About Me

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!!

The Strands of Time..

What a difference a single week can make ! Ash Wednesday changes the mood from revelry to recovery. No one understands this better than New Orleanians (and possibly, new mothers.)Today, most stand silently at Mass -- a time for introspection and self-deprivation that comes to this mostly Catholic city with the arrival of Lent.

This journey is a time for doing penance from the dietary excess, oh wait -- aren't we already doing that ? Being low-carb fits in perfectly with the Lenten season.

I'll try to think of many "Lenten low carb dishes'' and conjure up a few with my Southern twang taste. Seafood, no doubt. Veggies for sure. Let's see what we can 'dish' out during our Lenten
journey. I'll have to check the carb count on the recipes shown below.

Yall have a Blessed evening :)


Food Count :

Lunch : Catfish & potato salad tomato wedge on the side.

Supper -- Egg salad on toasted low carb bread machine bread
