Real Low Carb High Fat Recipes
You can eat all the foods you see above and lots more on a Low Carb High Fat meal plan. Yes I know they look like any other foods you may see rest assured, they are not. Your weight will drop off and you will feel better. If it looking scary then you are in the wrong place. I have maintained my weight for over 8 years so if anyone tells you low carb high fat can’t work long term they are either lying to you or they are ignorant. There are millions of people worldwide who are eating this way and they don’t care what their doctors or other people say. I can tell you from experience, I am one of those people. Yes, I am a diabetic and have never taken any medicine, including insulin, and expect I never will. I am in the camp, as of this writing, that there is no “cure for diabetes” but you can sure help yourself by eating low carb, and getting off at least some of your medications. I am not here to tell you what to do, but I do provide you with the tools to do it yourself.
That was then & this is now and it seems the whole world got it wrong. What follows are my takes on recipes I could not live without. I can take most any recipe and make them into a Real Low Carb High Fat Recipe and they stay in my head and have never been put to paper. Long ago and far away I wrote a tiny book on sauces and come to think about it some of them are already low carb in that I use 40% heavy cream by the half gallon and heavy cream is the base for many sauces and soups. Yeah, maybe I’ll post some of them at some point.
You will notice that I do not advocate the use of organic fruits & vegetables or grass-fed & organic meats and there is a reason. Though this is mostly what I do, many people are intimidated and let’s face it-it is an extremely expensive life-style. I think if you cannot afford to eat organic then if you are at least eating REAL foods and cooking from scratch, you are way ahead of most people in this country. I do not like Whole Foods Market for reasons explained elsewhere but here in Portland Town we have New Seasons Markets which are kind of mini-Whole Foods and whatever New Seasons doesn’t have there are dozens of specialty markets to fill my needs quite adequately.
Cooking real food does takes time. It does not mean opening a can or grabbing something from the frozen food isle in the grocery. It means picking the best ingredients you can afford and fixing yourself and/or your family meals from these ingredients. Living a LCHF lifestyle takes time, commitment, and usually a whole change to a Low Carb Pantry, refrigerator, and freezer and once it is done you may wonder why you didn’t do it long ago.
This will be slow for me, as I said the recipes are in my head and need to be put on paper. So what you find here are just good, tasty, low carb from scratch food recipes. Listen, I’m a chef, not an internet genius. Many of the recipes may look more complicated than what you may be used to, but most come together quite easily and usually the more ingredients you incorporate the more complex the flavors.
Let it be said here, now and upfront that I AM NOT a food blogger. I leave that to Carolyn Ketcham, Jennifer Eloff, Linda Genaw and the many, many other very talented Low Carb Food Artists and Bloggers and please…visit that page here.
As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.
