Low Carb Food Reviews
Here you will find reviews on pre made low carb foods. This section includes one of my favorites… beef jerky. This is one of my go to snacks when I’m on a low carb day. One thing to be aware of is that a lot of beef jerky will sneak in a ton of sugar that will really screw up your low carb meal plan.
I have some pretty good prepared low carb foods in store for this section such as a lo carb noodle review and an egg white product. One of my main staples when low carb dieting is eggs and these egg whites are a quick way to get a ton of clean protein. I’ve been trying of this protein pudding that is pretty low carb and I will be reviewing that shortly.
Low Carbohydrate Snacks Snacking for me personally is a must when I’m eating low carb. I need to have some sort of snack ready for when I get a hankering for something crunchy, salty or just plain satisfying. I think that having easy to get snacks are part of the success of the low carb high fat diet, it’s too easy to get a high carb snack at any convenient store but finding a low carb alternative can sometimes be challenging. Below are a list of some of my favorite low carb snacks. Cheese Chips With LCHF you quickly realize that the chips and nachos are a memory. But there are good options. Here we have made the chips of regular cheese. Easy to make low carb cheese chips: Ingredients: Cheese (fat, preferably stored) Butter Possibly spices to taste Do this: Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Grease a plate. The more you buttering the flatter your chips will be. Obviously there is a limit somewhere with lubrication. Grate the cheese. Place small mounds of grated cheese on the greased plate. Garnish possibly with any spice. Leave approximately equal intervals between the piles as they are wide or you will get a giant blanket of ostchips. Bake in the oven until they get the desired hardness and color. Keep in mind that solidifies into a little when you take them out. Burnt cheese is moreover not very good. Test when they are ready: Poke with a knife during a chip, if you find that you can lift the whole thing in one piece, they start to become clear. Suitable for: The nachos / tacos or whatever you prefer to call it. As a snack, that they are. Peanuts with very little carbohydrates I thought a few weeks ago that I had found the peanuts with the lowest proportion of carbohydrates . The other day I found a variety that had actually even less. Exotic Snacks are the manufacturer and the proportion of carbohydrates is actually as little as 4g / 100g. Now I feel even more ok to take a handful of movie cosiness. I bought the bag weighs one kilogram, and cost $9.99. A really big one, in other words. Should be enough for a long time. Power Pak Protein Pudding I take these along with me for a quick and ready snack. These are made by MHP and you can get them in a 4 pack. They come in chocolate, vanilla and butterscotch. Almonds I usually buy a big bag of regular lightly salted almonds whenever they’re on sale. On large bag will usually last me about one week. Macadamia Nuts Macadamia nut are low in carbs and high in fat so they make a great LCHF snack. They tend to be quite more expensive than almonds but I think they may be the lowest carb content of all the nuts.
Review of Miracle Noodle. How can it be low carb and be a noodle? Alright so I did some research on Miracle Noodle before I ordered it and in full disclosure it’s not a noodle made from the typical noodle-ly ingredients. Miracle Noodle is actually made from a plant specifically the Konjac plant. They take the fiber from the Konjac plant and make it into a noodle that is carb free and calorie free. I ordered right off the Miracle Noodle website and got the sample pack so I could give you my review of a bunch of different varieties. Pretty simple and straight forward. I was actually quite surprised how fast these came considering that I’m on the East Coast and Miracle Noodle is based on the West Coast. So as far as ordering and shipping I would have to give them props. Miracle Noodle Coupon Code Save 10% They came USPS and I couldn’t wait to get them open and check them out. I didn’t realize that these noodles are packaged in water that needs to be drained before using. Here’s a quick video of what came in the pack. These noodles have been featured in many different places like Dr. Oz, Rachel Ray and Men’s Health Magazine. In the instructions they say that they give off an odor of the Konjac plant. I haven’t opened any of my packages yet but I will report back on this “odor”. I will be trying out all of the noodles this week and will report back on each one. Garlic And Herb So my first try at cooking and eating these noodles was with the garlic and herb flavored noodles. As far as odor they do have a little fishy smell but not too overpowering. The package says to rinse them for about 10-15 seconds but I went a little longer. In my research I have found that the longer you rinse them the less the odor. These cooked up pretty easy, just bring some water to a boil and cook for about 2 minutes. I actually went a little long on the cook time and have later found out that cooking them too long may make them a little rubbery. They do tend to stick together when cooking and the noodles are really long so it may be a good idea to cut them with scissors or a knife before cooking. Here’s my video going through the prep, cooking and eating process. I would definitely buy these and use them again after seeing some tips on YouTube on how to cook them. Some tips are not to cook them more than 2 minutes. Also, a lot of people recommend drying them out in a frying pan and adding your sauce once dried. I will be trying that out and report back on how that worked.
