    I'd suggest to do a google on "Linda's low carb recipes" ...There is some really good stuff on there.

    A favourite of mine is actually a dessert....double cream whipped with some cocoa and sweetener :eat:

    Ommeletes - add what you like. I like goats cheese and chives. Something I thought of recently is:

    Getting sausagemeat (I buy good quality 95% pork sausages) I take them out the skins and add other herbs or seasonings then make into balls and fry in oil, add veg - I use spinach, garlic and mushrooms. Add some double cream so you now have these pork meatballs in a sauce, perhaps serve up with mashed cauliflower or thin courgette strips? I love this stuff!

    With Atkins I have discovered that foodwise, you are only limited by carb count and imagination.

    Don't be afraid to use herbs and spices. Have a good read of the recipe sticky. I love to experiment with flavours. Today I had a rabbit so I marinated it in spices and roasted it slowly. Soooooooo good, served on a bed of cabbage. Yummy.

    Some of my favourites -

    - chilli mince - fry the fattest, cheapest mince you can find up, add a sprinkle of chilli flakes and mix in some steamed cabbage
    - chicken curry - fry chicken bits up in olive oil (actually that's all I ever use) and turn the heat off, leaving some olive oil in the pan. Sprinkle medium curry powder over it and coat the chicken, then serve on a bed of iceberg lettuce and squirt a big dollop of low carb mayo
    - cheeseburger pie - see the Just Recipes thread
    - in fact, go right through the Recipes thread from page 1, some lovely ideas
    - also see the Low Carb Shopping List sticky for your shopping

    Hope that helps.

    Kieran - the meatballs sound fab, will try those.

    How strange, for me Atkins has been the most varied diet I've ever tried.

    It is liberating knowing I can eat all the foods I like...and lose weight. I think more people should be doing Atkins!

    Agreed, Kieran - I'm eating more veg than ever before, drinking buckets of water, and making sure that there is little/no salt, sugar or preservatives in what I'm eating because i'm cooking from scratch. For a woman who lived on ready meals and pizzas, that's not bad going, even if I keep falling off the wagon! :)

    Now...where's that halo gone? lol.

    I made a beef curry tonight. Was delicious. The coconut oil just made it special. I start it off with a little evoo, and then melt coconut oil in when it is simmering.

    I have developed a love for cooking again. It is really good :)

    No, I'm still working up to that. I do grow my own veg in my garden and I'm looking for some land for live stock etc. I hunt and fish and forage quite a bit. It's just a great way of living, especially since I live in a city which happens to be very green.

    He is - uses lots of local advice and is just on the nerdy side to make me like him (I normally run screaming from celebrity chefs) :)

    Hugh Fairly-LongName is really rather good - I wonder though, how much behind the camera help he had in getting River Cottage set up. I admire him for inspiring people to care more about produce and growing your own vegetables, I certainly think he's a positive influence.

    I would love to have a smallholding someday; but we must walk before we run, I have a small garden and I have planted herbs, peppers, pumpkins and strawberries. Wondering though; is it worth buy a small polytunnel? Not a walk in one, but just big enough to surround the plants?
