Looking for recipes-no sugar, starch, grain, transfats

Hubby went to see the cardiologist and was told he has "small particle LDL" or pattern B LDL in his lipid panel. This is very nasty stuff. After reading some of the studies, we've chosen low carb as the way to go. Along with large amounts of niacin, exercise and weight loss, the idea is to get your triglycerides very low. Contrary to the conventional low fat, whole grain cardiac diet which may lower the total LDL but leaves just the small particle LDL, some advocate a diet similar to the new Adkins but without any grains as well. We can use fruit, dairy, nuts, meat, non starchy veggies, monounsaturated oils, eggs and very dry European wine. We've also used blueberry juice(without sugar or white grape juice added).The idea at some point is to add additional foods as long as they don't bump your blood sugar. Anyway I am trying to come up with some ideas/recipes. The upside to this so far is you don't get hungry and you seem to lose weight without counting exactly what you are eating. Thanks.

Here is the ingredient list of a pumpkin bread I made, an acquired taste.

2 cups ground almond meal
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup sour cream
15 oz canned pumpkin
2 medium to large eggs
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
4 tablespoons butter, melted
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
nutmeg
vanilla
stevia to taste
1 tsp salt
