About Me

New Orleans, Louisiana, United States
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 Cooking: Lima Beans

Cooking da lima beans !!

Carbs in 1 cup of lima beans is 40 carbs.   I went to our local farmer's market yesterday and picked up some fresh lima beans.  I chopped up celery, onion, sausage and garlic. Cooked for a little under two hours. 

One cup of rice = 40 carbs.  This is  1/3 cup.  (about 13 carbs)

Finished product !!  (about 23 carbs)

For breakfast, I had a slice of wheat toast, cheese, and a banana (18 carbs)
