Double Chocolate Almond Low Carb Mug Cake

One of the hardest things to get used to on a low carb diet is doing without desserts. Luckily, you don’t have to, with a few substitutions you can enjoy even rich chocolate sweets that will satisfy your cravings.  You don’t even have to make a giant cake that will either get tossed out if no one else in the house is eating low carb or tempt you to overdose on it. You can enjoy your cake and eat it too with this easy and tasty single serve recipe for Double Chocolate Almond Low Carb Mug Cake. The carbs are low, especially for a chocolatey treat- around 5 net carbs, but it may differ a bit depending on the sweetener and almond milk you use. I go with sugar-free as much as possible to keep my carb count low.

Low Carb Stuffed Peppers

You may have guessed by now that I’m a big fan of stuffed peppers. They’re filling, flavorful and taste even better as leftovers. But most stuffed pepper recipes include rice, and that’s a deal breaker on a low-carb diet. The good news is that they’re just as delicious without the rice.

Crock Pot Asian Pork Chops

My husband is still rocking the low-carb lifestyle while I’m struggling to keep up, but one thing that he says helps him stay on track is trying new and interesting recipes. I love cooking pork chops in the crock pot (they make for simple low carb meals), and last week, I thought I’d try making our favorite Asian pork chop recipe a little more low-carb friendly. Here’s our lighter (carb-wise) version of Crock Pot Asian pork chops. Enjoy!

I love porkchops in the crock pot. They get so tender that they fall apart, and letting them simmer for hours injects a lot of flavor into the meat. Unfortunately, lots of crock pot recipes use cans of soup–cream of something or other– and those are not carb-friendly. These low carb crock pot pork chops don’t need any soup. They’re full of flavor, tender and moist, and one of our go-to simple low carb meals. Give them a try!

We often by frozen bags of cauliflower for steaming in the microwave, so I wondered if I could still make riced cauliflower despite the moisture from the frozen stuff. I did, and it was delicious.
