My wife and I have been big fans of Jimmy Moore since first meeting him on the 2012 Low Carb Cruise. His blog and podcast interviews are vital in facilitating online communication about low-carb nutrition. He is passionate and driven with regards to helping others achieve the health and well-being found in low carb living. A couple of weeks ago, I had the fortunate opportunity to record a podcast interview with Jimmy which was posted today. Thanks Jimmy!
OK low carb eaters, missing that baked potato? Here is a wonderful alternative. Take a few avocados and slice them length-wise and remove the pit. Then take your knife and slice 3 or 4 grooves in a grid-like pattern. Sprinkle some seasoning – whatever you like (I used a little salt and pepper). Lay on some of your favorite sliced or shredded cheese. Feel free to add other items such as bacon, egg, or green onion. Bake at 400 for 10-12 minutes and enjoy! I also topped with whole fat greek yogurt. Good stuff.
If you are looking for something new that might just knock your socks off, check out this recipe for cured salmon with dill and yogurt. I found it on the Fage website. As I mention in my food choices section, I prefer plain whole Greek yogurt because it contains plenty of healthy saturated fat as well as increased amounts of protein without the added sugar. Fage happens to provide this. With this particular recipe, you can leave out the sugar (which is what I did.) I also zested my first lemon – I knew I would get around to it someday :-). No, I have not given it to the kids yet, but if they don’t like it that means more for me!
