A Low-Carb Lifestyle Should Never Be Boring!

I hear people say, "I'm bored with low-carbing." Have you ever said that? I certainly have. When I was a 15-year-old on a low-carb diet, I ate ground beef patties, salads with ranch dressing, cottage cheese, cheddar cheese, tuna salad, and pork rinds until I was ready to spit! My mom was not going to buy steaks and lamb chops just for me, although I would not have argued. I got bored, so I stopped.

Now, at 58 years old, I have  low-carb cookbooks, apps, podcasts, and a recipe file all on my iPhone. My Everlovin' Low-Carb board on Pinterest expands daily. How did I manage in 1973 with only the recipes from Dr. Atkins' Diet Revolution?

With all of these resources, it would seem impossible to be bored. Yet, if we are lazy or uninspired, we become repetitive and unoriginal. Our meals need to be fresh and sometimes surprising. I may not always follow a recipe, but I make sure that I have a variety of food items—in my fridge and pantry—to remain imaginative.

  1. Make coffee (we like French Press) and pour into a 6-8 ounce coffee cup.
  2. Add a pat of butter (optional) and 2-3 tablespoons of whole cream.
  3. Include 4-5 drops of Dark Chocolate Better Stevia Liquid Sweetener.
  4. Stir or use an immersion stick. Blend together and sprinkle with cocoa powder!
