Anyone have any exceptional low-carb recipes to share? I've been back on the diet for a few days now (New Year's resolution), and am starting to get tired of fried meat in a fairly lowcarb sauce already!

What kind of foods are you looking for?
I have some recipes from my low carb days I could share.
What kind of carb count per serving?

Oh pretty much anything that'll fit in with that diet.

The only thing I don't really like is seafood.

This is kind of a tasty dish, but too rich for my less-LC diet:

8 ounces canadian bacon, in small cubes
8 ounces Swiss cheese, shredded
5 egg, extra large, beaten
4 tablespoons half and half
2 teaspoons parsley, freeze-dried
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup grated fresh Parmesan cheese

1. Grease 8x8 pan. Arrange cubed canadian bacon evenly over bottom.

2. Beat eggs. Add swiss cheese, half and half, pepper and parsley. Pour into pan. Sprinkle with paprika and parmesan.

3. Bake at 400 for 10-25 minutes, or until desired doneness.

Serves 4.

BTW, dj, do you like yogurt?
I have an awesome recipe that does not require a yogurt maker. It's very rich and a perfect addition to some strawberries or other LC fruit of choice.

Those look great, thanks DTOM!

And yeah, I like yogurt.

My only question is what is/where can you get low carb baking mix?

Well, you make it yourself.
This recipe does have some special ingredients, which I adlibbed from other sources.
As you may know, store bought can get expensive IF you can rind it

This goes a long way and is great for "breading" cut of meat. I never tried it for biscuits or anything like that though.
Whey protein powder makes good fruit shakes, too--another great meal idea.

1 cup soya powder
2 cups whey protein powder, alltheWhey (the brand I used, available online)
2 tablespoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons splenda

Mix well and then sift together. I store mine in the refrigerator and use in the same proportions as any recipe calling for low carb bake mix.

Per Serving : 140 Calories; 4g Fat (25.1% calories from fat); 21g Protein; 5g Carbohydrate; 2g Dietary Fiber; 20mg Cholesterol; 1275mg Sodium.
Serving = 1/2 cup. Recipe makes about 3 cups.

Just looking at the fat content (60 % of calories from fat in the one!) in those recipes....

It's more than I normally get in a day, much less one meal!
I don't really know anything about low carb diets, but is that sort of fat content normal?

parr, yes. Lo carb foods are many times high in fat. My sister lost 50 lbs on a NO carb diet. She ate eggs, meat and cheese and lost nearly all her excess weight. If your system can handle it, I support it. You'd have to read about lo-carb to understand how carbs actually hold the fat in your body. If you eat lo carb, the fat doesn't hang around.

That's the theory anyway.

That kinda fat content doesn't do well with my stomach at all. I'd be so unsettled eating just meat, cheese and eggs.

I've found in the last little while especially (i stopped eating out almost completely) that I function best with lighter fare like fruits, veggies and grains (I'm a vegetarian going on 3 months now).

I think I'll do a bit of reading on that though, it sounds interesting!

Yeah, almost no car (like less than 40 grams per day) the fat doesn't hang around. If you let the carbs creep past that, well, I stalled out.
And, as the carb count grew, I found I had to pare the fat way down too.

I lost almost 30 pounds three years ago and pretty much kept it off.
I eat more "normally" now, but lots more whole grains. (Kashi sells a nice whole grain pilaf that we like and I make my own granola.)
I eat a lot of Lean Cuisine and Healthy Choice, but you have to watch the sodium on some of those.
The only ill effect I had from extremely low card was a bout of hair loss--I was sheddin for a couple fo months as my body adjusted from mega carbs to 20-40 grams per day.
