Low Carb Meals Are Easy To Prepare!

Having access to all the recipe websites such as recipezaar, allrecipes and cdkitchen, etc, just to name a few and that is not listing all the lowcarb sites and blogs where there is a wealth of recipes, it is not difficult at all to find whatever recipe you need. I go to the recipe sites and put "low carb" into their search box and usually get pages. Sometimes I find recipes that are not really low carb but can make the changes to them to make them acceptable to me.
Using vegetables in place of noodles or rice has become second nature to me. My husband is willing to eat my low carb foods as long as they taste good. He KNOWS it is a healthier food plan but has a hard time giving up bread, sugar and snacks, though he has replaced potato chips with peanuts. I notice though that if he buys the peanuts he gets the honey flavored ones and I get the regular ones.
It is true that most people think that low carb means no carbs. So hard to get that through their heads. I told the girl in the grocery store the other night that I eat low carbs and she wanted to know how long I have to stay on that. I told her "forever!" She said she knows she eats all wrong because she lives alone and gets something frozen and brings it home and microwaves it. I think microwaves are really bad for you and would never have one in my house so I felt pretty bad for her. I told her low carbs does not mean no carbs it means meat, cheese and lots of vegetables. She was surprised about that. As most people are.
It does seem to me that if you have a family, including children you would want to start them eating this way. Just start cooking this way. Provide low carb snacks and they will change. It is a little more work but if a member of your family had a health problem and had to eat a certain way wouldn't you be willing to do it for them? Of course you would! So instead of waiting for them to get a health problem start making homemade food for your family that is low carb and they would never even realize it.
One thing I like to do instead of sandwiches is making a antipasto platter. Set that out on the table for a snack. Everyone can snack on it and you can put what you want on it. If you can find an old cook book or if you have some, they are a goldmine of recipes. The ones I like are from the 1930's-1950's and have recipes for sandwiches using meat that you chop or grind up with mayo, olives, hard boiled eggs, banana, peanut butter, anchovies, chopped onion or vegetables, cream cheese, cream, etc. Nobody seems to make those type of sandwich fillings anymore. I remember my grandmother did and they were good. Just be sure to put them on something low carb!
