La Vida Low Carb

So, it is ‘that’ time of year…Super Bowl is over, Mardi Gras is over…no more good excuses not to watch what I’m eating.  Time to try to get rid of the holiday damage.  I don’t mind calorie counting…if I want a small indulgence, I can do extra exercise to compensate, BUT darling husband prefers the low carb route (he lost over 100 lbs doing it, so we know it works for him).  These two methods don’t really work together.  To avoid temptation and cooking 2-3 different meals (I still have to cook for the kids, ya know)…I am going to play along with the low carb thing.  Problem:  I (heart) carbs!  So I have to practice my will power, especially when I’m mixing up the mac & cheese for the kiddos. 

I know I’m not alone in my endeavor, so here a few ideas for y’all…

Roasted Chickpeas 

I made a double batch of these (in the regular oven), when I make another batch…I will do 1 can in the toaster oven.  I cooked mine for 55 minutes & lots didn’t get crisp…the ones that were crispy were fabulous!  I tried just olive oil & kosher salt.


cauliflower pizza

I haven’t tried this one yet, but our usual Friday night fare is pizza…maybe tonight!  I hope it is good, because we love our pizza.


roasted cauliflower

This is my favorite way to fix cauliflower!  It is also a great method for broccoli, asparagus, and green beans!  YUM!  Even great when I’m not avoiding carbs like the plague.


seared tuna

As soon as my favorite place to get ahi tuna has it…we will be having this.  It is easy, but you really need sushi grade tuna to do it.  I think I am going to follow Chef Anne Burrell’s method.  I saw her prepare it on Secrets of a Restaurant Chef, and both DH & I were salivating!  Don’t be afraid of the rareness!  It is DELICIOUS!

Today’s secret revealed…when I met DH he pretty much ate ‘normal’…not at all adventurous…amazing what 13+ years with me has done to him…he tries things now just for the sake of trying something new!  Yes, I’m mentally patting myself on the back, but he would totally admit that I did that for him.
