We all know the holidays can be a scary time for those watching their weight, but it doesn’t have to be! There are plenty of healthy options at the holiday table. We all know turkey is an excellent source of protein and those yummy green side dishes like creamed spinach or almond green beans are a perfect match! Missing the mashed potatoes?

It’s Sunday again! Looking for a low carb game treat? How about wings? Yes, wings! Chicken wings are easily made at home or on the grill while tailgating and are totally low carb when prepared with low carb sauces. Here are some saucy suggestions.
Italian Herb and Parmesan
Coat wings with Olive Oil, Italian Herbs, Salt and Pepper to taste. In the last 5 minutes of cooking add Parmesan cheese. If grilling, toss with Parmesan immediately after cooked and removed from grill.
Put olive oil, butter (1 to 1 ratio) and minced garlic in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave until butter is melted. Brush wings with butter mixture before grilling or baking. Salt and pepper to taste. Make additional sauce for dipping or pouring over after cooked.
Franks Red Hot Sauce…has no carbs!! Brush on wings before grilling or baking and have some extra on the side for dipping.
Have a great low carb wing recipe? Please share! Let’s get ready for some football!
We hear lots of talk about fiber and getting enough etc, but what about on a low carb high fat diet? Yes, fiber is still your friend! Carbohydrates in the form of fiber have no impact on your insulin levels, therefore does not impede fat loss. In fact, fiber often enhances weight loss by keeping things moving in your digestive system; however, be cautious on your choice of fiber! Just because the front of a product says its high fiber doesn’t mean you should eat it! Read labels carefully! An ideal high fiber product will have very little net carbs (Carbs – Fiber = Net Carb). For instance, in my previous recipe blog I mentioned Garden of Life Super Seed. This is a fiber product that has zero net carbs! There are other similar type products out there. One lower cost option for fiber is to just add ground flaxseed to shakes, soups, whatever! Personally I like to mix it up and use various products. I like Arbonne Fiber Boost also because it is tasteless and mixes easily in shakes. It has 12 grams of fiber and only 3 net carbs.
Garden of Life Super Seed can be found in health food stores and some health conscious grocery stores.
Ground flaxseeds can be found in health food stores or you can buy whole and grind your own.
Arbonne Fiber Booster can be found at http://tanyacolee.myarbonne.com
If you have a favorite low net carb fiber product, please comment and let me know!