Can This High Protein Pudding Really Taste Good? Today I am reviewing MHP’s Power Pak Pudding. The one that I’m reviewing is the 8.8 oz. butterscotch flavor here are some key takeaways that I have for this protein pudding. It’s Low Carb 7g total High Protein 30g per serving It’s Sugar Free and No Sugar Alcohols Total Fat 5g Gluten Free Lactose Free So there’s the important stats about this pudding but the real question is how does it taste? I have gone through about a half dozen of these pudding in the past week and I would give it a thumbs up on flavor. It does have that sugar free aftertaste but it’s not too noticeable. The texture an the consistency are OK and probably a little thicker than a regular pudding. I have noticed no side effects like I do when I eat something that contains sugar alcohols so that to me is a plus. I haven’t tried any of the other flavors besides the butterscotch but they come in vanilla, chocolate and butterscotch.
Monthly Beef Jerky Delivery…Oh yeah! In this post I will be reviewing SumoJerky which is a beef jerky of the month club. The guy that is the CEO started this company to bring small batch beef jerky makers to the masses. As a lover of beef jerky I’m a total sucker when it comes to seeing homemade beef jerky at a checkout counter. I love trying new beef jerky recipes and checking out all the different flavors and consistencies. Beef jerky is definitely one of my go to snacks when I’m eating low carb and Sumo Jerky definitely fits the bill. Every month Ryan from Sumo Jerky will be sending you out a batch of jerky from different small beef jerky makers from around the country. Signing up for the program is easy and they send you a free beef jerky sample to get started. Click Here To Get SumoJerky Use Coupon Code I found that the pricing can be expensive if you are going with just the 1 package of jerky per month but when you get into the 3 bag or 6 bag autoship the price seems to be very reasonable for gourmet beef jerky. This is gourmet beef jerky so don’t expect to be getting that crap that you can go out and buy at Wal Mart. SumoJerky Is In!! So I finally got my delivery of SumoJerky this weekend, from the time that I signed up until the time that it got delivered was about 10 business days so that seems pretty reasonable. I think it seemed longer because I was really looking forward to trying this out. I used the Sumo Jerky coupon code and received a free bag of jerky with the order. In this order there were 2 different types of jerky from 2 different Jerkier’s (not sure if that’s a real thing). I have my own dehydrator and make my own jerky so I love trying different Jerky makers. The Club I like the concept of getting gourmet jerky delivered to me every month and here’s why. Even after my first month of Sumojerky I have found 2 beef jerky makers that I never would have found. The price for 3 bags of jerky through SumoJerky is actually quite competitive to getting these straight from the makers but if you add in free shipping it’s a little cheaper. So not only are you getting a good price on beef jerky, you are actually getting such a variety of places that you can then go and re-order your favorites through the makers website. I love beef jerky but I don’t think that I would be scouring the internet for new beef jerky makers so for me Sumo Jerky is a true value. I would recommend that anyone that loves beef jerky try out SumoJerky for at least a month and I think that You’ll be hooked especially if you are on a low carb diet and looking for low carb friendly snacks.
