Spices & Herbs

#2
I just checked on the Atkins website...

Phase 1 Acceptable Food - Atkins.com

There are a few common spices and herbs listed. I think something like curry powder and garam masala will have more 'substantial' carbs, just because they are a mixture of spices.

Sausages: I buy chipolatas. I just bought some from Asda, (extra special ones) they are something like 95% pork and I checked ingredients and there appears to be no added starch or sugar. But having said that I wouldn't stuff my face with them!! lol
I also have had the Tescos, extra special, chipolatas and they are similar.

SF jelly: I dont know, but I think I remember seeing them in the sticky above - So your thinking of starting Atkins. Worth checking out.

Its a really helpful thread and I'm always refering to it lol

Besides that, I'm pretty sure it will contain sweetner, and your only allowed a certain limit a day, 3 teaspoons/sachets a day (I think) and I read somewhere that a can of diet soda is 1.5 portions....so I dont know what SF jelly is (I'm not sure as I avoid sweetners altogther)

HTH Good Luck on Monday :))

Herbs and spices are more or less carb free. If you look at nutrition it normally says per 100g. But who would use that much. It nomally a tsp here and there, so I would say you are safe. However in "paste" form. be-where.
Sausages. Check the meat percentage. anything lower than about 90% will have more carbs. Go for "The Black Farmer" range, about 0.3carbs per 100g. Just read the nutrition labels.
Jelly-no idea don't eat it.

Aww good luck!

Is it your first induction?

I found it quite hard the few 4 days. Day 5 was sooo much better, and thats when the 1lbs started to come off. And day 6 (today) is even more so!

I think what helped me, is make sure you have some sort of potassium supplement. Because, the first few days, I took a multi-vitamin without it in. Then I swapped to a different brand, with a good amount of potassium in and I felt much better.

I dont know why, I think its something to do with electrolytes.

Good Luck :)

Hi Jane and good luck for Monday.

You can see a whole list of low carb sossies (and lots of other stuff) on the Low Carb Shopping sticky - check it out. I like the Debbie and Andrew garden herb sausages, 0.2 carbs per sausage.

I use loads of herbs and curry powder and haven't had a problem.

I also like the sugar free jelly, which is fine for induction, pour cream over it and mmmmm :)

Why not start up your own thread in the Diary section and write down your menus, then we can have a look and give you some pointers?

Unfortunately cream stalls me so I don't have it very often.

It is limited on induction, check the book for the exact amount.

Yes, watch the cream - UP TO 3 tbsp per day on Induction so use it with caution. It is very more-ish.
