This blog is dedicated to the low-carb menu challenge presented by Jimmy Moore. I'm living the Louisiana low carb lifestyle, where low-carb is the new way to go ! I live southwest of New Orleans, Louisiana....have three awesome kids. We are deep down in the heart of sweet Cajun Country, where we kick back and relax, go hunting, fishing, or make groceries! My doctor told me that my blood pressure numbers were getting too high, so I had to loose weight. She challenged me with ten pounds in three months. That was October 7, 2008. I lost 26 pounds !!! In February of 2011, I found that I had gained a few pounds more than I would have liked, weighing in at 170 pounds. I had to get back into the swing of living the low carb life again !! I am loving the 'low-carb' style and wish to contiue it . I exercise three times a week at the gym, and off the 'off' days, I learn to RELAX !! November 2011, finds me in different circumstances -- a new lifestyle, great community of friends and a challenge to keep that 45 pounds that I lost OFF. Feel free to read my blog, browse around, or just sit a spell!!

Low Carb Slow Cooking .... Today's dish -- Italian Chicken




The loaf of low carb bread I made in the bread machine this afternoon came out wonderful ! Check out the height on that puppy !
The crock pot slow cooker low carb meal consisted of veggies and skinless boneless chicken breasts. Boy those breasts were SO tender, they practically fell apart. And the flavors, oh my ! I threw in a can of Meir Glen oven fired tomatoes.. It was simply carbilicious !!! To even out the dinner plate, I had some lettuce and tomato topped with Ranch dressing !
This is my first low carb slow cooker meal.. I cant wait to try another.. What's your favorite low carb slow cooker meal ?

That's looks great, BayouBabe. :)

We love a good chuck roast - for slow cookin'.

I also really like making hearty stocks in our crock pot. Mmmm. They're a great base for LC veggie soup.

Yeah, you would think its a whole new science or something ? If you google or search on Amazon, or just search there are tons of low carb slow cooker recipes and books out there for the same.

I had enough for four small portions for me. I froze them.. Yummy !!

Babybabe, my favorite slow cooking low carb recipe is the one that I can share at a friend;s house! So next time I am in your neck of the woods would you care to share? I have a funny, at least in my opinion, saying! In my country we say " Eat a hearty breakfast, then go to your friend's house and share a lunch with him or her, and give a dinner to an enemy! But Jewish people say " Eat a hearty breakfast, share a nice lucnh with a friend, snatch away a dinner form an enemy and eat it for breakfast!
