the tofu shirataki noodles, I rinsed them well in a colander, shook as much water out as I could, and then pan-fried them in small batches in a hot, dry, non-stick frying pan. This got rid of all the water, as it evaporates. Then I added a lot of yummy butter and tossed them to coat.

This was a very satisfying and delicious meal. Low carbers and non low carbers enjoyed it equally.

Tomato sauce is a little carby, but I used a very small amount and of course the shirataki tofu noodles are very low in carbs.

I made a ton of meatballs, so now I have lots to use throughout the rest of the week for snacks and meals.

I ended up freezing most of the tomato meat sauce since I made a large batch and don't want to eat *too* much of it at once!

Once again, I have to proclaim my looooove for the tofu skirataki noodles!

If anyone is wondering about the nutritional yeast, it it a flaky/powdery yellow product that has a nice nutty, cheesy type flavour. I get mine from Bulk Barn. It's really good for you and I really like the taste. Here's a small bit from Wiki: "On average, 2 tablespoons provides 60 calories with 5 g of carbohydrates (of which 4 g is fiber). A serving also provides 9 g of protein and is a complete protein, providing all nine amino acids the human body cannot produce. It is also a source of selenium and potassium."

I think it was just a sirloin roast. I studded it with garlic cloves, rubbed it down with olive oil, rosemary and thyme. I browned all sides in a heavy bottom pan on the stove and finished it in the oven. I cooked it about 30-40 minutes at 400 and then let it rest for 20 minutes under foil. My husband likes his meat rare and I'm more of a medium person...so this turned out perfect!

Before starting Atkins I ate veggie pasta like every day. For me, this really satisfies the cravings for those flavors: chop up 1/2 tomato and season it really well (garlic or basil-infused olive oil, salt, pepper and oregano). Put in a bowl and cover with 2 oz of your favorite melty cheese, 10 roughly chopped black olives and a generous Tbsp of parmesan. Then zap for 2 minutes. It is soooo good.

It's incredibly easy to take to work for lunch. Other things that would be great to add: chopped onions, mushrooms, peppers, pepperoni or Italian sausage. But sometimes simple is best!
