Yay I made a new meal and all low carb!
Thursday, July 09, 2009
So my dad and I are both low carbing. He has been for like 2 months and has lost 35 lbs. And I have been for a week and a half and well, I haven't lost anything. But I am chalking that up to my ever changing new momma hormones, stopping the breastfeeding, and retaining water like I am about to fill a pool lol. I have not quit and that is what counts lol.
Anyway, we have been thinking of new ways to cook things so we don't get completely bored. At this point all our dinners are low carb but we eat the same meals all the time. Just rotate the same 6 meals or so. Anyway, I had gotten some pork rinds for the crunchiness and I thought we should try to use them to "fry" stuff. So tonight, I experimented and made fried zucchini and chicken parmesan. It was so good and super filling. The crushed pork rinds worked great! And it tasted really close to the real thing. I was very happy about that. Last night I had made cabbage lasagna but I didn't follow a recipe (I am just doing them by common sense way of thinking). Anyway, I later read that you should boil the cabbage first, which I didn't do. It turned out ok. My mom liked it. Athen said he liked it, although as my husband I think he is more likely to say it is good even if it isn't the best lol. My dad was not a huge fan. I was ok with it. I wanted the cabbage to have less flavor and be less crunchy. That is where boiling it first would have been good. But overall, it was ok.
Well, this is my food update. As I am doing the low carb thing, I am not tracking my food so much. So I figure I can at least do it a little this way.
