Shape magazine – My top 5 low-carb meals!

6 Dec

Ew I HATE being “this girl”, but hey, we all gotta buckle down sometimes for whatever reason.

Shape magazine asked me to make a list of my favorite low-carb meals, since I am a firm believer in NOT calorie counting — for my body type at least. Listen, I’ve tried EVERYTHING in the quick-weight-loss book. And trust me, I know it’s literally just a quick fix — but sometimes, that is all I need. I need to drop a few pounds quickly, then go back to normal life. Is it the most healthy thing to do? Probably not. I’m not a doctor but I still know that a consistent, healthy lifestyle is probably best. But is it realistic? No. We can’t be perfect all the time, I’d go bonkers.

Anyhow, some of the recipes have been posted here before, some have not. Check it out HERE when you get a chance!

    first off, love your blog, and you are my favorite twitter feed.

    i love the ham cups (although i like to call them “meat muffins”), so i wanted to make your stuffed peppers…but i didn’t read the recipe BEFORE i went grocery shopping, so i just made them with what i had. filled my peppers with lemon-pepper chicken i had baked up (extra from dinner, holler for multi-tasking!) and sausage bits (left over from making meat muffins for the week!), cheeeeese and some little pieces of zucchini.

    mmmmmmmm…they turned out really good!

    keep updating your blog with low-carb recipes, it’s super helpful and yours are more fun to read than others.

    catfish is next on my list!

    I just discovered your blog and love it! The food looks great and your cooking directions are funny as hell. Can’t wait to try out some of the recipes with fish.

    I agree that this is so helpful and refreshing that you are honest about the hard work you put in to look great. I know this is a food blog, but it would be really helpful to hear about your workout routine (if you have one). Obviously diet is the more important part of looking great, but if you have a fitness routine that works I would love to hear it!

    Found a breakfast idea that you might want to add to the ham egg cups. Cook an egg in an avocado, (for the gal who loves avocado!)

    Love this blog. I stole the Thai Beef Salad recipe. It was AMAZING (the recipe, that is… although my post was pretty good, too) and VERY easy to make.

    I just tried your beef salad recipe! Thank you so much! It was easy to make and most importantly, delicious! I can’t wait to try the others! On another note, thank you for being honest and funny. Love your bloq!

    Let’s just say I was going to attempt a low carb week, but during that low carb week I will be spending time with some non low stress folks. I’m going to need a drink – what would you suggest?
