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!!

Superbowl Party -- Low Carb Style !!!!

Who can forget our home town boy, Peyton Manning ???




It's that time of year again... another reason to forget about the carbs, but you don't have too ! Check out these ideas and recipes below and become the life of the party :)


Low Carb Super Bowl Party!

A low carb party? Is it possible? Yes! Here are ideas for your Super Bowl Party this Sunday, with finger foods and classic Super Bowl fare – only low in starches and sugars.When people walk in the door there should be nibbles out, such as these Five Minute Sweet and Spicy Pecans. And since vegetables should always near the center of any food event, have a platter of raw and blanched veggies for dipping, along with some healthy Garlic Parmesan Flax Crackers. For dips, try my Super-Easy Guacamole or Four Red Pepper Dip (a yummy blend of sweet, spicy, smoky, and piquant red chilis).


If you and your guests will be drinking alcoholic beverages, be sure to Check the Carb Counts First.Next, we move on to those Super Bowl Classics, Wings and Chili. For something different, try Chicken Wings with Spicy Peach Dipping Sauce and the unusual but very tasty Cincinnati Chili. Your guests will be asking, “What’s in that chili?” Make them guess!


Another option is to serve pizza made with Flax Meal Pizza Crust.


For dessert, what could be better than something delicious and portable like brownies? If you pass these Miracle Brownies around, I guarantee your guests will be giving you compliments about the intense chocolate flavor – it won’t occur to them that these confections could possibly be sugar-free, low carb, and really nutritious. A nice thing about these recipes is that they can all be made ahead. You can enjoy the game instead of hanging out in the kitchen - so kick back and have fun! More Low Carb Super Bowl Party Ideas
Put your party ON !!!

Wow, Harry! Thanks! No time to try them today, but very soon-they all sound wonderful. And it looked like plenty of normal-seeming, sweet stuff that would make you feel un-deprived.
