Thank you, Pure! I love those links! Alia is totally beautiful and charming and her instruction is perfect! I am thinking I can make the chicken/egg/almond filling low carb at least-- Ideal Sweetener has a Confectioner's powdered "sugar" that is awesome. The crust? I don't know, lol! Now I want Moroccan food!

welcome Angela , glad that you like it , the dough is made from white flower , water and salt only its easy to make but takes soooo much patient and practicing
it doesnt matter you can use phyllo dough or spring roll pastry feel free to try the one made from eggs or rice , I'm sure you will find a way

Hey Ang is your marrakesh the same as the one in Vegas I wonder? That is where we had our wedding reception, OMG the Bastilla, everything was pretty much low carb, sans dessert and the cous cous, and OK the bread, LOL I love it too, that was the best place for our reception! I wish we had one around here!

Love the snooty finishing salt!

You make leftovers and freezer food look good! You should have your own Food Network show....maybe in Sweden to start! Pack lots of butter first for leverage!

Amber, it is different, but very very similar! Gorgeous belly dancers and sitting on pillows and eating with your hands and I just love it.

Kitty, I never thought finishing salts would be exciting to me, but I love them! They really do add just an extra dimension of enjoyment to otherwise simple food. Boring old cold leftover turkey breast was made mighty fine with the red salt on it! LOL! The salts were a starter set from "The Meadow Shop" if anyone wants to google it and see what it's about.

Hello Angela,

I'm new here. Just wanted to let you know that I've spent quite some time drooling over all your food pictures. I started Atkins Induction again recently so I'm trying to keep my meals very simple right now but I'm getting some great ideas from your pictures. Thank you!

Vaatje! Thank you! You'll notice a lot of my food is indeed induction friendly-- meat and veg, meat and veg, meat and veg! I try to jazz it up a little to keep it interesting, but usually, just more meat and veg! The more simple you keep the food, the better the weightloss-- I've proven that to myself over and over again. I hope you are very successful and keep posting about your thoughts and triumphs and questions. Low carb is a great way to get healthy and lose fat... all by eating AWESOME FILLING SATISFYING food!

Ha! Ha! Kristan! This is some seriously easy food to put together! Well, okay, so the last photo only took a phone call and a short drive to the Chinese Restaurant for pick up, but the others were on-the-fly meals!

For Breakfast:

Heat up your pan on medium heat, add pre-cooked chopped bacon and enough butter to make it nice and slippery. (Don't be stingy with the butter!) I use kitchen shears to snip up the bacon very quickly. The bacon came from Costco, but is the Hormel Pre-Cooked variety.

At this point I also added mushrooms for what you see in the photo-- but you can add whatever veggie needs a little extra cooking, a little onion or peppers or whatever. Add the kale or spinach last, it takes just seconds for that stuff to cook.

Then add your whisked eggs, and scramble it all up! Dump on a plate, add grated cheese-- any kind you have hanging around-- and I threw a little tomato on top. Easy peasy! It can also be made into omelet form, which is usually how these things begin, but I screw them up and they become "Scrambles." lol! This is a meal I make almost everyday, just using up whatever veggies I have hanging around!

For Lunch:

Seriously, just dump it all in abowl and mix! The Artichoke Tapenade was a jar made by Gertie's I got at Costco. The crispy onions were from Trader Joe's, but they are only seasonal and not in stock at the moment. You can buy the same onions from a Kroger under their house label, if you have a Kroger-owned store near you. (Mine is Fred Meyer, they own several chains. Ralphs? QVC?)

The Chinese food I can kind of figure out how they made it (really, just meat and veg) but to get the right flavor profile? I have no idea! There should be some good recipes out there for Kung Pao Chicken... I should get to looking!

Hi aharris30! Thank you! Most of my meals are little more than throwing stuff together out of the freezer or out of cans or jars. Not too many fussy things going on! Happy Cooking!

Dinner:
2 mahi mahi fillets (from Costco frozen) baked with olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper
Salad topping: tomato, avocado, green onion, fresh basil, wine vinegar, fresh garlic, evoo, cracked pepper
Scoop cottage cheese
(This meal was created out of thin air using what was in the fridge before it all went bad! Turned out awesome! The fish mixed with the salad topping was DELICIOUS! The cottage cheese was just because we needed to use it, and it was a surprisingly good accompaniment!)

That's great, Karra! I'm looking forward to seeing your pics!

Easiest way is to open a Photobucket account and then copy/paste the photo's IMG code into the window here.

Posting these photos has really helped me stick to my plan!

No one has been able to answer me yet and I thought maybe you might be able to....can you have spaghetti squash during induction? Can you recommend a good sweet treat for induction?

Thanks for your help on posting my pictures!!! Can't wait to get started.

Yummy lunch, Karra! You almost have what my sister and I call "Meat Slugs." Take the turkey (Or any sliced meat, really) and roll up the cream cheese inside-- sometimes adding a pickle sliver or cucumber or something. Keep the photos coming!

Karra, do you have the book? I don't have mine handy. I assume the spaghetti squash is alright, as long as your daily total is less than 20 carbs. Maybe ****** (a free website) can help you keep track of how many carbs you're using in a day? Watch your tomatoes, too! They can add up fast. There is an induction thread on the boards here, I bet you will find lots of answers and inspiration--and more food photos-- there!

As for an induction dessert-- CHEATER MOUSSE! It was always my favorite. Induction doesn't allow for too much cream, but I always had more than I was suppose to. Oops. Anyway, heavy cream, cocoa powder, vanilla, salt, sweetener (Ideal or Steviva was always my choice) whip it up with some beaters until overdone-- just a little past the proper whip cream stage. Also, Chocoperfection bars are an easy and tasty one. You can also make coconut oil candy, which would probably be the best induction option. I don't have a recipe for that, but there are several here on the board if you use the search feature. It's basically melted coconut oil, cocoa, sweetener, then frozen into little cups or piles. Some add nuts or peanut butter or coconut flakes. Be wary of sweets! They are a slippery slope for me and I don't lose while eating a lot of them. For induction you are just better off with meat, fat and green veg for 14 days to truly break your carb addictions. Some people are totally fine eating sweets & other low carb products during induction, but I am not one of them. Truly, for a super successful induction, just fats, meats, green veg will really get the job done! Keep up the good work!

Oh yeah! Some people like the sugar free jello for an induction sweet.
