It’s kind of difficult to overcome cooking a big juicy steak on the grill and using a nice fresh salad to go along with it. But there are times when low carb dieters want something a little gooier. It’s not tough to do with a little imagination.

Special Recipes

This report isn’t designed to offer you special recipes, but to inspire you to become more creative on your low carb cooking. Having a good idea of meals that go well together can provide you a whole new perspective when preparing your own meals.

The first step is to consider clear foods that go well together; cheese and meat, grains and meat, meat and cabbage, grains and meat, etc.. I use ground beef a lot as it’s very versatile and goes well with a great deal of things.

Gooey and Filling

When I need something gooey, I will take ground beef and brown it with chopped onions, salt and pepper. After it’s browned I add shredded cheese and mix it well. It’s very filling, very satisfying and extremely fast.

For Mexican Food Lovers

If you’re a lover of Mexican food and overlook it because of low carbing, brown the ground beef without placing the cheese in it. Then place the meat over some crisp chopped lettuce and top with shredded cheese and a bit of picante sauce. This makes a fantastic low carb taco salad.

Another terrific tasting Mexican food dish is a low carb chilli relleno casserole. Brown some ground beef with onions, pepper and salt. Whisk three or four eggs well and add 12 to 16 oz of half and half or heavy cream. Layer a square baking pan with whole green chilies (a few 10 ounce cans with seeds washed out). Put the beef over the layered chillies then add the egg mixture until it is pretty much at the peak of the meat. Sprinkle a generous amount of shredded longhorn cheese on the top and cook in a slow oven 30 to 40 minutes. Watch to be sure that the cheese does not get too brown. Let it sit for awhile after cooking to thicken (if you can resist it long enough).

For Pasta Lovers

Do you miss having pasta in your low carb diet? Cook a wonderful casserole using thin slices of zucchini. Brown some ground beef and make two or three layers of beef alternated with the zucchini. Add some mozzarella cheese to each coating and a few crushed tomatoes. Top this off with more cheese and cook on low heat for 60-90 minutes. This is absolutely delicious. You may even add pepperoni to each coating to help kill the craving for pizza.

Another variation of the crosses over the traces of Italian and Mexican foods. For this recipe I urge Mexican tomato sauce. It’s lower in carbohydrates and adds a little heat and zest to the dish. Any low carb tomato sauce, or even crushed berries will work.

Parboil a few cabbage leaves then cut into bite sized pieces. Brown some ground beef with cipolla, salt and pepper. Then, combine the cabbage with the beef and add the tomato sauce. Cook in a slow oven 30 to 45 minutes.

These pasta fan dishes are good to eat and good for cleaning out your system.


The idea is to develop ideas to put more variety into your low carb cooking. I do not use recipes, I shoot from the hip. If I wish to make a meat loaf, I toss a few ground beef into a bowl, then throw in an egg or two, possibly some crushed pork rinds and some chopped veggies, a little Worcestershire sauce, dry mustard, salt and pepper and proceed. I go through the fridge and the cabinet to find out what I have. If it’s low carb and I think it will work in my recipe, I put it in.

If I’m craving a certain food, I try to think about a way to make it low carbohydrate so I can have it. Use your creativity and you will not only be looking forward to eating, you will be looking forward to cooking.
