Stocking my kitchen for my new low-carb cleansing.... further recs?

Elise | Aug 26, 2005 11:27 PM

As my previous post mentioned, am quite a carb addict, esp for pasta, bread, rice.... and feel best when doing low-carb.

So looking for favorite recs to have on hand.

Here's my list:

Soy Slender Milk --mmmm; also great in blended shakes

Low-carb cereals -- ie "Hi/Low" at d'Agostino; and other hot cereals from "Keto", seem to have to order online

Various low-carb puddings and shakes from Atkins, et al

"Men's Bread" -- delicious, found in the frozen bread section of Whole Foods, Time/Warner bldg; 5g carbs/ slice, loaded w/ seeds and tasty flavor

Peanut butter

Sugar & calorie-free jam, by Walden Farms

Maple syrup, very low calorie by Vermont ?? Many brands available)

Danon Low-Carb yogurt -- just 5g per tiny little tub, but satisfies the craving

Hot sauce -- Chololo is my fave

Eggs -- have 2-3 egg whites and half an egg yolk for flavor and color for brkfst lunch or dinner

Veggie burgers -- the low carb ones, 2g or less


Low-carb pasta sold by Atkins, a Japanes brand in the refrigerated-end of Whole Foods, d'Agostino, etc

A fish fillet or two in the freezer; and a filet of beef, and a chix breast

Deli, from-the-bone turkey; ham; salami/ prosciutto to garnish salads, veggie sandwiches on low-carb bread

Fresh herbs

Whole Foods' low-fat dill sauce, sold in the fish dept -- incredible

Chix, veg, beef stock for an impromptu soup

Radishes, cukes, mesclum, a few grape tomatoes (need the occasional fruit -- and great in sandwiches!), asparagus, broc, caul, bell peppers, sprouts, most veggies except those in the potato family.....

Looking for other recs, as my metabolic system simply goes wild with carbs, with ever-increasing desires for more and more, and an ever-increasing waistline!!!
