lovely Candice! I am trying your recipes slowly, one at a time! So far my fave is the peanut butter bars (p flour, p nut butter, splenda with choc on top). So yummy!

I so loved that cat

See, even kitties do well on low carb!
Hello everyone! This Thread is fantastic! Yall have some great looking food on here! What stopped me the most in my tracks is the cat!

Linnylamb I have a 10 year old Pom/Terrier dog. She stayed at around 8 to 9 pounds. In the past 3 years she has been gaining weight. I have changed her food 3 times to help her lose weight. For a couple months now I have been thinking she too needs to go on Atkins with me.

Can you please tell me what and how often you feed your cat? Cricket has been having trouble breathing when she is asleep. She does not go outside at all...Walking and jumping up in my chair is almost too much for here. She needs to lose at least 4 to 5 pounds. do you feed your cat cooked meat or raw meat?


I have not read this entire thread but what I have read and seen has made an impact on me. Yall have so many good foods in here.
I am on induction 68/72 Atkins. I started March 1, of this year and I have lost 50 pounds so far. I was on my own for the first 40. I found the Atkins web site and joined in. They all are going by the new book. They call NANY. I could not lose a pound on that way of eating. I have been on LCS for around 2 weeks now. Maybe a little longer. I started a thread titled Dr. Robert Atkins 72~~~

The few that are there came from Atkins. One was already here. She had went to Atkins to check it out and found me there. I am going to start reading every post to catch up to where yall are at now. Yall are cooking the best food I have ever seen. I wish my screen had smell~~

Thank you happylabs I have been giving a lot of thought about putting my doggie on Atkins!

Yall have so much great food here!!

Kallie was a kitten when I got her and my youngest son was just starting to sit up. She started sleeping beside him when I first got her. She took an extra liking to him. When my youngest son got married his wife was welcomed into the family by Kallie! When they gave me my second grand son {he too loved Kallie} he was messing with Kallie under the coffee table one day. Kallie was old by then. I told him he had better be careful. I warned him she was gona bite him! My grand son did not mind me, he loved playing with her. She got enough of his messing with her and he still to this day remembers Kallie biting the tip of his nose

We all loved my Kallie. I am so thankful we had 23 years together!

I never thought about that before but it might be a good idea to find some low carb food for two of my cats. They are both getting little round bellies.

I think you have to be careful they get the right nutrients, especially cats. I would check out a pet store for different food.

Wrote this about Troubleshooting Oopsies a while back, but it tends to get lost in the long threads, so I re-post it from time to time. It assumes you know nothing about how to make them:
Quote:
Let's go through a little checklist, to see if we can troubleshoot the problem:

- You need two bowls: A larger one for the egg whites, and a slightly smaller one for the yolk mixture.

- When separating the eggs, make sure you don't get any egg yolk mixed in with the whites, or else the whites won't whip up properly.

- Make sure your egg white bowl and beaters are scrupulously clean - any greasy/oily residue could prevent your egg whites from whipping up properly.


Start with the egg whites

- Make sure that you're not trying to whip the egg whites using beaters contaminated with yolk and cream cheese residue.

- Add the cream of tartar to the egg whites - it helps them whip up stiffer and maintain their volume better.

- Do not attempt to whip your egg whites using a blender, because they will not get stiff enough! An electric mixer works best, but you could also use a rotary egg beater or a whisk - they just take a lot longer.

- Whip the egg whites on high speed until they form very stiff peaks. This will take several minutes.

- Stop the mixer and lift your beaters out of the egg whites. There should be peaks that look like this: ||| not like this: ((( And certainly not like this: ~~~

- Additional test for stiff egg whites: Turn the entire bowl of beaten egg whites upside down. If they don't move at all, they're stiff enough. Do this only after first checking for stiff peaks, otherwise, you're likely to end up with your egg whites all over the floor!


Once the egg whites are stiff, you're ready to do the yolk/cream cheese mixture:

- Mix the egg yolks and cream cheese in a different bowl from the whites.

- You don't need to wash the beaters after whipping your egg whites, just scrape off most of the excess stiff egg whites into the egg white bowl.

