Gluten Free Pizza Crust (Made with Chicken!)

source: Your Lighter Side

     My wife tried her hand at a Gluten Free Pizza Crust recipe that she found on another blog (link) and the results were actually quite tasty. The pizza crust photo that you see above is made simply from ground chicken breast and mozzarella cheese. We covered it with some spices and threw it in the oven to toast.    

     Jordan was generous with the toppings and you're welcome to top yours with whatever your heart desires. She opted for green and black olives, mushrooms, zucchini, roasted bell peppers, jalapenos and mozzarella cheese. Yum. 

Just look how delicious that turned out. We added some crushed red pepper to give it some kick. 

     Here's a closeup shot of that crust. This recipe was a great find! We enjoyed it so much that we plan on making this again in the future. So delicious!

Quick, Colorful Breakfast / Potato Cakes with Bell Pepper Eggs

     A quick breakfast this morning. We go through eggs often but this time we wanted to make it a bit different and colorful to brighten the day. We had left over mashed potatoes from the other night so we turned those into potato cakes and added a little bit of mozzarella cheese and a few snips of green onions. 

     On the left we have two fried (well) eggs. To add some color and taste Jordan threw some some diced green, yellow and red bell peppers. I was a bit apprehensive about eating bell peppers on my eggs but in the end I gobbled it right up. 

     Overall, it was a quick meal and simple, we just wanted something different than just eggs and say... toast.

Dynamite Shrimp

Based on the dish from Applebee's.

Fried popcorn shrimp
A bed of coleslaw mix (no dressing)
A sweet/spicy sauce made from honey mustard,
mayonnaise and cayenne pepper


Made by my mom on Christmas Eve. These are now a tradition at our house. Made with Ina's recipe and raspberry sauce.

NOT low carb. ;)

Low-carb Oopsie Burger

Also low carb. The "oopsies" (the bun halves) are made from whipped egg whites and cream cheese, and have about 1 carb each. This whole burger has less than 4 carbs total.
And it's delicious.

BLT on Flaxseed Bread

Low-carb. As I recall, each piece of "bread" has about 2 carbs.

Homemade Italian Nachos

Inspired by Johnny Carino's.

Baked wonton wrappers
Italian sausage
Black olives
Chopped tomatoes
Mozzarella cheese
Alfredo sauce
