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!

LC Foods sent me a package of 3 LC-NY Style Plain Bagels. The bagels were fresh and looked like real bagels. The first few ingredients are wheat protein isolates, resistant wheat starch, flaxseed meal, olive oil, and vital wheat gluten. These ingredients give the bagels their look, smell and feel. The sweeteners used are organic stevia rebaudiana and natural lo han guo monk fruit which combined helps give the bagel a slightly sweet taste. A great treat for low carbers looking to have an occasional bagel.
