LC Foods Low Carb Fresh Baked Pizza

Low Carb Fresh Baked Pizza Shells by LC Foods Review

It doesn’t matter if you’re Italian (Sicilian actually) like me or just the average American–we all love pizza. Before our dedication to low carb living, I’m sure we all had pizza at least once per week (and more likely 2 or 3 times each week). But all that pizza crust probably was a major contributor to our obesity before low carbing. That’s why when LC Foods asked me to review their Fresh Baked Low Carb Pizza Shells I was ready–boy was I ready.

Low Carb Pancake Mix by LC Foods

LC Foods' Low Carb Pancake Mix will take a little extra time to prepare because you need to add some fresh, low carb ingredients to it which other low carb mixes don't have you do. Some people will not want to take the little extra time to make this pancake mix but if I'm going to get a better flavor, then what's a few extra minutes?

Low Carb Fresh Baked Sub Rolls by LC Foods

Low Carb Fresh Baked Sub Rolls by LC Foods Review

As low carbers, we are so used to not having bread that the thought of having an actual submarine sandwich is too foreign to us. I remember the amazing sub sandwiches I would get in my hometown of Rochester, NY, but they were definitely not low carb. That’s why when LC Foods asked me to review their Low Carb Fresh Baked Sub Rolls, I couldn’t wait. LC Foods sells these pre-made sub rolls in a package of 3. They come ready to eat, each one weighing about 13 oz. They look, feel and smell like real sub rolls, but only have 3 net carbs per 1/2 roll. How do they accomplish this? By using resistant starches as their main ingredients.

Refusing Holiday Food and Staying Low-Carb – CarbSmart Podcast Episode 1

Refusing Holiday Food & Staying Low-Carb

CarbSmart Podcast Episode 1: Refusing Holiday Food and Staying Low-Carb can be tough at first but you can do it to avoid the Food Pushers. The holidays are straight ahead, and with them piles and piles of carby junk, and worse, people nagging you to eat the stuff. Why so many people think that saying things like "But you have to eat it! It's traditional!" and "I worked all afternoon making it just for you" constitutes an expression of holiday goodwill, I have no idea, but sadly this behavior is all too common. You need to think ahead about how to respond to this sort of thing.