- Don't soften the cream cheese. It will mix into the egg yolks just fine straight out of the fridge. (You can let it sit at room temperature while you do the egg whites if you want though)

- Just mix away until there's no obvious chunks of cream cheese left.

- The cream cheese does NOT need to be blended into the yolks perfectly smoothly. It's OK to still have some little bits of unmixed cream cheese in the yolk mixture.

Folding the yolk mixture into the stiff egg whites:

- NEVER use a mixer or blender of any kind to fold in the yolk mixture (Not even if it has a setting that says "fold" - that's still too fast, and will still break down the egg whites, giving you a pan full of "flopsies", instead of oopsies.)

- Don't try to fold in all the yolk mixture at once.

- Pour about half the yolk mixture over the egg whites.

- Fold the yolk mixture in by hand, using a long thin spatula/spoonula or a long thin teaspoon

- Cleo recommends folding the yolk mixture in by gently moving your long handled spoon back and forth across the bowl of egg whites in a sine wave (S pattern).

- Turn the bowl 90 degrees (1/4 turn) and make another sine wave (S pattern) back and forth across the bowl.

- Repeat this process with the 2nd half of the egg whites.

Problems with this step and what to do:

- If yolk mixture just drops to the bottom of the bowl without mixing in, I find that I can usually drag it back up to the top with my spatula, by scraping directly down the side and up in the middle of the bowl.

- Don't obsess with getting every bit of the yolk mixture evenly mixed into the stiff egg whites though, because every stroke with your spatula/spoon will cause the egg whites to lose a little more volume - there are ways to compensate

- It's ok for the finished mixture to be streaky after folding - stiff whites with yellow streaks of yolk mixture through it is just fine.

Into the Oven

- Spray your pan thoroughly so that the oopsies don't stick to it.

- OR you can cover your baking pan with a sheet of parchment paper.

- OR you can use a sprayed muffin top pan.

- OR place sprayed mini wilton cake pans on a jelly roll pan.

- Start by scooping a spoonful into 6 piles on the baking pan (parchment/muffin top/mini cake pans)

- Pile more oopsie batter on top of those piles

- If you find that you have unmixed yolk mixture at the bottom of the bowl, make a "well" in the piles of oopsie batter (just like making a well in mashed potatoes to hold gravy), and scoop the runny yolk mixture into them, so that it doesn't run all over.

- Bake at 300 F for 30 minutes.


What to expect:

- The oopsies will puff up as they're baking, before flattening out somewhat.

- These are not 1-1/2" high white flour hamburger buns! Mine always settle down to less than 1/2" high.

- It will take two oopsies to make a sandwich - one on the top and one on the bottom, because they're not thick enough to slice.

- If your oopsies are crumbly, check the recipe.
->The original Atkins Rev Roll only used 1 Tbsp of cream cheese per egg, resulting in a roll that was hard and crumbly when first baked (like a meringue), but when stored in an air tight container overnight, would soften.
->Cleo's Oopsies use 1 oz (2 Tbsp) cream cheese per egg. All that extra cream cheese means they're soft and pliable as soon as they come out of the oven.

- If you've checked the recipe and they're still crumbly when they come out of the oven, or if they don't appear to be done after 1/2 hour, your oven temperature may not be accurate.

- If you live in a dry climate, your oopsies will probably dry out enough to store them in a plastic bag within a few hours.

- If you live in a humid climate, they may become more moist the longer they sit out. What I do in this humid area is to bake them at a slightly higher temperature (just under 325F) to dry them out a bit more in the baking process. Then as soon as they're cooled, and are no longer moist feeling on the bottom, bag them and refrigerate.
In addition I should mention that I prefer just a tiny bit of sweet and a tiny bit of salt, as Cleo originally had in her recipe. (She changed it due to concerns about using splenda) For me, that little bit of sweet and salty seems to change the egg and cream cheese flavor just enough to make it more generic bread-like. I use the equivalent of 1/2 packet of sweetener and a smidgen (that's what it says on the tiny measuring spoon - I think it's 1/32 tsp) of salt for the 3 egg recipe, but some people prefer twice those amounts (1 packet sweetener, dash of salt), which is how much Cleo originally had in the recipe.
