Now let’s get to those recipes. And this post I’m going to give you the recipes for low carbohydrate versions of an avocado salad, guacamole dip, cheese and pepperoni chips, jalapeno Poppers and blue cheese celery slammers.
Here are the recipes:
- avocado – 1/2 of an avocado
- Olive oil – 2 teaspoons
- line – 1/4 line
- salt and pepper to taste
To make your delicious salad just slice the avocado and half and set the slices nicely on a plate and then sprinkle with the olive oil and squeeze the lime over top. Add the salt and pepper to taste. A nice little gadget that I suggest that you purchase is an avocado slicer. Since avocados are a big part of my daily diet I always make sure that we have plenty in the house. This recipe makes one serving and it only has 9 grams of carbohydrates and 246 cal.
- minced red onion – 1 tablespoon
- crushed garlic clove – 1/2 garlic clove crushed
- a ripe avocado
- 1/4 lime
- Olive oil – 1 tablespoon
- hot sauce – to taste
- salt to taste
- 1/2 tablespoon of minced cilantro
Let’s start by mincing our onion and crushing are garlic and combining them both in a bowl. Cut your avocado in half and scoop out the meat into that ball that has are garlic and minced onion. Mash the avocado with a fork. But do not make it to smooth, you should leave it a little bit chunky. Add your lime juice by squeezing the lime and then add the cilantro, hot sauce, Olive Oyl and salt. I usually like to serve mind as soon as we make it because it really doesn’t last that long. This recipe makes about two servings each of them having approximately 220 cal, 20 grams of fat, 2 grams of protein and 9 grams of carbohydrates.
Cheese and Pepperoni Chips*
- I know, I have you thinking here – what are pepperoni chips? So just continue reading and you will see what I mean.
- pepperoni slices – 1 ounce of pepperoni slices
- whipped cream cheese – 2 tablespoons of cream cheese
Place your pepperoni slices on a microwavable safe plate and microwave them for about 60 – 90 seconds or for as long as it takes for them to be crisp. Now all you have to do is spread the whipped cream cheese over top of them and enjoy. This recipe is for one serving and it contains approximately 200 cal, 7 grams of protein and 2 grams of carbohydrates.
- jalapeno peppers – 2 fresh jalapeno peppers
- cream cheese – 1.5 ounces of cream cheese
- bacon – 2 slices of bacon
First let’s start by slicing open are peppers and remove the stems and scrape out the seeds from the inside. Next put half of the cream cheese into each of the peppers. Then just take your bacon and wrap it around the pepper covering as much of it as you can. You should use a toothpick to keep this together. Next just grill or broil them until the bacon is totally cooked. And now all you have to do is eat them! This makes one serving and it has approximately 215 cal, 7 grams of protein and 3 grams of carbohydrates.
Blue Cheese Celery Slammers*
- cream cheese – 1.5 ounces of cream cheese
- heavy cream – 1 tablespoon
- crumbled blue cheese – 1 tablespoon
- garlic – 1/2 garlic clove crushed
- hot sauce to taste
- celery – 2 large celery reps
Place your cream cheese, heavy cream, blue cheese, garlic and hot sauce into a ball and mix everything together with a fork. Make sure that you stir and mashed together well to have it form a nice dip but be sure to leave a few chunks of blue cheese. When everything is mixed together well just stuff your stalks of celery with the blue cheese mixture and enjoy. This is enough for one serving and each serving has about 230 cal, 6 grams of protein and 5 grams of carbohydrates.
So there you have it, five low carb recipes that are totally delicious. I hope you enjoy these recipes is much as I do. And as always please come back to our website next week for more recipes, health and wellness tips.
