    Just making an index for low-sugar, low-carb recipes for those watching their health.


    Make this jambalaya without the rice. Or shred a whole cauliflower, saute a few minutes in a little oil, and pour the jambalaya over the top. Or use TVP soaked in some broth for a rice substitute.



    Substitute the Sugar Free Lemon Meringue Pie type crust for a graham cracker crust in this Chocolate Cream pie: Look for the low carb alterations a couple posts down. is what it is...

        That sounds good, but totally NOT low carb. Just cutting back a little here or there doesn't get the carbs down enough to be considered LOW carb. This has 34.1 carbs minus 3 for fiber for a total of 31 which is more carbs than I try to eat in a day!

        There are ways to make a low carb "apple" crisp. Let me find the recipe and post it.

        Nutty Apple Crisp

        Makes 10-12 servings

        2 medium-sized apples, thinly sliced (1/4" thick)
        2 chayotes, thinly sliced
        1/4 cup organic lemon juice
        2 tablespoons water
        For ALL NATURAL sweetening, use all three of the following:
        -6 tablespoons erythritol
        -Pure stevia extract, to taste
        -1/2 teaspoon blackstrap molasses
        1 cup nut meal (almond, pecan, hazelnut, etc.)
        1/2 cup chopped nuts (I like pecans and walnuts)
        1 tablespoon flax meal
        1 tablespoon oat flour (optional)
        2-3 teaspoons cinnamon
        1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
        1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
        1/4 cup butter
        1/4 teaspoon xanthan or guar gum (optional, firms up the filling)

        Peel and slice apples and chayotes, tossing apples in a bowl with 2 tablespoons lemon juice and placing chayotes in a microwave safe dish. Add the other 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, water, and 3 tablespoons of the erythritol to the chayotes, stirring the squash around to coat. Microwave for 12-14 minutes on high or until fork tender, stirring half way through the cooking process. Remove from microwave and let cool. Taste and add additional sweeteners to the chayotes if necessary. You want them to be as sweet as the apples.

        Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

        Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Melt butter in the microwave until liquified. Whisk in erythritol, blackstrap molasses, and vanilla extract. Mix with dry ingredients until crumbly. Taste and add additional sweetener to the topping if necessary. Add chayotes to bowl of apples and fold in xanthan gum thoroughly. Butter a baking dish, and fill it with layered chayote and apple slices. Sprinkle with crumb topping. Bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes, or until crisp is bubbly and browned. Crisp the top under the broiler setting for a few minutes if necessary. Let cool for 10 minutes. This is best eaten fresh, so make a small batch if you have to!

        ~5.5 grams net carbs per serving

        Serve with fresh whipped cream and garnish with cinnamon sticks (50 cents in the Mexican aisle!) for a classy touch is what it is...
