Let me say it loud and clear : I’m a huge believer in low-carbohydrate eating and I’m a Slim Cook
Low-carbohydrate diets or low-carb diets are dietary programs that restrict carbohydrate
consumption usually for weight control
. Foods high in digestible carbohydrates
are limited or replaced with foods containing a higher percentage of proteins
. If you want to feel slim around your waist line, cut down on your intake of carbs (flour, bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, etc…). You will be amazed, just after four consecutive days, of the slimness you will have, and this is without mentionning your face : your eyes will be more open, your skin will feel softer and you will have an overall of healthier being.
My heart and soul of my low-carbohydrate is meat (fish, poultry, beef, etc…), eggs, olive oil and veggies. There is no finish line for me, whatever I do to keep me slim and healthy, I have to do it for the rest of my life. I don’t believe in trash diet, going faster to the finish line, loosing it all and then, saying to myself, ok, lets eat now. NO! Eating is feeding your body with healthy food. There is no miracle way of doing it. Take responsible action : look at yourself in the mirror and say to yourself, I know how to stay slim and healthy, I have the solution inside of me, I just have to believe in myself.
Breads, cookies, muffins, cakes and the like : eat them once in a while, don’t eliminate them from your life but don’t fill up your kitchen with them either.. be sensible here, you are a very smart person… After all, you know what make you sick or what make you healthy, not a diet book or a diet program…. YOURSELF ONLY PUT YOUR FOOD INSIDE OF YOU NOT THE BOOK
Stop all that insane diet thing, pay attention to your own body and write down your own way of eating. Sale it if you want, make money with it if you want (after all many do) but never forget to use this way of eating on yourself. After all, you know best what is good for you, not others…
That been said, try new dishes and use your new found energy to help others. Focus on making your low-carbohydrates lifestyle just as enjoyable as it can possibly be.
Here is a wonderful plate of appetizer (without the starch crackers…), enjoy :
Strong cheddar cheese
Ground chicken mixed with homemade mayonnaise*(recipe included at the end of this post)
Wash the endives and divide them in single leaf. You will be able to use them as a scoop to eat any filling you have on hand (ground chicken mixed with homemade mayo).
Place the endives, cheese and apple on a plate. Serve them with the chicken mix. Enjoy!
My homemade mayo : make a quick mayonnaise in just moments :
1/4 cup of liquid egg product (come in container in the milk section of your supermarket)
1tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons of dijon mustard
1 cup of olive oil
salt, pepper and a dash of artificial sweetener (taste the mayo as you are making it in order to adjust the taste)
Mix everything together with a hand mixer and voilà! Keep very well in the fridge for about a week or so.
