Since my granddaughter has been doing the Atkins diet and a full work out at the gym ( she has lost 65 lbs ) she is allowed 2 tbs peanut butter, she has incorporated either 10 grapes or 1 apple, all veggies but carrots, tomatoes and certain squash, carb counts even deducting fiber is still off the charts and carbs turn to sugar. We are lucky her Dr. is on the same diet so we exchange a lot of snack and meal recipes.

Her diet it high protein plus a protein supplement drink after her work outs, she has eliminated all bread, fried foods, rice, potatoes , pasta, she is allowed 50 carbs a day but stays around 20-30, cauliflower has been a god sent for snacks, pizza crust, mock potato salad and many other ways to fix it.

She has great will power, plus she is able to eat all meats she wants, I make a pumpkin pie that is a total freebee on carbs as the fiber count is higher than carb, it has a pecan crust instead of pastry, she can have coleslaw, mayo is a low carb as are most salad dressings, whipped topping is allowed, sugarfree jello with 4 cut up strawberries and topping, I make a meringue cookie that is zero carb using artificial sweetener in place of sugar, seafood is allowed, bacon , eggs, and she uses pork skins for dipping homemade dips, cheese is allowed so by slicing it thin baking it makes a cheese chip along with pepperoni baked all allowed, I make fruit dip with cream cheese and zero carb marshmallow dip, also zero carb caramel for her apples.I have discovered a whole new way to cook eliminating sugars and still have traditional foods, I substitute crushed pork skins for bread crumbs and it works great.

NOLA Crawfish-Stuffed Deviled Eggs



INGREDIENTS
•8 large eggs
•2 tablespoons butter
•1/2 small onion, finely diced
•1/2 stalk celery, finely diced
•1 small jalapeno, finely diced
•1/2 small poblano, seeded and finely diced
•1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
•1 teaspoon paprika
•salt & pepper
•1/2 pound crawfish tails (16 whole pieces reserved, the remainder roughly chopped)
•2 teaspoons fresh chives, minced
•1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (1/2 lemon)
•3 tablespoons mayonnaise
•1 tablespoon Creole mustard

DIRECTIONS

Place eggs in a saucepan and cover them with cold water, not too deep. Place on burner on HIGH heat. Once they start to boil turn on the timer to 3 minutes.
When the timer goes off, quickly take off the heat, put on the lid and reset the timer to 8 minutes. When 8 minutes are up, take to sink and run cold water over them for about a minute, let them soak a bit to cool off. Once the eggs are cool, peel and cut them in half lengthwise, separating the yolks from the whites. Set both aside.

In a large skillet, melt the butter over low heat and add the onions, celery, jalapenos, poblanos, and spices. Season with salt & pepper. Cook for 4 minutes to sweat the vegetables. Add the crawfish and cook for another 5 minutes. Let the mixture cool.

Put the cooked egg yolks in a mixing bowl and mash them with a fork or potato masher. Add the lemon juice, mayonnaise and mustard and mix to combine. Fold in the cooled crawfish mixture.

Spoon the crawfish mixture into the cooked whites. Transfer to a serving platter and sprinkle with chives and top each with a crawfish tail.

Chocolate Cream Cheese Fruit Dip

1 8oz. package of cream cheese, softened (leave it on the counter for an hour or so)
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 8oz. tub of Cool Whip, thawed and divided
Mini chocolate chips for garnish (optional)
Fruit of your choice

Directions:

Put the softened cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Use your hand mixer to fully combine.
Add the cocoa powder and mix that in with your mixer, too.
Add 3/4 of the tub of Cool Whip. Just use a knife to ‘cut’ it in half and then in half again so you have four relatively equal parts. Scoop out 3 of those parts and add to the cream cheese mixture and mix until well combined.
Put your chocolate dip in a serving dish.
Use a fork or a whisk to stir and fluff up the remaining 1/4 of the Cool Whip left in the container so it’s really smooth. Dollop on top of the chocolate dip.
Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips if desired.
Serve with your favorite fruit. Store in the refrigerator.

I use the chocolate coolwhip and substitute Splenda for sugar for gbaby's diet

Crispy Crab Nuggets

1 pound fresh crab meat
3 slices of white bread, crust removed or packaged bread crumbs
1 egg beaten
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
1 tablespoon parsley

Put breadcrumbs in food processor so they are chopped up fine(to save time). In a large bowl, mix together egg, mayonnaise, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, and Old Bay seasoning. Add breadcrumbs and crab meat and mix by hand to avoid breaking up too many of the lumps. You may need to break up the very large lumps however so the crab balls will stay together. Shape into 24 balls and fry in batches in hot oil until golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels. Serve with your favorite sauce or don't use any! These are so good!

That site really loads up on one page. I hate it when designers puts too much stuff on one page, makes things load slower and the page heavy. People with slow connections would have trouble with that, but fortunately I have a very fast connection, so fast they call it roadrunner. lol
