Since we were talking homeade taco seasoning, here is a post from my journal from a dear friend who was kind enough to supply me with a great recipe!

TACO SEASONING 

ingredients:


1/2 cup - chili powder

Scant 1/2 cup - cumin

Scant 1/2 cup - paprika

1/4 cup - onion powder

1/4 cup - garlic powder

1T - oregano

red pepper flakes - to taste
1/4 cup dried cilantro

This is adapted from Dana Carpender's 500 Low Carb Recipes.

I put it in a container with a tight lid and use as needed - about 1/4 cup per pound of meat.

It seems that all of the commercial ones have MSG or sugar in them. It takes a few minutes to put together, but then you are done for a while!!

a little discouraged today. One week on this fabulous way of eating (I really do like it) and I have not lost one pound and my clothes do not feel any looser.

Karra, this is a lifetime thing. Maybe you can start a journal here to really lay out all your thoughts and map out and count up all your foods and really determine what is working and what is not. Are you taking any medications/antidepressants/birth control making it harder to lose? Do you have insulin or thyroid issues? (no need to answer, just food for thought) So many things can affect weightloss beyond the food. One week is not enough time to get discouraged! Just keep going!

Wow...these are great! Just wondering how you make your potroast. I normally make mine in a crock pot with carrots and potatoes so I haven't made one since I started eating lc.

Thanks, BeeBug! mmmmmmm pot roast! I make mine in a big cast iron pot with a great fitting lid (I have a Lodge and a LeCreuset, both are awesome.) I've done both on the stovetop and in the oven with those pans. Don't let those veggies hold you back! Pot roast goes great with all kinds of lc veggies, cauliflower, for instance.

Thanks for those. Yeah, I dunno why I didn't really think about making it. I can just cook it with onions and it will be great.

Breakfast:
3 eggs scrambled in butter with Guava Smoked Salt & cracked pepper
4 slices Hormel pre-cooked bacon (still bubbly hot from the skillet!)
1 babybel cheese



Lunch:
Can Costco canned chicken breast mixed w/ mayo, sour cream, diced celery, green onion, fresh parsley, walnuts, crackled pepper, crispy fried onions
*canned chicken breast excellent in a pinch! Sounds weird, but has saved my low carb butt many a time!



Here is a pic of the crispy onions I use: They make my low carb life so tasty! Both have identical ingredients and are a product of Holland, so, same supplier. They are worth the few extra little carbs (1.5 per TBSP) for all the awesomeness they give to my food.



Dinner:
Chicken Breast (from Costco frozen individually wrapped) roasted with garlic
Jar of Trader Joe’s Red Curry Simmer Sauce (9 carbs per 1/3 cup) with added ˝ can of coconut milk (to cut the carbs a little and make extra sauce for all the chicken I cut up)
Served on a bed of baby kales sautéed in butter and garlic

Thanks for this recipe! I'm assuming it's 0 carbs.

Angela, your chicken dinner looks fantastic. Next time I go to TJ's I'll look for that sauce.

Thank you, Kristan! I have no idea how many carbs, maybe a smidge? Not enough for me to care, that's for sure! Grab a can of coconut milk, too-- it will cut the carbs and make more sauce for leftovers!

Hi Eyedoc! Do you mean the mousse? yeah, no recipe. I just made it up out of thin air one night, missing the Straciatella Gelato we had in Italy. It really is that simple-- pour in your heavy cream, dash dalt, dash vanilla, big tablespoon sweetener, melted block of baker's chocolate, and then beat it to just past the whip cream stage. Sprinkle on the amazing delicious nibs and YUM. So easy. I got addicted, so look out!

Cacao Nibs, little crunchy bits of chocolate in it's most natural form. The brand you see in the pic is Scharffen. Alone they are chocolate/bitter, but add to something sweet and they are pure low carb heaven. They are also very nutritious! I love the texture, especially with the mousse.

PS- YAY! Onions!

I just read your dinner to my BF. He said that sounds ********** delicious and ran over to my computer to take a look. And said" You can lose weight eating that" " I'd gobble up that bowl in a minute." So needless to say I will be buying some ground beef this weekend. Thanks for the great idea Angela.

haha, seriously? Glad I could help! That was one really easy last minute meal. Hacked up some fresh cauli that needed to be used, thawed out the frozen beef chubs in some warm water, fried up some onions, added the beef & garlic; boiled the cauli, strained, and mixed it all back up in the pan. Top with cheese and voila! Lazy fast one bowl dinner. You could get even more flavor if you roasted the onions and cauli together in the oven until a little browned, or caramelized the onions before the beef-- so many options. I love the one bowl meals!

Thanks, Mel! I use that chicken for all kinds of stuff. Or did you mean the sauce? I have never revisited the sauce, I'm just using plain ol' cheese nowadays. The chicken is just a big bag from Costco, the one with the individually wrapped pieces. I used to buy the cheaper bag without them wrapped, but I lost too many to freezer burn, so I spend a few bucks more and get them wrapped. They are perfect, I can stick them in the oven from frozen as needed, and cook them up as is-- so convenient and at the ready!

Cook, I got the nibs at a local store in their baking section. You may want to try a health food store, or a gourmet baker's store, or just order them online! Netrition probably sells them, there are a lot of brands out there. They would certainly be at a Whole Foods type store. If you give them a try, let me know what you think! I love them.

waffles!

Who says you have to have bacon and eggs everyday for breakfast on low carb? This waffle tasted as good as it looked! I used Maria Emmerich's recipe for protein waffles and topped it with two oz softened cream cheese mixed with one tablespoon sf strawberry Torani's. So good! And filling! And all for only 6 carbs.
