One of the more difficult things about a low-carb diet is the lack of pasta. The easy way to solve that problem is by making noodles from zucchini. Not only are they Low-Carb, Gluten-Free, satisfying and delicious, but they are very pretty. This Poppy Seed Zoodle recipe is absolutely scrumptious! I like to serve them with Mushroom Garlic Chicken or fish. Even the non-low carbers in my family love these!
Back in an earlier lesson, I gave you a recipe for a Zapple-based dessert. Now, I give you Crockpot Zapple Wedges; the perfect Low-Carb hot “apple” recipe that can be used as a side dish when serving pork.

Many low-carbers tend to rely too heavily on broccoli, asparagus, and cauliflower. They omit most legumes because the assumption is that beans are too high in carbs. And in fact, many are too high. Green beans however, are just fine for the low-carber who is staying on plan and listening to their body. The Technicolor Green Bean recipe is just such a recipe. It is low in carbs, Gluten-Free, delicious, and it pairs well with any type of entrée.
When I began removing all the processed foods from our pantry, I was very hesitant to let go of my Huy Fong Sriracha sauce. But as I read the ingredient label, I knew it had to go. So what’s a girl to do when her favorite condiment is no longer allowable? She begins experimenting and makes her own. Bear in mind that most sriracha is fermented. Because I don’t have the patience to wait, I created a version that does not require the fermentation process. This Low-Carb Gluten-Free sriracha sauce will last about 2 weeks in the fridge or much longer in the pantry if you can it. You can of course make a big old mess of wings and use it up immediately.
My Field of Greens Salad is one I save for fancier meals. It makes the perfect Low-Carb Gluten-Free salad for a formal meal or for a date night with your honey. Not only does it look elegant on the plate, but it is packed full of nutrients. I would suggest preparing this salad on individual plates rather than family style. Pour your favorite dressing into a pretty salad oil bottle or small pitcher and let everyone pour their own dressing.
Perfect with almost any meal, Low-Carb Gluten-Free creamed spinach is one of my favorite side dishes. Because it is so rich and creamy your kids won’t even mind the spinach; mine have grown to love it! You can use fresh spinach in this recipe, but I find the frozen to be a little quicker and easier to work with when creaming. If you have leftovers try adding some to an omelet for an extra special treat.
